Verdict

BRINESTINE seems to be slowly getting his act together and is making his handicap debut this afternoon. He has plenty of weight but may prove better than this grade in time. Uriah Heep is starting to knock on the door and should be winning soon while Don Pooleoni and Foxes Bridge have both shown enough to suggest they'll be thereabouts if fully wound-up. Cruise In Style probably isn't badly treated back over timber but Lyssio was pulled up at Plumpton when last seen and Ladies Dancing hasn't been at his best since returning from his summer break, though has been eased in the weights again.
