Verdict

Adjiram looks to be the pick ahead of Safe Enough. The recent course winner was a disappointment over hurdles but he was allowed to dictate terms over fences and with weak opposition again in opposition, it looks difficult to make a case against him. Safe Enough is a sound enough performer at his level. He is a solid enough conveyance although the ability to handle the ground has to be an imponderable. Acertack has often been backed on the racecourse without too much in the way of success. This is a drop in class for Father Abraham. Sweet Minuet is on chasing debut following a long absence. Adjiram has an obvious opportunity to follow up and gets the verdict.
