Verdict

Harare goes so well for Gemma Tutty, the pair having already claimed three successes since early May. However, the admirable veteran has inevitably climbed the weights as a result and preference is for LADY BLUESKY, a useful dual purpose sort for the Whillans operation. A reliable and consistent mare, the nine-year-old is very much at home on ground with cut and will not be inconvenienced should conditions deteriorate. Her latest effort a week ago when runner-up here over half a mile further confirmed her wellbeing and she can go one better. The rest are not in the best of form, of whom Cadgers Brig looks the most appropriate candidate for the shortlist.
