Verdict

In the hope that he's ready to roll following a break, BIG BARD gets the nod in this competitive handicap. He wasn't seen to best effect when bidding for the hat-trick at Chelmsford in November and there could be more to come from this lightly-raced 4-y-o. Phoenix Star promises to be suited by the return to 6f and he is next on the list ahead of Mister Bluebird and G'Daay.

  1. BIG BARD
  2. PHOENIX STAR (IRE)
  3. MISTER BLUEBIRD
