Verdict

Smarty Socks isn't easy to catch right but is perfectly capable of going close on a going day whilst Gemma Tutty has struck up a really fine relationship with Talent Scout who arrives in search of a four-timer. However, he's up two grades now and may find the increased quality of competition too hot to handle. Snooky looks on a decent mark for the Fahey yard that likes to win here and gives the impression he has more to offer. Nameitwhatyoulike found some form the last time and has a course win to his name but a chance is taken with NINE REALMS. The Green Dancer colt has only had three runs in as many seasons and hasn't seen the track for well over 400 days. He looked very progressive in the early part of his three-year-old campaign and market support would boost confidence in the Haggas charge on this belated return to action.
