Verdict

IGOYOUGO is fancied to gain some more reward for his consistency as he can see off Bravely and Distant Sun in a very competitive sprint handicap. Geoff Harker's gelding has been in fine form this season, rising a total of 15lb in the handicap after a successful spell in August. He evidently gets on well with the dependable Silvestre De Sousa and despite this career-high mark he is expected to go well. Bravely ran a blinder behind Hotham last time out, form that has been franked since, whilst Hawkeyethenoo won very readily the other day and a 6lb penalty may not be enough to stop him featuring heavily once again. There are plenty of course and distance winners in the race, of which the best look to be Wicked Wilma and top-weight Ingleby Star who doesn't look too badly treated at present. The return to this trip will suit Distant Sun, Sandwith is dangerously well-handicapped, whilst Roger Curtis brings Lesley's Choice a long way north and the visor is on for the first time so he needs a market check. A tricky way to end the card, but we are happy to side with Igoyougo.
