summary


I see the two main chances in race 2 as being MULTIMAX and EXPONENTS. The former drops in to this grade, can go forward and with his tactical speed can offset the wide draw that he has to jump from. In addition, Multimax will certainly find this an easier test dropping into Class 5 for the first time and was running okay in the higher grade. Exponents can win this race if he runs up to his last performance that rated far superior to anything he had done prior. Can he do it again is the major question? Outside of those two, LAUGH OUT LOUD has found a race win late in the season before and once again this is the easiest test he has ever faced. CREME BRULEE might have a little more upside than most, but ultimately is still a maiden after nine starts, but gets no better opportunity to turn his form around, while Superior Boy can hit the frame but might be shorter odds than he should be.

MULTIMAX can work across from a wide barrier to lead this event at a GOOD speed overall. EXPONENTS and OTOUTO are drawn to get economical runs close to the lead with CRÈME BRULEE.
