Verdict

In a open handicap ISTIQDAAM looks on a progressive run of form and we take a chance there's more to come off bottom weight with Sir Nod and Turn Me On in with every chance. The form is nothing short of rock solid for the pick's last run when he was a little unlucky to bump into two the better. The winner has gone on win and place twice in good looking races whist the runner up has also secured plenty of prize money since that contest. The pick is up in the weights despite that defeat but this looks an easier assignment. Sir Nod has won two of his three starts this season and while that is good form he now looks a little high in the weights. Turn Me On goes well at this track so while he is also sneaking up the weights he needs to be respected and Legal Eagle enters the fray after an improving run of results. Another tight puzzle to solve but Istiqdaam has every chance off bottom weight.
