Verdict

YOUNG GLADIATOR can come on top in this handicap at the main expense of Not My Choice and Where's Reiley. Julie Camacho's 5-year-old has been given a little break since a good run here back in November when he chased home My Sweet Georgia. He is dropped in trip today but that will not be a problem as he has won over this course and distance and he is taken to regain the winning thread. Not My Choice went close over this course and distance last month but his record of two placed efforts in 12 starts on the all-weather hardly inspires confidence. In contrast, Where's Reiley has a decent strike-rate on the all-weather and he won despite getting outpaced early on over 5f here last time. The return to this slightly longer trip will suit and he is entitled to be thereabouts at the finish. Zeffirelli won a weak handicap over this course and distance last time out but the draw would be a negative for him today and he is another who is far from consistent. This looks a good opportunity for Young Gladiator and he is taken to score.
