In a race that lacks a standout candidate the marginal preference is for BRANDED HAND, who was successful when last tried in this grade. Texas Zip and Hanno could prove to be the main threats.

Winner of five races at 1m on good ground. Finished 4l behind Sweet Soul Music when fifth of 9 at 11-1 on his latest outing at Monmouth Park over 1m (good) last month. Should not be underestimated.

Hanno
Angel Rodriguez/Jack Fisher
Age: 7
Weight: 8-7
Spotlight Form: 30848/5-
SP
A winner at 1m on soft ground, but that win was over three years ago. Finished behind Mutin when fifth of 9 at 14-1 on his latest outing at Philadelphia Park over 2m (good) in July last year. Has been running over jumps since then and he cannot be discounted.

SP
He has won four times at 1m on good ground. Third of 8 behind Papal Law beaten 8l at 14-1 on his latest outing at Penn National over 1m (good) last month. Each-way claims.

He has won four times from 5f to 1m on the all-weather. Finished 11l behind Big Bad Dude when fourth of 6 at 6-4fav on his latest outing at Penn National over 1m earlier this month. Having his first run for a new stable today, previously with Stephen Mick. Cannot be completely discounted.

Age: 10
Weight: 7-0
Spotlight Form: 5176/89-
SP
Winner of five races at 1m on firm and good ground and on the all-weather; has also won a hurdle. Beaten behind Flight Pattern at 55-1 when 9th of 10 on her latest outing at Laurel Park over 1m (good) in October last year. This is a big ask.

He has won three times at 1m on good ground and on the all-weather. Finished 8l behind Bobcat when fourth of 6 at 20-1 on his latest outing at Delaware Park over 7f (good) earlier this month. Best look elsewhere.

A winner at 6f on the all-weather. Finished 4l behind Eskenfortime when sixth of 8 at 22-1 on his latest outing at Penn National over 1m (good) earlier this month. Does not inspire a lot of confidence.
