Verdict

Cases can be made for several but the most compelling is for NEW YORK ANGEL, who judged on her early 3-y-o form must have a major say moving into handicaps off a mark of just 73. Mutasarref found a touch more improvement in first-time cheekpieces to get off the mark at Listowel back in September so he's feared most on first start for Ger Lyons, ahead of Knocknakilla and Skontonovski.
