Verdict

Quest Magic had Tiny Dancer behind when third to Flaming Arrow over course and distance last month while Alison Hamilton will be hoping Damascus Steel can build on his second to The Cockney Mackem at Perth. But the vote goes hurdling debutant ISLAND CONFUSION, who has already won a point-to-point and a bumper and should be suited by this stiff course. Bardeli may be capable of better but has disappointed so far.
