Verdict

A highly competitive handicap with quite a few of these known to each other. Mia's Boy finished just ahead of True To Form when fifth over 1m2f here last weekend and Emerald Wilderness occupied the same position in a race over track and trip on the same card. The latter had earlier finished behind GEORGE GURU, who in turn had found Loyalty too good at Kempton in November. But Mike Atwatter's charge re-opposes on much better terms today and it could be his turn to get his head in front. Progressive on the Turf last season, Haaf A Sixpence ran well for third at Wolverhampton last time and is another to consider in a wide-open affair.
