summary


A horse from my Sweet In Defeat files resumes after returning with blood in the trachea last start, SMART CHARADE. His run prior to that was an eye-catching second to King Opie when he made excellent ground against the pattern of the race. He’s drawn to get an ideal sit behind the leaders. SUNNY POWER has trialed well in preparation for his seasonal return. He’s got good upside about him and his win last term rated well enough for this race, which lacks depth. EMPIRE STAR is the only other runner that I’m happy to consider. Where he maps isn’t ideal, however he might be able to take closer order up in distance and jumping from barrier 5. There is a good chance that Smart Charade goes out bigger in the market than he should be on the back of his last fail, which I am willing to forgive, and that being the case he is worth a play.

speed


Another race where I don’t expect there to be much speed. CHEERFUL BOY can lead with SMART CHARADE able to sit in the trail. FLYING LOVER could work across to sit outside of the leader from a wide draw.
