Verdict

Point-to-point winner OTAGO TRAIL ran well for third on his racecourse debut at Warwick. With that experience under his belt, he may have too much for the newcomers and can open his account. Beaufort Boy is a half-brother to the useful winning chaser Klepht and Ollisu Lad is related to a bumper winner. The latter pair are preferred to Toohighforme, but Face To Face hails from the family of the high-class Monsignor and makes most appeal of the debutants.
