summary


This looks to potentially be a “two-play” race, or if you prefer backing only one horse in a small field then an each way on DYNAMIC EAGLE. The horse was excellent second-up over 1800m and should appreciate the move up in distance tonight. Dynamic Eagle beat home BRAVE LEGEND at their last meeting and maps to get a nice run on the back of the main speed. If he gets a clear run at the right time, as he will need to build momentum, then he can go well. Brave Legend backs up from last week when he ran straight in to a dead end, but has always left the impression this distance will suit. He also needs “tempo favours” given his race pattern, but a small field should mitigate some of those issues. GIANT TURTLE will probably try and control the tempo and warrants respect too. The apprentice allowance will really aid his chances, as he otherwise appears to be right on his mark.

speed


GIANT TURTLE is the logical leader here and overall I don’t expect there to be much speed in the first half of the race. Stablemate CLOUD NINE might sit just off Giant Turtle with DYNAMIC EAGLE tracking these two.
