Race Verdict

It is difficult to look beyond SMALIB MONTERG, who romped to victory at Ffos Las last week and looks well ahead of the handicapper now turned out swiftly under a penalty. The selection's last two victories have come on slow ground, so if conditions prove faster than ideal, recent Stratford scorer Beattie Green could be the one to capitalise. Ton-Chee returns from a 327-day break but is respected in his bid for a track and trip hat-trick (last won a selling handicap in August).

Selection: Smalib Monterg        Danger: Beattie Green        Alternative: Ton-Chee
