Verdict

Southfield Vic has found one too good in all three starts over fences so far and is looking very one-paced. He may be vulnerable again here as Ballyboker Breeze made a winning start over the larger obstacles at Perth and should have more to offer. Just A Normal Day, who won twice over hurdles, looks a chasing type but so does FORT WORTH and Jonjo O'Neill's charge can build on his staying-on second at Wetherby.
