Verdict

A race with a fair few making their handicaps debuts and the majority of those are stepping up in distance also. The most attractive proposition though looks to be BRAEMAR whose debut second in a handicap could not have been better advertised. He didn’t quite looks the finished article there and is expected to know more this time around. Optimum Time took a step back in the right direction last time out without having a the run of the race and he’s worth a look along with Rocky Shores who showed at Brighton he’s a tough nut to crack. Of the handicap debutantes Mankind and Global Art look two of the most interesting and are worth a market check.
  1. Braemar
  2. Optimum Time
  3. Rocky Shores
