Verdict

The final race seems to be between the top two in the weights with the verdict given to DELIGHTFULLY just ahead of Wee Bertie while Vehari must be considered. Lenny Lungo's charges have been in fine fettle this season and Delightfully added to the yard' glory on his penultimate effort over a shorter trip in a seller at Sedgefield. He was almost too bad to be true last time out and he retains a competitive mark to allow him to return to form. Wee Bertie has to concede weight all round and seems to be racing off a mark that is currently just a little too high. It's only five pounds more than his last winning mark but it has so far proved a too bigger burden to bear. Vehari ran with credit on his seasonal debut in bottomless ground last time out. The run marked a vast improvement on his previous starts over hurdles and he'll only need a little more to figure. Tuatara Bay could run a decent race at a value price but Delightfully can delight punters here.
