Verdict

Royal Focus was well supported in a 7f claimer on his debut at Down Royal in September and duly obliged. Caso Do Lago, who was a close third, won his next two races on this track and there's little between them here. Aru Cha Cha was a length behind the latter in one of those races and is 7lb better off so should reverse the form. Fine Cut dropped back to this trip here last time and won easily but has been raised a massive 16lb for his troubles. Invisible Flash has some decent form on Turf and makes her debut on the surface but the vote goes to LITTLE FASTNET, who showed potential in strong maidens and makes her handicap debut on a fair mark.
