Verdict

This can go to Rebecca Menzies' BUSY STREET, who advertised his well-being when scoring in a pair of jumpers bumpers earlier this year and should be capable of better as a hurdler. He starts life in handicaps from a potentially lenient mark and may be tough to beat. Balranald heads up the dangers back up in trip after running up to his best here last time, ahead of Ottonian.
