R6 TAMAR HANDICAP

summary


The sixth presents as a competitive race with not much separating the chances and ratings of more than a few runners. IMPECCABLE FELLOW was costly for Hutchi’s Honkers followers last season but there were a number of runs from him that were good enough for him to win this, especially given he can map closer from a low draw. STRATHSPEY will likely find this trip as being on the “sharp side” but perhaps in a fresh state he can get the job done, as he was getting very close to a win at the end of last term. WINNING CONTROLLER maps nicely and should have that residual fitness from the end of season ‘17/’18. One of the more interesting runners is CHEERFUL BOY, who has had a stable change (Freedman to Ting) and delivered solid work in a recent trial. He gets a drop in class and with any luck from the wide gate can run well. BEAUTY DAY is hard to gauge but should be kept safe.

VIVA COUNCIL and CHEERFUL BOY can set the tempo here and it’s likely to be GOOD. WINNING CONTROLLER and BEAUTY DAY map ideally behind them with GORGEOUS AGAIN.
