Verdict

This looks another tight handicap which this time is taken to go to ANNES ROCKET. A winner when getting the better of the consistent Piper's Piping two starts ago the pick ran a decent race in defeat off this rating when last out and a similar run might be enough. Dvinsky is well below his last winning mark and likes it here but will need to step up on recent runs. Sovereignty should show up in the mix after running up to form on his latest and with five course wins while Delaware Dancer can't be trusted fully but isn't badly treated on handicap debut.
