Verdict

GREENANDWHITEARMY looked a likely winner when fluffing his lines at the last flight at Downpatrick last time out. With better concentration he holds every chance and is the selection in this interesting contest. The winner of that contest was Balgowlah and while saddled with more weight, he is a consistent sort who should run his race. The saddle slipped on Drumconnor Girl last time out at Downpatrick and is better judged on a useful performance at the same track on her previous start. A repeat of that effort would make her an interesting proposition.
  1. Greenandwhitearmy
  2. Balgowlah
  3. Drumconnor Girl
