Verdict

EASTERN TORNADO was shaping up nicely in handicaps when last seen in the summer and low mileage for a 4-y-o, a winning return would come as no surprise. Walnut Beach and Universal Focus could be the main dangers.

  1. EASTERN TORNADO (IRE)
  2. WALNUT BEACH (IRE)
  3. UNIVERSAL FOCUS (GER)
