Verdict

Strandfield Lady began last season on a mark of 61 and had to drop to 47 before losing her maiden tag over 1m3f here in October. She's 3lbs higher now but again ran well on the track on her final start of the campaign. CHAPARRO was involved in that ultra-tight finish here in which Force Of Habit just prevailed over he and stablemate Murtagh. A big run from the latter in the first division of this will give an indication to his chances here. Not To Know has been hurdling without too much success and would probably prefer a longer trip, a remark that also applies to Aliceaneileen, who is still a maiden after 19 starts but has dropped to a fair mark as a consequence.
