summary


The benefit of a run should make all the difference for VICTORY POWER in the fourth event. He maps well and with that little fitness edge against nearly all of his rivals, he will prove hard to beat. Of the runners that sat on the speed last time he fought the best of all and was run over late by a runner who had an optimal trip. MR PICASSO finished second to FANTASTIC FABIO last season (race 790) and each of those two have claims to figure in the finish again. In addition, Mr Picasso seems to deliver his best when first-up (5:2-2-0-1) and there might be enough pace on here that will suit him as well. EMPIRE STAR has been a costly galloper for those who have backed him to win, having started at single-figured odds in nine of his 11 starts last season without success. That strike rate has to be a worry, but on his best form he is good enough, although that has been said many times before!

FANTASTIC FABIO can find the lead here with VICTORY POWER and Purton having the option to try to hold the lead on the rail or take a trailing spot. I’M THE CONQUIST can also come across from his wide draw and AMBITIOUS HEART could find himself handy to the front from barrier three.
