The late nature of Honest Broker's win at Kempton last time means he might be better value for that success than the margin suggests but he's definitely better on the artificial stuff so preference is made for the potentially well weighted QUITE SPARKY while Dhhamaan may also feature. Stonehaugh should also go well after his win last time but he was all out for that so might struggle under his revised mark while Polish World is consistent but found himself too high in the weights when last seen after landing a hat-trick. So it's with handicap debutant Quite Sparky where the chance is taken after his run on his second start when he held Colepepper, who has since placed off a mark of 95 meaning his own rating of 70 might be lenient. Honest Broker wasn't stopping when grabbing that win at Kempton but he's still a maiden on turf and Dhhamaan was comfortable enough in victory on his last run to suggest he can go well from this revised mark. This looks wide open and Quite Sparky is a risk but it might be worth taking.
