Yet another tricky handicap greets us here and you could make a case for at least half the field but HARRISON GEORGE looks competitively treated on this step down in class and he's taken to land this from Zomerlust and Prime Exhibit. The Richard Fahey-trained selection has been running well with limited success off this mark in his last couple of starts. This race though represents a slightly easier assignment and he has little to prove in regards to whether he can carry the weight on his back. Zomerlust on the other hand hasn't won off a mark this high for a while but nevertheless is in good heart after victory in a weaker event over course and distance last time out. Prime Exhibit has had two runs over this distance and won them both so warrants respect. Imaan is up three pounds for a victory last time out and still looks competitive, however, in a tight race, Harrison George can call the tune.
