Forecast

Soulsaver (13/2), Waiheke (13/2), Ruby Yeats (15/2), Mauna Kea (15/2), Demon Fou (15/2), Southfield Torr (15/2), Shillingsworth (10/1), Steel Express (10/1), Crossley Tender (12/1), Zee Man (12/1), Flo'sboy Sam (12/1), Mr Magill (16/1), It's For Alan (16/1), Magic River (33/1)

Verdict

A puzzler to finish the card and perhaps CROSSLEY TENDER has been let in on a fair mark for his first crack at a handicap. He has been showing potential lately around Fontwell and could take a step forward here for a trainer with two winners from his last five runners. Plenty have claims, with Demon Fou likely better suited back down in trip sporting new headgear and Southfield Torr surely better than he showed here at Christmas. Waiheke paid for a late mistake last time and might get much closer while Soulsaver completes a lengthy shortlist.
  1. Crossley Tender
  2. Southfield Torr
  3. Demon Fou
