Verdict

Vipin is the most interesting runner here as he makes a handicap bow at the age of four after just three career starts. The Approve gelding has shown glimmers of ability in three mid-division finishes and Cieren Fallon is a strong booking. It will be interesting to see the level of market support that comes his way. I Think So was much better the last day, likewise Corked, and Mabo has been performing at a consistent level in similar contests. However, ENZO has returned in good heart after a short break and showed a positive attitude to score here last month. A 7lb rise seems harsh for a short head success but he still rates the one to beat.
