Verdict

On Alberts Head has been a beaten favourite five times in succession and has been raised 9lb, though his one and only win came when 3lb higher in May of last year. MATHAYUS ran his best race so far when only headed approaching the last here in August. On that evidence, this slight drop in distance should suit and Sue Smith’s novice is preferred to last month’s Perth winner Apachee Prince, who is 7lb higher, and Fit For Fifty, who hasn’t raced since third at Carlisle in May.
