Verdict

This is more competitive than anything ILEWIN GEEZ has contested yet, but he was so convincing last time when stepped up to this trip that he appeals as being on the right side of the handicapper. Blackdown Hills may have beaten little last time but the handicapper has nevertheless taken a generous view of the performance. Francky Du Berlais and Captain Peacock had little between them here last time. Both will be carried out on their shields but a bigger threat may come from Commodore Barry who won with more in hand than the margin suggested last time.
  1. Ilewin Geez
  2. Blackdown Hills
  3. Commodore Barry
