Verdict

Diggeratt was expected to do better on his last start but was ultimately well held so despite the fact his yard are still in good form it might be best to look elsewhere. Gemma's Delight has won her only start here but looks a little high in the weights while Dazeen will have every assistance from his pilot but looks a little off colour. Mr Udagawa bounced back to form on his last run and now looks a contender but DOWNHILL SKIER gets the verdict after a ear miss off this mark last time.
