        Verdict

        A very competitive 20-runner sprint in which Soaked can reverse Haydock form with King's Ballet. Seb Sanders replaces an inexperienced rider for this race and, clearly well handicapped at best, David Chapman's gelding can gain his 17th win. King's Ballet was well handicapped for that event so, running from the same mark, a case can be made for him too. Of the others, the booking of Kieren Fallon for Linda Perratt's Viewforth is interesting. Course and distance winner, Tick Tock, is blinkered for the first time but they would need to bring about improvement, while the only other c/d winner in the contest, College Maid (who took to first-time blinkers last time and is closely weighted with Aahgowangowan on that run, disregarding his rider's allowance), could go well. American Cousin, Laurel Dawn, Aahgowangowan and Northern Svengali have all won from higher marks so cases can be made for them too.
