Verdict

It would look to be those carrying penalties that are of most interest here with Highway One O One dropping back into novice company after being given a tough handicap debut although he does have a double penalty to cope with here. EQUUS AMADEUS will have come on for the run last time out and providing he settles this time around he should be a much more solid proposition here. Lungarno Palace won on his hurdling debut last time and he’s another who can improve while Salix and Jaboticaba are both of interest if they can settle better. Ilewin Geez and Mazalto are two other that enter the mix in what is a decent opener to the card.
  1. Equus Amadeus
  2. Lungarno Palace
  3. Ilewin Geez
