Verdict

Not many of these appeal as winners waiting to happen. Man In Black has gone up for finishing second last time but is still respected, while Rakaia Rosa has winning form at this track, albeit in a three-runner race. It may be worth taking a chance on BUCKONTUPENCE, who had reasonable form over hurdles before suffering a form slump and, as a winning point-to-pointer, could be much better suited to this game. Dontminddboys is not out of it despite his recent form figures.
  1. Buckontupence
  2. Man In Black
  3. Rakaia Rosa
