summary


STYLING CITY is a deserved favourite and will be hard to beat in this event. He has been impressive his last two wins over the course and distance and doesn’t really have to improve much to win again, as he drops 5kg in weight. However, this is no walkover. It’s a race with a lot of pressure in the map and could therefore suit a horse that can sit comfortably behind the main speed. LEAN PERFECTION falls into this category and will improve on a firmer surface and a patient ride. He is one from one over the course and distance, went too hard on-pace last time on a wet track and was very good on a biased all-weather track prior to that. I’m happy to bet him. BRAVO WATCHMAN was game behind Wishful Thinker at his last outing, which rated well enough to win your average C2 race over this trip. This race should be covered with the three horses discussed here.

The pace will be on here with CALIFRONIA FORTUNE, MR LUMIERES, STYLING CITY and MOMENT OF POWER all fast. BRAVO WATCHMAN also has speed and BALTIC WHISPER can run along. LEAN PERFECTION sits nicely given the race shape.
