Race Verdict

Arabian Spirit comes out best on these terms and he has to be of interest dropping into a claimer. He has not been at his best in two runs this year though, so slight preference is for MCCONNELL who has recorded eight of his 10 career wins over this C&D. Jack's Revenge also has winning form here and although he has a little bit to find on ratings it would not be the biggest surprise to see him go well.

Selection: McConnell        Danger: Arabian Spirit        Alternative: Jack's Revenge
