GASSIN GOLF has a pair of placed efforts in the Imperial Cup to his credit over this course and distance. He enjoys soft ground, his mark slipping to the lowest it has been for almost four years. His return to action should have blown away the cobwebs, he is too well handicapped to ignore. Our Merlin is a rapid improver, he is massively up in the weights and in class but he gives the impression that he can handle it. Drops Of Jupitor tanked through the contest when winning last time, she is an interesting addition to the handicap ranks.
