summary


REFINED TREASURE has posted some figures last season that indicated he could well be a top class sprinter and he looks well-placed in this event, which has a number of newcomers and some very moderate exposed runners. Obviously he improved with racing in his only preparation but he also struck a wet track when he failed on debut and had genuine excuses. The main question for Refined Treasure is that he has had some “vet issues” since his last outing and it’s not easy to know how he’ll cope with raceday pressure, that said, his recent trial was sound work. MY BEGINNER’S LUCK has a decent record over the course and distance and can run well. He’s not drawn great, although the outside bias isn’t as pronounced this season, barrier 1 isn’t ideal. Most of the newcomers look as though they will need the outing, although PLAY TO WIN went okay in his recent turf trial. This is a case of taking the quote about Refined Treasure or not playing potentially if you want to wait and see given the issues he’s had.
