Verdict

ELKSTONE is far from the most reliable but he's well treated and took a step back in the right direction last time, so he could be worth chancing in a race where the entire field have questions to answer. Celma des Bois is a player if tuned up for his return, and handicap/chasing debutant Big Bad Buzz is worth monitoring in the betting back from a break.
