    Verdict

    LANDSHARK is the pick of Jessica Harrington's stable jockey and that could prove significant. The expensive purchase may be the one to side with despite the yard being a little out of form. Yard form would also have to be a concern for New To Town backers but she holds leading form claims after a pair of runner-up efforts but Man Power may be the main danger to the selection after a promising run last time out.
