Verdict

This looks a wide open Handicap and although Miss Gorica has great claims based on her form in listed company there are doubts weather she gets this trip so instead we turn to AXIOM while Suruor should also be in the picture. The pick was still going when he got up to land a decent race during Glorious Goodwood on his last starts and although his six pound mark rise makes things tougher he still is unexposed enough to find a bit more. Miss Gorica was second in a listed sprint race at Naas in June having already landed a very valuable handicap in Dubai. All that adds up to some of the best form on display here but so far this trip has been too much of a stretch. Suruor is a consistent sort who is normally on the premises and despite being three pounds heavier for a success in a hot looking race last time should still be competitive. Invincible Force looks an animal on the upgrade having won his last two starts but with the handicapper looking to have that one now we look to Axiom.
