summary


I can’t play in this race with any confidence with two newcomers combined with a map that’s very difficult to work out. I really can’t get a grip on how this race will be run. Arguably, INTREPIC maps well and his best runs from last campaign were good enough to win this event. Being down in class with an apprentice allowance is a positive combination Super Star is a newcomer who has moved quite well in a recent trial and he might not need to be anything special to figure in the finish. The manner in which Flying Noble closed on the all weather last time was encouraging, but the race didn’t rate anything special. Looking Good can turn it around with a more patient ride. He ran well below his efforts last preparation where he performed consistently, so he might be able to bounce back.

I don’t have a great deal of confidence in my map here. HONG KONG’S FOLKS might be asked to lead. BORNTOACHIEVE and MONEYMORE could be encouraged to do the same.
