Verdict

SECRET VENUE could be the answer to this tricky handicap and he gets the vote over Blue Tomato and Requisite. Jedd O' Keeffe's 3-year-old only just does enough in his races so he has been hard for the handicapper to get a grip on. He lost no caste in defeat behind Brierty at York last week and a reproduction of that effort would give him a big chance here. Blue Tomato is a course and distance winner and he did score very comfortably at Hamilton last time when he beat the old campaigner Raccoon. That was in a seller though and he has more on his plate tonight. Requisite has been running well but she gives the impression that the handicapper may now be catching up with her. Wicked Wilma and Sandwith are others with course and distance form who merit consideration, but in a trappy handicap we will put forward Secret Venue as the pick.
