This isn't a great contest but Weybridge Light has an absence to overcome while Overafrica has been disappointing over the last few months. SOLIS kept on well to score over 3m3f at Sedgefield last month, landing a bit of a gamble in the process. His proven stamina could see him edge home in front again on this stiff track, though it would be no surprise to see a better performance from Political Paddy now that the ground has dried out a little.
