summary


DRAGON WARRIOR made the Sweet In Defeat (SID) file on the back of an excellent run in defeat on this surface when the rail bias worked against him. He seems an improved galloper for rookie trainer Jimmy Ting and I’m happy to go with him on top. Outside of Dragon Warrior, frankly it is a minefield. The switch in stables appears to have sparked some improvement with BEST RUNNER who has worked stylishly leading in to this event and he displayed some promise last campaign. RICHCITY FORTUNE has had excuses in defeat his last two starts; in particularly he had to do a lot of work last time. JIMSON THE FAMOUS is one you might want to include for the minors in exotic bets with the drop back in trip not the worst scenario for the American-bred galloper.

This isn’t the most straightforward race to map, with EVER STRONG and RICHCITY FORTUNE two candidates to go forward and contest the lead. BEST RUNNER and PERFECT CHOICE also have some tactical speed with GREAT SON likely to be not too far from them.
