Verdict

Well below his last winning mark and showing signs of form RACCOON gets the call in another wide open handicap. A winner off a mark of 72 in the past Ruth Carr's runner was only just held by the re-opposing Alacity and with that rival now under a penalty that form should be reversed. Rio Sands was only just denied last time and off a comparable weight must have every chance and Tamarind Hill is also one of the more likely after a solid bid from this rating last time out. A few if buts and maybes but Raccoon looks the best call.
