A tricky finale that can go to WHATCANISAY. The gelding has started to take advantage of a falling mark and was only held by what has turned out to be a well-handicapped runner last time. Mischief Man was comfortable enough in victory last time but although a similar run might be enough he's never been the most consistent. Papradon should be capable off this mark based on his easy score three starts ago but hasn't matched that in a couple of runs since. Canal Bank will need to be better for an introduction into handicap company so Whatcanisay has a decent chance of going in.
