Verdict

COCKALORUM has acquitted himself well in top-end handicaps on his last 3 starts and seems sure to go well again, so his claims appear to be as good as any. Platinumcard is perhaps capable of better still back down in trip and rates a big threat, while Tommy G is another in-form rival to take seriously.
