Verdict

JONNIE SKULL loves it here and his latest second over a longer trip is easily the best recent form on offer. Phil McEntee's eight-year-old should take all the beating as Bladewood Girl might need some respite from the handicapper to get her head back in front and Tiger's Home, behind Bladewood Girl here in the spring, is probably better over sprint distances nowadays. It's difficult to make a case for any of the others on what they've shown over the last couple of months.
