There are several interesting runners going to post for this handicap. We'll nominate CREDIT SWAP but will be keeping an eye on Black Moma and We Have A Dream. That's not to say that we don't respect the chances of Super Frank who has won three of his last four starts and lines up under a penalty for the latest of them. That was his maiden success on turf and he's rated far lower than on the all-weather so could be hard to catch now that the penny's dropped. He's hardly inexperienced though so there must be a little doubt about that and he's also up against some well handicapped opponents. We Have A Dream won twice over course and distance last season from far higher marks than he races off today so he's a must for the short-list with the yard going well. Black Moma has joined a shrewd yard and is on a good mark; she's sure to be placed to advantage in due course and the market may prove useful in assessing her chances. Similar remarks apply to Credit Swap who has had two starts since leaving Luca Cumani and not threatened on either of them. That has seen him slip a little in the weights though and Steve Drowne takes over in the saddle which has to be viewed as a plus given his forty six per cent strike rate for the yard in recent seasons. The trip is a slight issue and this looks competitive enough for the grade but Credit Swap is of keen interest.
