Verdict

Overafrica may do better now tackling fences but similar remarks apply to TUTCHEC, who was second over timber here in March. Nicky Richards five-year-old gets a tentative vote as he is very lightly raced. Ros Castle is also interesting as he won over hurdles on soft ground in January and had probably gone over the top when pulled up at Perth in April while there should be more to come from Brave Spartacus. Angel Sun was second over 2m2f behind easy winner Mwaleshi over hurdles here last time and is preferred to William Money and Legbeforewicket of the remainder.
