Verdict

If able to build on his latest improved effort at Kelso, ARNICA could prove the answer to this tricky-looking handicap. He may have most to fear from Whiskey Lullaby, who has been turned over at short odds in a couple of runs over hurdles but appeals as the type to do better now handicapping. Tokaramore also has claims, while Midnight Aurora is one to note in the betting with cheekpieces refitted.
