Verdict

AFKAR has been well beaten in decent handicaps recently, but the form of his earlier placed efforts in maiden company is streets ahead of today's rivals if he can reproduce it on the Fibresand. Pulsatilla was beaten only a length in both starts on the turf and she may figure, though Enchanted Dream is preferred after finishing second over track and trip last month. Riczar posted a better effort when fourth here a week ago and the debutant Field Finner looks one to keep an eye on.
