After just holding on last time this step up in trip doesn¿t seem ideal for Fine Ruler so instead we¿ll make preference for VAMOS, in a tight handicap, although both Dream Huntress and Golden Prospect hold claims. Competitive off of this sort of the mark the selection seems to like it here and he could actually be well weighted with his pilot¿s seven pound claim. Fine Ruler has gone well off higher ratings in the past but has yet to convince over this far. He only just got home last time so his extra weight might also be prohibitive. Dream Huntress goes well here but still looks a little high in the weights while Golden Prospect is bang in the picture under a burden just a pound heavier than when last getting on top. A good competitive end to the card that can go the way of Vamos.
