Verdict

This looks a very tight handicap. Golden Shoe was conceding Atticus Finch 13lb including jockey's claim when beaten just over a length a month ago and should be up to reversing the form, especially as the winner was beaten into third last week when Curl Cat was only just behind. Shake The Bucket started favourite for that event won by Atticus Finch which was a surprise as all of his best form has been over further. Cash Or Casualty has found his form but has plenty to find with Curl Cat on earlier running while Limerick winner Danzerini hasn't been seen since August. HE'S GOT RHYTHM isn't the most prolific of winners but he's consistent enough and is handed the vote after he produced his best run for a while when runner-up over the track and trip last week.
