summary


The sixth is another all-weather affair, which is quite a good race. There is little doubt that HAPPY TOUR will come up a short-priced favourite based on his five-length romp over the course and distance in early December and he has had two trials since then to keep him ticking over. He is a talented galloper who will take the power of beating. There is, however, quite a bit of pressure in this race. If the track is conducive to those that can swoop, then GOLDIE FLANKER has posted figures good enough to win this. With just 50kg on his back, this all-weather specialist might provide some value; the concern is that he might just get too far out of his ground during the middle stages of the race. GAMEPLAYER EMPEROR and TEAM FORTUNE come through the same form reference and they can fill a minor slot. If the track is suiting those able to race on-pace, then obviously WINNING SUPREME has a claim. There doesn’t appear to be many spoils looking at the early market, so use my prices accordingly to shape your outlays here.
