Verdict

A race that revolves almost entirely around MATSUNOSUKE, who is given one more chance to show his capabilities. Ron Harris's eight-year-old was good enough to win a course and distance handicap off a mark of 102 in January, when still with Scobie Coogan. His new trainer got a tune out of him first time but it has been a tale of woe since and he now drops into this grade with a huge advantage at the weights if he can show some spark. Six Diamonds is in cracking form and could be the one to profit if our pick does not fire. Desperate Dan is another to short-list for prize money as this seems to be his grade and optimum trip, while Orpenindeed would want further to be seen to best effect.
