Verdict

A competitive-enough looking contest, it may be worth taking a punt on VENTURA DRAGON, who looked in need of his first run back last time but before that had been running to a higher mark than his current in this sphere. The handicapper is giving him a chance now and may just be able to take it. Kenny George sets the form standard based on his win last time but the 7lb rise is off-putting, while the likes of Lester Kris and Remember The Man are also being given a chance by the handicapper and both look to be turning a corner in form.
  1. Ventura Dragon
  2. Kenny George
  3. Lester Kris
