R6 WINDICATOR HANDICAP

summary


BLITZING was impressive when scoring on a strong speed two weeks ago over the course and distance and he seems very leniently treated in the handicap. He maps well here and is a deserved favourite. However, he might come up too short, so would-be backers beware! BINGO meets him 5kg better at the weights in this race tonight and that’s enough to make things more interesting. Blitzing has the advantage of an inside draw, but how aggressive will Poon be on Bingo? ROMAN ODYSSEY made the SID file on his last run over 1000m and the step up to 1200m should be beneficial, along with having the Champion jockey on board. He needs a smooth run with top weight and will potentially get that from barrier five and a good amount of speed mapped for him to follow. APPLAUSE has form around several rivals (from race 87) and can figure in the finish. He won’t have as many favours tonight from barrier 11 though, given he sat three-back on the fence from barrier two last start. Blitzing is the horse to beat, but Bingo and Roman Odyssey are worth small win bets given their early prices.

This should be truly run with SUPER EIGHTEEN and BINGO the most likely leaders. BLITZING can secure the trail from PICKEN with PERFECT TO PLAY and ROMAN ODYSSEY naturally settling just in front of midfield from their respective barriers.
