summary


The favourite in the last, RATTAN, has posted some excellent figures at times during his career and his final outing last season when he won was impressive. However, the race worked out perfectly for him and with top weight from the outside draw, this will not be as simple. He is however, headed in the right direction and has an explosive sprint when things pan out right for him. RIVET ran very well in his final outing last term and maps well today. His trial was okay and he might be a better option in the here and now. DRAGON GENERAL was excellent in defeat in a number of runs last campaign and is a good value chance, and decent over. He is a natural back-marker though which is always an issue, however there should be strong pace set here. For Quaddie players, BOMBAY BLITZ and WORLD RECORD need to be included on a ticket where you’re able to take a wider spread. It’s not an “open and shut” event for Rattan.

speed


Overall I expect the speed of this race to be on the FAST side of GOOD. SHAMAL can set up the tempo from BEAUTY SPIRIT and RIVET potentially able to take a trail behind these. CIRCUIT HASSLER and KING GENKI are other horses that can press to race in the first half of the field in the running.
