Verdict

RAVI RIVER ran as well as can have been expected in a seller last time but has more realistic claims back in the handicap ranks and looks capable of going close from an attractive mark although he's likely to be held up and may need a strong pace to aim at. Mr Lu should race prominently from his low draw and will consequently get first run on the selection and he has to be on the short-list having gone close over course and distance last time. Chookie Avon and Diamond Daisy may improve for the fitting of headgear whilst Saddlers Bend has run well on all three visits here and it would be no surprise to see her go well on her return to Dunstall Park whilst Downhill Skier also comes under consideration.
