Verdict

The solid and consistent, Mick Halford-trained, LADY DE VESCI can land a competitive closer here following a number of promising efforts in the last month at this track. The five-year-old will have plenty of challengers in the shape of Every Breath, Noble Intention and A Few Bob Short, who will look to fill the minor honours.
  1. Lady De Vesci
  2. Every Breath
  3. A Few Bob Short
