Verdict

Officer In Command beat much lower-rated horses in a seller here in November and Saharia's defeat of Prime Exhibit over track and trip a fortnight ago looks the stronger form. But a line through the latter makes ELUSIVE HAWK the one to beat on his third at this track back in September and a chance is taken that David Evans' charge is up to winning this on his return from a lay-off. It's hard to make a case for the remaining pair on today's terms, although Boom Or Bust has plummeted down the weights in a relatively short-time and may be capable of better.
