Verdict

Availed Speaker will be carrying no weight with Samantha Bell's claim taken into account,t though his victories have come on the all-weather. Cravat hasn't won since 2011 and has dropped to a very fair mark as a consequence. He's run a bit better on his last couple of starts so should get into the argument. Hydrant is running well at present and any further rain will help his cause. However, he was behind the veteran EDAS here last summer and the latter is likely to start a much bigger price here so looks a fair each-way selection in a tight handicap. Rawaafed is generally consistent but his only success to date came in a Hamilton claimer.
