Verdict

Fairy Mist may struggle on today's terms, but it looks pretty tight at the weights between the remainder at first glance. However, a closer look reveals that CONDUCTING beat Bert The Alert and Officer In Command in a handicap over course and distance in January. The latter has since won and there's no good reason why Gay Kelleway's charge shouldn't come out on top once again. Priestley's Reward won a seller over a longer trip here in December and could prove the biggest threat to the selection.
