Verdict

WALSER never got involved dropped in trip last time but had gone close over course and distance before that and has as good a chance as any in a wide open race. Walkabout Creek can figure having found only one too good on his last couple of starts and Phoenix Returns also has a shout after posting a better effort at Kelso, though he's unproven over the distance. Cloud Creeper and Desgrey are others to consider with improvement likely and Solidago is not out of this on his placed efforts of last summer.
