summary


There isn’t much pace in this event on paper and that might play in to the hands of the likes of RED WARRIOR and GIANT TURTLE. Red Warrior can sit “leaders back”, will appreciate the move up to 1,800m and looks a great chance to return in the winner’s enclosure. He is a very progressive and promising stayer and with even luck should be very hard to beat. GIANT TURTLE will be well over his true odds and can win this too, albeit he will need a well-rated ride in front. But if Red Warrior finds trouble then Giant Turtle is the type that could capitalise. VICTORY BOYS has been in terrific form this preparation and can run well again at a course that he has won five races. SUPER CHIC was suited by the tempo last time and will find it harder here, but can run well. He doesn’t have much early speed to take a position however has a sharp turn-of-foot that’ll help him get into the finish late.

There’s not an abundance of speed here with GIANT TURTLE the natural leader from PACKING DRAGON. RED WARRIOR can secure a trail and then it’s take your pick the running order thereafter.
