summary


There’s not much pace in this race. SUN TOUCH and EIGHTY EIGHTY might be able to control the tempo, and they could be hard to run down as a result. Sun Touch continues to hold his form and with a well-measured ride by Dylan Mo can lead all the way. BACK IN BLACK will get a cheap run on the back of the speed and he does love this track and trip. He will be having his first start for David Hall. IRON BOY likes this course and distance and might not be too far back in the run from barrier 2. There’s no doubt he’s a leading chance on his best numbers, however he presents too short in early markets for mine. The claim might also help STARLIGHT, but basically a number of these gallopers are on their mark and who gets the right run will go a long way to determining the winner. I’m happy that Sun Touch should get all favours and is therefore a top each way bet.

speed


SUN TOUCH can lead this race at a GOOD speed overall. There’s no incentive to go too slowly, but of course it would be silly to run too hard! EIGHTY EIGHTY can position close by with PACKING MIRACLE and MERRYGOWIN not far away.
