Verdict

A fiercely competitive 3-y-o handicap that might go the way of SURRY MIST. He's been most impressive the last twice and his latest success at Kempton is proving strong form, so he gets the nod in the hope that he's as effective back on turf. Israr and Mr Big Stuff are two of several who have the scope to improve.

  1. SURREY MIST (FR)
