Verdict

Both Perfect Mission and Silverware failed to figure off higher marks last time having won their previous starts on the Polytrack and it was only a claimer that Where's Reiley won at this track back in October. On The Hoof found just enough to hold off Al's Memory and land a course double on Saturday and had beaten Rock Anthem four lengths before that. Another bold bid is expected from him but HANDHELD has tumbled down the weights this year and after a close-up third over 7f here last time, he looks the one to be on.
