Verdict

CUT AND THRUST is looking to end a long losing run here, but looks capable of winning again off his current mark having gone close when third over C&D last time. He gets the vote. Having A Ball also has solid claims, though his previous three wins at this track came over a mile, while Avalon Bay should be winning soon as he continues to drop down the handicap. Young Simon's only victory to date came over 6f here and C&D winner Royal Envoy makes more appeal on his comeback run.
