Verdict

This looks a decent opportunity for RESTLESS BAY, who can take the Reg Hollinshead yard into double figures for 2012. He's been performing consistently in handicap company this year and is well suited by race conditions dropped in grade. Julius Geezer actually boasts an official higher rating but his form profile is maddeningly inconsistent, making him impossible to predict. His yard is in good form now, though, after a quiet start to the campaign. Umph looks best of the David Evans' pair while Basle and Finefrenzyrolling are not discounted.
