Verdict

Bondi Beach Boy has won three of his last four and was impressive at Beverley last time though the assessor has hit him with a 10lb rise. OIL STRIKE looked in very good shape at Beverley on Monday so it's no surprise to see him turn out with a penalty and he can go in again. Swendab has been beaten a total of less than a length in his three latest starts and though climbing the weights without winning looks certain to get into the picture under Luke Leadbitter, who won a big handicap at the Curragh over the weekend. Holy Angel continues to go well without quite getting there and is another who has been climbing the weights without winning.
