Verdict
HUGHIES BAY makes his 50th racecourse appearance here and this looks a fair opportunity to land his first ever success; The ten-year-old showed enough last time at this track over 2m6f to suggest he has the ability to get his head in front. He has run well over course and distance in the past and the poor level of competition here could see him making the headlines. Mattie's Mountain, in contrast, is just starting his career over hurdles. He has shown enough on those outings to believe a win is not too far away. Lucia's Bob faced up well to first time blinkers last time out over this course and if able to reproduce that effort, the mare holds every chance.
