Verdict

GREENANDWHITEARMY is taken to confirm places with Mr Moondance in a competitive looking contest. The pair finished first and second, split by ¾L over C&D on good ground last month in an impressive performance from both horses who pulled 11L ahead of the nine-runner field. The Noel Kelly-trained Oscar Light looks a big danger following a promising run at this venue last month while top weight, Authorative should not be underestimated.
