Verdict

Cairdin has won a bumper and been successful twice over hurdles. He finished runner-up on his only start on Turf on the Flat in October when he had the likes of Go Native and Jezki behind. Diamondgeezer Luke has been plodding around here in his own time and has now gone 31 career starts without winning. Noah Webster ran well over this trip when runner-up here but then poorly back over 1m4f last week. He should be in the shake-up but with Jim Bolger's yard in unstoppable form the newcomer PASTILLA, who cost 190,000 dollars and makes her belated debut in this moderate affair, is handed the vote.
