TETH finally showed some improvement for her slide down the weights when runner-up over track and trip last time. She looks set to losing her maiden tag with a similar effort. Total Obsession made a bold bid to follow up her course and distance win last week when beaten a length in fourth and Boyzee is the least exposed as he makes his handicap debut. The remainder are harder to fancy unless Beauchamp Xerxes suddenly finds his form having plummeted down the weights in the last year.
