Verdict

ELUSIVE EXCLUSIVE made a highly encouraging start for his new yard when fourth in a handicap at Limerick 11 days ago, likely to have been closer with a clear run, so he's fancied to build on that and gain a belated first success. Balkos arrives on the back of an improved showing and has the assistance of Paul Townend, so he's regarded as a threat along with Just Another Lady.
