Verdict

White Dart stayed on strongly to win last time out and races under a penalty for that success and has to be respected as he is due to race off 75 next time. Out Of Nothing took advantage of a lower all-weather mark when last seen and has won at the course before on heavy ground so is worth noting, but we tentatively select EMERALDS SPIRIT. Plenty of the horses in this field have raced together before and Emeralds Spirit was a runner-up behind Chookie Avon last time, who in turn lost out to White Dart most recently. The selection beat Geojimali at the end of September and off these revised marks they may battle it out again, whilst North Central may also be able to contend for the frame places. This race is a riddle that's difficult to work out but Emeralds Spirit is the percentage call having won here before and with the ability to handle the conditions.
