    Verdict

    WHATCANISAY can take this at the main expense of Justabout and Misamon. The last named did well in points last year and ran a decent race recently to be runner-up. The quality of that form looks questionable however and he is taken on. Justabout has been out of form until a couple of decent performances at Newton Abbot recently. Once again however, that may not be good enough here. Whatcanisay has only one win to show in his career so far. However, he may be about to double that after his best display for some time at Exeter recently. That contest has worked out well, and Whatcanisay can take advantage of the handicapper's generosity off a 2lb lower mark.
