Shamiana hasn't won in 13 starts but is rarely beaten far and should get into a place but Wasabi, who ran well in two handicaps on this track a year ago, has been well beaten over timber this winter. Zinnobar was beaten in two sellers last season and has a long absence to overcome so a chance is taken with BROWN PETE, who hasn't won for well over a year but has dropped to such a lowly mark that his turn must be near. Greyemkay shows the occasional glimmer of form and in such a low-grade handicap could be good enough to snatch a place at a fair price.
