Verdict

A fiercely competitive contest this but there may just be a Graded class horse in the field in top-weight JOLLY'S CRACKED IT and his class and course form is the most persuasive factor in this wide-open handicap. Others with strong claims include ultra-consistent soft ground lover Mr Antolini who is a proven commodity in such contests having won the Imperial Cup and the closely matched pair of unexposed hurdlers Lisp and Mont Des Avaloirs.
  1. Jolly's Cracked It
  2. Mr Antolini
  3. Lisp
