Verdict
Plenty come into this race suggesting a victory is coming sooner rather than later but ELEUTHRA is well fancied to land the spoils. The eight-year-old has look revitalised this season in two starts and has some progression left, after being left on the same mark for this, he could be one step ahead of the handicapper. The veteran Doonard Prince has been showing no signs of stopping and was only beaten by a progressive handicapper last time, he also goes off the same mark in this. The likes of Teddy Boy and Bay of Skaill have been coming back into form as well and also get some respite in the weights and could be ones to follow closely.
  1. Eleuthera
  2. Doonard Prince
  3. Teddy Boy
