Verdict

EHTEDAAM was having just his third career start and making his handicap debut when scoring with some authority here last month and looks the type to progress into a better handicapper than his current mark suggests. He's handed the vote though Nabucco, who wasn't far behind him that day after a very long break, also has plenty of scope and will be winning soon. Status Symbol, who finished sixth, got no sort of run and that performance should be ignored. Assizes has only won once in 17 starts but ran his best race for a while at Musselburgh last time while both Niceofyoutotellme and Basseterre are capable of a big show at their best in an open handicap.
