A competitive heat can be taken by HIGH RESOLUTION. Linda Perratt has been getting improvement out of the three-year-old this season and he looks well handicapped judged not only on recent wins, but also with his age allowance as a positive. He loves it here and acts well on good ground, so we give him the nod. Daring Dream and Fujin Dancer both come here in form but may find that the assessor now has their measure, while that already appears to be the case with both Applaude and Belle Noverre. High Resolution can complete a four-timer.
