Verdict

LA CHIKITA has yet to run a bad race and is entitled to strip fitter for her comeback second last month. She can score possibly at the main expense of One More Fire, who was over a length behind the selection last time, and class-dropper Jazzing Nibbler.

Verdict

WEST COAST INDY lost little in defeat when a length second over 1m last time and he gets the vote to go one better. Wilbon was just a further length back in third that day and should give another good account, while House Of Chance also has place credentials.
