Verdict

A good race that can go to FANTASY EXPLORER though Sundae and Beckermet are likely to have friends in the market. The selection has been a model of consistency over the last couple of months and was far from disgraced at Wolverhampton on Monday. The handicapper has had plenty of chance to look at him but course form counts for plenty. Sundae is tried in first time blinkers. He has only had one previous run on an artificial surface so has to go into the box marked unexposed. Beckermet is potentially well treated on some of his turf form so the market has to be noted accordingly. Earlsmedic rarely wins though will give a good sighter from the front. Haajes has dropped back to a winning mark while Shifting Star appeared a progressive handicapper last term though has not exactly pulled up trees this calendar year. Plenty of plausible winners of this pot and Fantasy Explorer is the most deserving in our opinion.
