    Verdict

    The percentage call has to go to Takamaka Bay in this tight little handicap. The Mark Johnston-trained horse has stamina in abundance and will relish a battle if taken on for the lead near the finish. Pasithea may be seen to better effect with some cut in the ground so the improving Vicious Warrior may pose the biggest threat. Lermontov is also capable of taking a hand if any where near his best but on the balance of this seasons form he looks opposable.
