Verdict

A very tight looking handicap. Srucahan looks sure to be in the firing line having shown his liking for soft ground in his two starts this season but the lightly-raced and progressive TYLERY WONDER can begin the campaign where he left off last term. A winner over the course and distance in September, he was then narrowly beaten in two strong handicaps here in the next few weeks and with more to offer can make a successful return. Elusive In Paris has only won at Dundalk and is better over further while the lightly-raced Hi Emperor hasn't been seen for over a year though he's generally well supported so watch the betting. Balmont Blast is the only three-year-old entered and faces a stiff task against seasoned handicappers.
