Betting

Forecast

Poetic Light (5/2), Militry Decoration (3/1), Freescape (5/1), Just Sherry (6/1), Jango Fett (11/1), Brass Button (11/1), Painting Pictures (12/1), Bonnie Baugh (14/1), Verbitude (16/1), Smiling Eliza (20/1), Eos (20/1), Downtown Diva (33/1), Prep (33/1), Elusive Don (33/1), Itschessnotchekers (50/1), Feadan (50/1)

Verdict

Bellewstown winner Poetic Light isn't taken lightly now switching to the AW for handicaps and can go close if handling the surface while Militry Decoration may have more to offer now going handicapping over this shorter trip with the champion jockey for company. Jessica Harrington's recent record here isn't inspiring, but BONNIE BAUGH at least proved she's effective on the surface last time out and, upped in trip now, she can make a winning handicap debut. Smiling Eliza is worth noting in the betting at this venue for the first time along with Just Sherry, who improved markedly last time out at Down Royal.
