Verdict

A highly competitive finale to the card and it's the veteran SHAKE THE BUCKET who gets the nod. He produced a much improved effort last time out and is well enough handicapped to take this if he can back produce a similar run here. Sleepy Head and Trautmann are two more runners who arrive in form and haven't been dealt with too harshly by the handicapper.
  1. Shake The Bucket
  2. Trautmann
  3. Sleepy Head
