Verdict

Blue Wave is upped further in the weights for his recent win over track and trip but is not easily dismissed. Saying that, a 6lb turn around in the weights may well be enough for runner-up KASHMIR PEAK to reverse running with the top weight and John Quinn's charge gets the nod. The latter took revenge for an earlier defeat by Magika last time and collateral form with Blue Wave leaves Echo Brava with something to find. Nautilus ended last season looking in the handicapper's grip and this is tougher than Irish raider Gretzky's recent tasks at Dundalk. Gabrial's Star, Bute Hall and Gioia Di Vita all step up in class after recent placed efforts.
