summary


It’s hard to bet into this event with much confidence given there are five runners having their first start. KING’S TROOPER is one of those making his debut and his work and trials have been very good. He was withdrawn from his intended debut but as long as he behaves himself, then he looks a great chance to open his account in the perfect manner. Of the exposed runners, SUNSHINE UNIVERSE was a dominant winner over the course and distance at his last start and whilst he was on the best part of the track, he might have the rail to guide him again. WINNER SUPREME is another that scored over the course and distance on his last outing and he too appears to have a fair amount of upside. TAKINGUFURTHER has shown potential in his work and trials but just might prefer a touch further in time. Overall I don’t have huge confidence in my prices because of the unknowns, so tread warily and use what I have presented as you wish.

It’s not a straightforward map, but I believe WINNNER SUPREME can lead on the grandstand rail from SHINING ACE and TAKINGUFURTHER. BULLISH BROTHER, KING’S TROOPER, CAPTAIN FANTASTIC and WONDER EXPRESS can position close to the leaders.
