Verdict

A tricky race to weigh up but VEDETTARIAT is very highly regarded and started his career with an odds-on success at Bellharbour in February. Now with the champion trainer, he'll have come on for the run and looks the one to be on though there are numerous dangers not the least of them Akorakor, who could hardly have won more easily on his debut at Lismore last month. Need To Talk was fancied to make a winning start at Ballinaboola in November and had no trouble doing so while Samson Bill could reward each-way punters after a promising run at Lemonfield a month ago.
