Verdict

After a more than comfortable success on his debut in these ranks BILLIE JEAN should take this sprint handicap ahead of hat-trick seeker Wanchai Whisper while Athwaab was eye-catching in the finish last time and rates as a danger. Michael Hills had little more than a steering job on the pick last time pushing him out in the final stages to win by an easy couple of lengths. Had he been carrying the extra nine pounds he has here that day he still would have won so if taking to the surface he should be scoring again. Whanchai Whisper couldn't be in better form having first taken a claimer and then just getting up when eight pounds better off in a handicap on his latest run. That mark rise seems a little harsh but he's looked an improved animal recently and could pose a few questions to the pick. Athwaab is closely matched with the one we've just mentioned based on their last meeting and was finishing the better so should also go close as should Kings Of Leo who represents a yard going well. There are a few in with chances here but only if Billie Jean is under par.
