    Verdict

    Sharp Operator has won just the once in 18 starts on the all-weather and that came over 1m2f. Amor Fati and Zahirah recorded wins over 7f earlier though both have struggled subsequently while Energia Flavio was winning off a higher mark here at this time last year and went close at the track on his latest start. ARROWZONE has done all his winning on artificial surfaces at this venue and notched-up his fifth success with last week’s course and distance victory. An apprentice’s allowance reduces a penalty and another bold bid looks likely from Kevin Frost’s charge.
