Verdict

PINDAR remains in fine form. He won a couple of times over 1m2f during the summer and today's longer trip should be no problem given he's scored over hurdles since. Barney Curley's charge gets the nod ahead of Badea, who remains a maiden despite slipping down the weights, and Salisbury runner-up Elegant Ophelia, who should figure off her current mark but is hard to predict. Kames Park pops up at this level occasionally and Holden Eagle has claims back on the Polytrack.
