Verdict

MWALESHI is a cut above these over the smaller obstacles. He landed a Grade 2 novices' event at Kelso back in March and the half-brother brother to winning chaser Crossbow Creek can open his account over fences at the first time of asking. Supreme Asset is out of the family of Albertas Run and should give a good account ahead of the modest hurdlers Imjoeking and Phase Shift. Jimmie Brown is the only one with experience of fences though it wasn't a memorable one as he finished tailed off at Kelso.
