R8 ARSENAL HANDICAP

Happy Valley (M52) - Wednesday, 6 March 2019

summary


There’s a stack of speed in this event and it should be truly run. It is difficult to be confident but I think that SUPER TURBO and STORM SIGNAL are both worth monitoring in the market as a result of this. Super Turbo was excellent when storming home at Happy Valley last time and produced the fourth-best final-400m (22.77) at the meeting. The blinkers go on and he looks ready to win. Storm Signal and HINCHINLOVE come through the same form race with Storm Signal unlucky not to have won but for some significant interference. COUNTRY STAR is hard to fault, he maps nicely and will be a big chance to win again but a three-year-old conceding weight to all is a difficult task. MUSIC ADDITION has posted some big numbers to win his last two starts impressively. Talking of impressive wins, I’m just not quite sure what to make of SPEED VISION’S last win? He smashed the clock in the standout race of the night. He seems better when he can lead at a high speed and tonight he will have only 49kg on his back. If he got to the lead and repeated his last run then he’ll win again. Whether he can repeat is a significant question but on face value he’s on top. A tough race as the pace will suit Super Turbo and Storm Signal, but their chances are still dependent on Speed Vision, both with tactics and if he can repeat the new level he set last time. Play with small units here around 12, 3 and 7.

There should be decent speed here with SPEED VISION, HANDSOME BO BO and MUSIC ADDITION competing for the lead. COUNTRY STAR can map well from STORM SIGNAL.
