Verdict

A tight handicap but MEA PARVITAS has been making gradual progress and can go one better than when just failing to catch Copper Dock last week. She didn't get the clearest of runs that time and compensation awaits though Like Magic, who was a close third, looks a threat again. Ocean Drift was caught close home over 7f here last week but isn't well drawn here while Pierre D'or is still a maiden on the surface though he's been running very well and should be winning soon. Bangalore Diamond hasn't had a busy campaign and looked on the way back when a close fourth here last month so he's another to consider.
