summary


The best form lines leading in to this event are around GOLDEN FOUR when he was successful in defeating ROYAL RACER (Race 317). Golden Four maps to sit a touch closer to the leaders on this occasion and he seems quite leniently treated in the handicap with a 5-point penalty. Royal Racer can also settle a touch closer and he too warrants some respect – he certainly won’t go out the massive price he did at his last start. The query runner is SAM’S LOVE, who in the past has proven very costly for win-backers but is more often than not very competitive in this grade. He probably needed to draw better and will certainly need a good ride, but if things fall in to place then he can win. HIGH REV has shown some potential but from the outside draw has a tough task. He’ll likely get back, be wide and have a tough task running past them all given that I don’t expect the tempo to be that strong overall.

speed


There isn’t much speed on paper here with POSITIVELY HIGH working forward early to lead from MONEYMORE and COMPASSION STAR. VITAL SPRING might find a good position close to the pace with GREEN CARD another go-forward type.
