Verdict

In what looks a competitive beginners chase victory can go the way of ANY SECOND NOW who should appreciate the forecast soft-to-heavy ground on his chasing debut for trainer Ted Walsh. The selection was a debut winner over fences and can repeat that now sent chasing with Grade 3 winning hurdler Monalee taken to chase him home ahead of Invitation Only who would probably prefer the ground quicker than is forecast today.
