summary


This is not a straightforward race down the straight with seven first starters and some pretty ordinary form from those that have been seen on the racetrack. NICE FANDANGO is a leading chance off his best performances and he has the cross-noseband on for the first time. Purton takes the reins and he is drawn the right side of the track. MULTIMILLION has looked okay at the trials. He ran second down the straight to Big Party who although disappointed on debut as a beaten favourite, still raced with credit. Multimillion won a dirt trial subsequent to that. LIGHTNING STEED is very unreliable but at his best could win. He’s drawn the grandstand rail, which doesn’t look as “hot” as previous seasons, but still looks okay. HAPPY WARRIOR looks like he’ll be worth a speck at odds. His two AWT trails in preparation for this have only been a “pass”, however this race isn’t strong and his figures last season hinted at enough ability for him to cause an upset. Happy Warrior will also wear cheek-pieces for the first time, which could sharpen him up a touch.
