R9 LORD KANALOA HANDICAP

summary


There is a good each way bet in the ninth race, NEW ASIA SUNRISE. He maps to get a nice run on the back of the speed and was a touch unlucky on his last outing when he was caught up in traffic before finishing fifth to key rival RAGING STORM. He meets that galloper 3.5kg better at the weights, is drawn well and with even luck can definitely turn the tables. It appears that John Size might believe Raging Storm is a 1,200m galloper, as he sticks to this trip and a “cold ride” in order to help him finish strongly wouldn’t surprise me. His runs over 1,200m have been his best, and there was still plenty to like about his latest win. LIMITLESS comes through the same form line (race 189), but he isn’t reliable, nonetheless, he can fight out the finish. And if playing a Quaddie, then you must include FAST MOST FURIOUS and VOLPINO who will both be at big odds but have run better than it looks on paper and warrant inclusion. However, this race is all about New Asia Sunrise and I’m having a confident each way outlay on him.

Race 9 is a little tricky to map with BOLD STITCH and NEW ASIA RISING the logical leaders from WINSTON’S LAD. HINCHINLOVE has drawn ideally to get an economical just behind the main speed.
