R7 COTTON TREE HANDICAP

summary


The blinkers go on GOLDEN DASH who won two of four starts last season and his pre-season turf trial suggested he is ready to perform well first-up. He likes the straight course and can win again given natural improvement off already established ratings. TURF SPRINT went well in his trial but drawn low is far from ideal even though a small field possibly makes it less significant. GOKO has run the quinella in three of four starts over the course and distance and he must be kept safe, while NICE FANDANGO has plenty of speed and with a light weight could take some catching. Overall though it’s an uninspiring event, with only a small outlay recommended on Golden Dash if better than 2/1.
