Verdict

The progressive Our Kes gets the vote here with King's Spear and Blushing Prince rating the main dangers. The selection has wion her last two races in good style and although rising in the wieights still looks ahead of the handicaper and under conditions that suit is hard to oppose. King's Spear rates the main danger on his latest third behind Penang Cinta, he looks sure to improve for this longer trip and should be watched in the market. Blushing Prince is another that could go well as he won well last time but this is much more competitive and he loos vulnerable under his penalty. Of the remainder Starcross Maid has yet to prove she stays this far while Mahmjra looks weighted up to his best and with this in mind for the winner we are happy to return to the progressive Our Kes.
