Verdict

It will be interesting to see if there's any money for Papa Caruso, who won on his reappearance at Newcastle last term, but the one to beat is probably THE MAGIC BISHOP. Malcolm Jefferson's seven-year-old won over a longer trip here two runs ago before finishing fifth on a subsequent visit to the track. But that still gives him the beating of the disappointing Whats Up Woody while Rossini's Dancer was never travelling at Kelso last time. The top weight did beat the selection at Perth in September, however, and could make a race of it despite a big turnaround in the weights.
