Verdict

MISS BOUNTY looks a potential 'plunge horse' in this finale for the wily George Baker and is selected accordingly. A recruit from Germany, this Bahamian Bounty mare has shaped with promise in two starts on these shores however the handicapper has consented to drop her to a mark of 61. That looks realistic and this looks a winnable race so with market support she should prove hard to beat. Cape Quarter resides on a fair mark but there might be issues over this longer trip, so a bigger danger might be Young Dottie with the promising Kieren Fox back on board. The well-handicapped War And Peace joins course winner Gross Prophet and the fairly-treated Having A Ball on the list of dangers, however it must be said that it is not the longest or most enticing list ever produced.
