Verdict

Competitive stuff despite the low grade. Weelmeetintheoffice, Aquarian and Thisonesforollie are all on the shortlist. Market support for Juniors Angel on handicap debut with the blinkers on should be noted. Preference is for GREY MOUNTAIN MIST who has been winning off higher marks over fences and can take advantage of the lower hurdles mark.
  1. Grey Mountain Mist
  2. Aquarian
  3. Thisonesforollie
