Verdict

SANDS OF DEE won the amateur riders' handicap on this card 12 months ago. He hasn't been beaten far in any of his four runs since landing a claimer at Hamilton in June and has dropped a couple of pounds in the handicap lately. Dandy Nicholls' gelding gets a tentative vote as while Tongalooma has enjoyed a profitable campaign her latest fourth suggest the handicapper may have got to her for now. Rothesay Chancer also has plenty of weight and, like Two Turtle Doves, probably hasn't been done any favours by the draw. Gottcher is potentially well treated but is hard to fancy on recent efforts and Crimson Cloud struggles to get her head in front.
