Verdict

BENEFIT OF MAGIC has been solid and consistent since the turn of the year in a number of promising displays bar a run when upped in class which is easily forgiven and likely to be in the shake-up once again here. Gallant veteran Courtncatcher could come on for his first start of the season, Bye Bye O Bye, who looks on a handy mark and the dependable Swingbridge can battle for the place money.
