R4 VICTORY MARVEL HANDICAP

summary


LIGHTNING STEED steps up to 1200m but his last win down the straight when competing on inferior ground was full of merit. He is lightly-raced and open to more improvement and although he comes around a bend for the first time, the distance rise looks like it will suit him ideally. TOUCH OF LUCK ran well on debut and he too has some upside. From barrier three and given the extra 200m for him he should get a good opportunity to potentially settle just behind the speed before charging home. COMPLACENCY is having his first start with a new stable but he has shown some potential and his recent trial was sound work without being anything special. Depending on the price, FLYING LOVER could be worth a small play in this event alongside LIGHTNING STEED. Flying Lover was caught three-wide without cover on the speed at his last start and it was a race that rated superior to anything his rivals have posted. Lightning Steed is the main play to win here, with an additional “speck” on Touch Of Luck worth considering at the right price.

REGENCY DARLING is capable of leading this race from MASTER VIKING who can work across from a wide draw. FLYING LOVER might also press forward with ALL MY GAIN, LIGHTNING STEED and BEAUT BEAUT. The speed should be at least GOOD.
