Verdict

The Gaikwar, Will The Till and Border Edge are the three to concentrate on in the finale and the vote is given to Will The Till. The Gaikwar deserves to get his head in front as he has finished second in each of his last four starts. He was beaten a head by Will The Till on his penultimate start and they re-oppose today on identical terms. However, Greg Fairley's 7lb claim does give the Will The Till the slight edge today and for that reason we will make him our choice. Border Edge had been in good form before a disappointing effort last time at Windsor. That run may have come too quickly for him after a winning effort at Sandown but a 6lb penalty today hardly helps his cause. Silent Storm is more exposed than some of these but he will be suited by the step-up in trip and he could have decent place claims. This is a competitive handicap to round-up the card and the vote is given to Will The Till.
