Verdict

The eye is immediately drawn to the twice-raced LODE THE GOLD in this claimer and although he cannot boast the experience of his rivals, the unbeaten four-year-old makes plenty of appeal as the unexposed quantity in the field who is open to plenty of improvement. If the selection falters third time up, the likes of My Majesty and Mt. Leinster will be there to pounce.

Verdict

PERFECT PARADISE has been banging hard on the door in similar claimers of late and could be let in here. Connections have found their mare a good opening in what isn't the strongest of heats and she can get the better of Big Alice and Fog Happens.
