A few tricky handicaps on the card today and this is probably the toughest, so just a narrow vote is given to Alberts Story, Playtotheaudience and Moonstreaker are put forward as the main dangers. Richard Fahey's four-year-old made an inauspicious return to the track at Hamilton earlier this month but can be given a good chance on the pick of last season's form. He was only just touched off at Hamilton last August when running off a mark of 54 and a repeat of that effort under this competent claimer should see him go close. Stable mate of the selection Playtotheaudiennce has obvious form claims with two victories under his belt this season. However the handicapper may have caught up him and a place is probably best he can achieve. Moonstreaker also boasts winning brackets this campaign and is certainly not of it today. All in all a very difficult race to assess, but Alberts Story does have a sporting chance
