summary


There looks to be a good bet in this event, GRACIOUS RYDER. Three of his four past runs from last season rate well enough for him to beat this opposition and he has had two trials leading in to tonight’s race. His most recent trial was against top-class opposition (Mr Stunning and Conte) and he was quite impressive behind them. On top of this, he looks to map well. THE CREATETH was good in defeat on his last outing and goes in to this event third-up. He will however, need a touch of luck from a wide gate, as last start he drew well and was given nearly every chance. GOOD COMPANION will likely go forward and if this ageing galloper can find anything extra like a couple of runners that have joined the Jimmy Ting yard then he definitely deserves respect. VERY RICH MAN will find the lead more easily than his previous two starts when he jumped from wide draws, and can run well with an easier time earlier in the race.
