Verdict

SAXO JACK has only had seven races in his life but looked a nice prospect when gaining his third career victory here a month ago and a 5lb rise is by no means excessive so he is handed the vote. Sanshaawes has had even less experience and there was plenty to admire about his victory on Turf a fortnight ago. He has to be considered a threat as he holds Start Right on that run and the latter has since run a tremendous race behind Elleval on Tapeta. Tarbawi landed a minor handicap here in December and suffered a massive weight assessment but has done well from his new mark and shouldn't be given up on.
