Verdict

It's dangerous to rule anything out in a race of this nature and EXCELLENT SHOW is probably a little higher in the weights than ideal but her consistency earns her the verdict. She has run twice over course and distance and has a win and a second to her name; she has only finished out of the frame once since winning here and has to race from a 2lb higher mark. Love You Louis is a dual course and distance winner and one of those wins came from a similar mark but Freddie's Girl and Italian Tom may need a little help from the handicapper in order to resume winning ways. Vhujon is capable but does need the cards to drop right.
