Verdict

BLACKLOOKS is much the best of a quintet from the Joseph O'Brien yard here, and was a big eyecatcher over a shorter trip here last week. The step up to 7f will suit, and he looks the most likely winner in what is otherwise a trappy contest. Whatharm has raised his game of late and should remain competitive with his ability to stay 1m from the front an advantage at this track. He looks the main danger, although handicap debutant Buzz Killington is interesting having qualified over inadequate trips.
  1. Blacklooks
