Verdict

OXWICH BAY had a thankless task conceding lumps of weight to a well-handicapped rival at Taunton 17 days ago. He was no match for the winner but came home a long way clear of the remainder and, from 1lb lower, can go a place better now. Chase debutants Bathiva and Demopolis could well be the ones to give him most to think about.
