    Verdict

    Another competitive handicap in which most have some sort of chance. Templepark has yet to finish out of the frame over fences but he’s not won over a trip this far. Overland Flyer won on his final start last season and shouldn’t fail through lack of fitness but Bally Longford is probably due a rest and looks fully exposed. Mahlermade could figure if in the mood while Walt won a Grade 3 at Kempton earlier this year and is starting to slip down the weights again but CRESSWELL LEGEND looked to be on the way back at Exeter and is just preferred. Brother Tedd is another with stamina to prove and Jersey Bean hasn’t taken to fences so far, though remains unexposed.
