SHARP PRACTICE was the subject of plenty of cash here last time but was unable to become competitive at any stage, even allowing for a missed break. But previous efforts had been progressive and she's worth another chance, off a feasible handicap mark, to prove that running all wrong. Wilbury Twist is of interest on this handicap bow but may not represent much in the way of value while Mystic Meg has not beaten a rival the last twice, though both runs came in Listed contests and she should be more at home here. Bubble And Squeak has also been contesting better races and can play a part, despite top weight, with Ghalia Al Thumama also of interest on her first venture into handicaps.
