Verdict

Not many of these make much appeal. The Flying Spur would have major claims on his run here earlier this year, while Yeah Man is certainly interesting on his chase form. The selection though is SLANE HILL (nap) who will be suited by the step up in trip if he can jump a bit better. [Justin O’Hanlon]
