Verdict

AAZIF wasn't winning out of turn here 12 days ago, when Langley House was well behind, after several fair efforts in decent company. He should be good enough to shoulder a penalty in this with Croco Bay probably the one to chase him home having won a handicap here last month before finishing fourth at Newcastle. It's difficult to make a case for any of the others.
