Verdict

We'll take a chance on bottom weight DUAISEOIR for Venetia Williams. The ex-Jim Bolger inmate showed up well on his penultimate start when runner-up at Windsor and boasts some respectable handicap form in Ireland. Any rain that falls on the Roodeye would augment his chance further. Kiama Bay is interesting now relegated to a lower grade but English Summer is more effective these days on an artificial surface. Sir Boss was a shock Kempton winner recently but there has to be a question mark about whether he can repeat the trick on Turf and Pintrada looks a much bigger danger to the selection. Steadily improving this term, he ran really well last time when a close second to Fennell Bay at Thirsk.
