Verdict

BARNABY BROOK scored over 1m2f here back in March and has every chance at the weights as he drops in class. He gets the nod ahead of Pixie Cut, a winner in France for Stan Moore in August. The latter's stablemate Star Of Namibia has also been racing in France but has yet to win while Syrenka is up against higher rated rivals than she beat in a seller here a fortnight ago. The less-exposed Wrecking Ball may well reverse running with the latter on only his second start of the year.
