Verdict

This is a puzzle as owner Alan Potts has three entries and his retained rider Andrew Lynch has chosen the newcomer SIZING PLATINUM over Sizing Sahara and Sizing Solution, who both have experience. This is by no means the strongest of maidens and the jockey's choice could be vindicated as his mount is superbly bred for the job. Off The Charts started favourite at Wexford last month after a promising debut there in March but never really got involved and should be capable of better. Old Pride and Fred Diamond have shown some ability while Waylander would have to be considered if getting a run from his reserve spot.
