Verdict

Wells De Lune heads the weights as he seeks to build on a gutsy all-the-way success here last time in a good-quality handicap. He's up 7lb for that win but James King's claim sorts 5lb of that so the Bowen candidate should again prove competitive. Mr Clarkson is upped in grade and both Tsundoku and Mega Double take the journey form Class 4 to Class 3 company but are noteworthy off their current handicap marks. Melody Of Scotland is in fine heart but 18lb higher for recent successes and COURT DREAMING is preferred. He's admirably consistent whilst continuing to suggest there's more to come off his current mark. Justatenner is an each-way play.
