summary


There looks to be a solid play in this event with CHARITY WINGS. Although he was a spent force late in the race behind Starlit Knight, the pace was genuine in that race, which meant it rated well, and the winner has subsequently performed with credit in a much stronger race. If Charity Wings can hold that form then he should figure in the finish again. GOLDEN KID maps nicely and he comes through a couple of solid races including a second to Smart Baby to runs ago (Race 250). That form reads well for a race of this calibre and he’ll get a ‘soft’ rails run. There were clear excuses for PERFECT TO PLAY when he last competed after settling close enough to a solid pace and he can be somewhat forgiven for weakening like he did. His prior run behind Polymer Luck was sound and that level of performance would give him a decent chance in this event. It is hard to knock the overall form of ALL YOU KNOW. I like the booking of Moreira, but it has been 56 days since his last outing. He generally has been better with a run under the belt.
