summary


This is an interesting race and there should be some value to be scooped up in this one as well. NABOO STAR was huge in defeat on his last outing after completely blowing the start but still rattling home and posting the best 400m (22.46) and 200m (10.96) at the meeting. Preferably, he jumps on terms, settles midfield and he should prove too good for this field from there. LONDON MASTER might be able to provide some value for the exotics, especially if the pace is genuine up front. He will need decent speed given his racing pattern, which always leaves him at the mercy of others. Of those horses likely to be racing near the front of the field, EVERBRAVE has the best form, but I’m not sure where he ends up from a wide alley? There’s every chance he could be posted wide through out, which would diminish his chances significantly. ROYAL CHOCOLATE is well-weighted and based on his last couple of runs over the course and distance he might be good enough to hit the frame.
