summary


This is a very even Class 3 mile contest with not much separating a few horses. UNICRON JEWELLERY was only fair to the line last start (Race 298) and I believe the drop-back in distance is a positive for him. I expect him to be well-positioned again and he looks a worthwhile each way speck. LAST KINGDOM ran against Unicron Jewellery and never settled and faded accordingly. He too should be better back in distance and he should get his chance from the draw to race more tractably with cover. SACRED IBIS has a one-dimensional racing pattern but is capable of running into the finish even though he’s close to being on his mark. COMFORT LIFE is in the same grade, but this shapes as an easier assignment than recent starts. FAMOUS WARRIOR is a frustrating horse for win-backers and I struggle to recommend him even though he’s run some good numbers in defeat.

speed


HIGH VOLATILITY and COMFORT LIFE appear the likely leaders here and I believe that UNICRON JEWELLERY can work across from barrier 7 to secure a perfect run. FAMOUS WARRIOR can trail these runners with SUPER GIANT likely to be sitting in the first five or six.
