Verdict

RUMMAGING, who was narrowly beaten by the 107-rated Brendan Bracken at Down Royal in June, should make a winning handicap debut after winning his maiden much more easily than the head verdict suggests here in October. La Belle Maison showed her liking for this surface when just touched off by Mona Brown last month and the drop in trip shouldn't do much harm. Lord Kenmare rarely races over a trip this short and has been staying on over a mile recently but Greek Canyon has plenty of speed and will be better for last month's run, his first since July.
