Verdict

RAINY CITY (NAP) has evidently taken some time to come to hand but connections have seen their patience rewarded with a couple of convincing victories an on ground that suits, he can defy the penalties here. Another Bill was unbeaten in bumpers and though he made harder work of it than his odds implied at Hexham he is sure to have come on for that first outing for six months. John Monash returns to the place where he broke his maiden last month but Sweet Holly has questions to answer after running poorly at Cartmel.
