Verdict

Backhomeinderry was runner-up to Sidney Melbourne, who runs in the previous race, here last month and must have some sort of chance in a weak-looking finale. Paupers Presents may do better now going handicapping but Freddy's Star is only a plater and both Red Whisper and Nothing Is Forever lack a recent run. DARK SPIRIT hasn't been running badly and has slipped to a decent mark. In the hope a visor bring about a little improvement, he gets the nod as the four-year-old Golden Acorn has been beaten in sellers and claimers recently.
