We end with and ultra competitive sprint handicap where LAKE CHINI is the percentage pick as King Of Swords and Monte Cassino also have strong chances. Running off this mark last time to run on well and grab second place late on it's feasible the pick can go one better here especially with some his main rivals having to face increased burdens. King Of Swords was a winner last time out and as a result his mark is up three pounds. That's about fair and while he has run well under heavier burdens in the past it's rare to see winning sequences being racked up in these races at this level. Monte Cassino is weighted to challenge but his mark rise despite defeat last time is a negative and Top Bid is consistent and should be in the mix. Not easiest assisgnment to find the winner and Lake Chini is our suggestion.
