Just the four runners turn up for this handicap where THE LAST DON is very much on the upgrade and is taken to land is hat-trick but only just ahead of Deuce with Fin Vin De Leu probably best of the remaining pair. The selection is rapidly climbing the weights and finds himself a further six pounds heavier after a narrow success last time. He idled in front that day which suggest more can be gotten out of him and with the form looking strong from both of his last two victories he has to get the vote. Deuce was well held in second place last time but finished ahead of a subsequent winner. She's on decent form at present, however, her mark now might be a little high. Fin Vin De Leu returns to his last winning mark but is yet to win on Polytrack and finally Eighdaysaweek could feature but seems to be best on the Fibresand. There might just be four runners but it¿s not easy, however, The Last don looks to be going places.
