Verdict

Emperatriz went close over 7f here on her latest start and makes more appeal than Birdy Boy, a previous course and distance winner but badly out of sorts at present. Megamunch arrives in better form and may figure while Mick Dundee landed a double on the Polytrack early in the year but hasn't raced since February. APACHE RISING is also returning from a lay-off but has won four of his five starts on the Fibresand and he gets the nod with an apprentice's allowance further helping his cause.
