Handicap: Yes

Going: Heavy (Soft in places)

Dica has to be respected, given that the veteran has finished in the first three home in each of his last 10 starts, and he should be in the mix once again. That said, the preference is for PISTOL PARK, who is now 2lb below his last winning mark and his last couple of performances have been encouraging. Ulis De Vassy is not the most reliable of geldings but he is more than capable of going well in a race of this nature.

Kirei on Dica | Tipped at 9/2
In the form of his life at the age of 12, and now moved up the ratings accordingly to his highest ever mark, but still looks as though there could be more to come in this, with Pistol Park looking the main threat. Handy claimer Ross Chapman takes off 3 and it wouldn't surprise in the least if he notches up his 5th win of the season.
