Verdict

There may not be a market formed for this but if there is DALTON HIGHWAY is suggested as the most likely winner as he has been racing in very tough handicaps since winning at Killarney in August including when a very good fifth in the Irish November Handicap at Naas. Vocal Resurgence was only just touched off in a Dundalk handicap last week and can get competitive while the likes of Baby Jake, Neverushacon, Bronco Bill and Taglietelle can make their presence felt.
