Verdict

The first of two divisions of the staying handicap hurdle, and for this one, it may pay to look at the class-droppers towards the top of the handicap. MINNIE MILAN might be the one able to take advantage of the handicapper's generosity in dropping her another 5lb and she didn't run quite as badly as her form suggested last time. This is undoubtedly easier and she can bounce back. The Wise One probably needed his comeback effort to blow the cobwebs away, and may prove to be the main danger. Court Baloo isn't the quickest but he is at least likely to run his race, and can take third.
  1. Minnie Milan
  2. The Wise One
  3. Court Baloo
