summary


This Class 4 over 1,400m appears to have plenty of depth and the form should stack up well out of it. I’m quite keen on Splendour And Gold who caught the eye on his debut when posting the eighth best final 400m (22.44) at the meeting and posted similar figures to the likes of Right Choice who won a C3 on the day. Hopefully the step up to 1,400m will ensure he wont be conceding too much ground and if he can unleash a similar turn of foot then should be hard to beat. Pearl Champion was supremely impressive when scoring over this track and trip when well supported in the market he does look a nice prospect in the making. Win Win finished second to him on that occasion and a case can be made, although he has been beaten since by Care Free Prince. Flame Lily worked far too hard in the lead on his last outing and could improve, with Mr Darthvegar open to some improvement as well. All-in-all, I am expecting the form to stack up well out of this event.

CARE FREE PRINCE and SUPREME WITNESS appear the likely pacesetters here from MARVEL JOY. Overall I expect that the tempo should be GOOD. WIN WIN can secure a rails run not far from the leaders along with SPLENDOUR AND GOLD.
