Verdict

Descaro was receiving 5lb when beating LAUBERHORN by just under three lengths in a seller here last month. The pair meet off level weights today so you'd expect Evan Williams' charge turn to the tables and he is probably the one to beat on recent form. However, Latest Trend drops into a claimer for the first time and has the ability to figure while Uncle Roger and Smiling Lady are others eased in grade. The four-year-olds Golden Acorn and Rano Pano are already exposed at this level, however, and likely to find a couple too good again while Sure Thing looks a shadow of his former self.
