summary


This race is wide open and is one that I’m not overly keen on playing into, especially without a firmer price read. The drop in grade and claim will help GRAND CHANCELLOR who has posted the best figures of any runner in this line up recently. If he gets a half-decent run from the barrier then he will go close to winning. TIANCHI MONSTER’S form is hard to knock, but then again he has had good runs when saluting and he will need another good ride to win again. He won’t have to do any work from barrier 1 and that is a positive. DYNAMIC EAGLE had clear excuses when badly checked last time and if they revert to riding him patiently then he might be good enough to win again. VINCY didn’t rate as well when ridden prominently at his last outing, but the pace was strong enough so he may have had an excuse, even though the leader won. HAPPY SEBRING has the talent but isn’t an easy ride, but he too can get into the finish following at least an even tempo. I won’t be recommending a play here, but you wish to, then use my prices accordingly.

TRAVEL FIRST can set the speed here but the tempo overall might be on the SLOW side of GOOD. GLORIOUS DRAGON and CLASSIC BEAUTY can attain handy positions from VINCHY and TIANCHI MONSTER.
