summary


This is a typically competitive all-weather event and one that should be truly run with plenty of early pace. That might set it up nicely for GOLDIE FLANKER, but he will need a track that is conducive to those being able to make ground from off the rail. He comes through the same form line as AMAZING STAR, PHANTOM FALCON and HARBOUR ALERT (Race 413). Amazing Star (SID) was excellent in defeat considering he was pressured all the way in that race. If for some reason he gets a better run in transit then he will go close. It doesn’t look likely that he’ll get his own way, but all it takes is a key player to stay out of a speed duel and then the shape of the race can change completely. GAMEPLAYER EMPEROR beat JOYFUL MOMENTS and TEAM FORTUNE last time and his record on the surface is sound. However, this is a tough race with several chances and it’s hard to be overly confident on one – use my prices accordingly. My ‘soft’ leaning is towards Goldie Flanker and Amazing Star.

There looks like there will be a strong tempo here with AMAZING STAR and PHANTOM FALCON the main protagonists from SPEEDY KING and WINNING SUPREME. HARBOUR ALERT also has speed that might be used from barrier 12.
