Verdict

BASSAM rates a strong tip. He should be able to confirm placings with In The Game and has been a winner over the trip. Hidden Agenda is capable of running well while this trip could be a bit far for Var Aglow, and Prospector is an interesting runner although the long losing run is a concern.
