Verdict

KISS LIMIT has cut little ice in recent outings but continues to drop in class and his best form should be sufficient to land this claimer. The consistent Press Baron appeals as the chief danger ahead of Accelerant.

Running For Tuition ran well to finish third over track and trip latest and is respected in a tight little contest, but SETTLE DOWN EILEEN finished ahead of that rival when they locked horns in March and the formbook suggests that she is the one to concentrate on. Moon Kitty looks best of the rest.
