Verdict

Excellent Team hasn't been finding much for pressure in maiden company and may be worth opposing on his handicap debut while it's more than two years since Walden Prince last ran over the smaller obstacles. EMPTY THE TANK was in good form around this time last year and, despite a break, should be ready for this. He can reverse Ludlow running in October with Grams And Ounces with the booking of Richard Johnson a plus. Itsnowcato is capable on his day but hard to predict and Satanic Beat is well below par at present.
