Three 5f Tapeta wins since last spring, most recently when prevailing by a neck in basement-grade classified race over C&D last month (visor refitted); has more on his plate in this handicap, though, and others appeal more.

Unplaced in three runs in this grade in 2024 but his effort at Newcastle last time, where he travelled strongly but saw no daylight, hinted that he isn't a lost cause; rider's claim is a bonus and this is a poor race, even by 0-50 standards; one of two runners on the card for Linda Perratt (just three runners here before, one a 22-1 winner and the other two placed).
