summary


We’re on to the all-weather track (AWT) for the second event and the two main chances in this race are HOLY UNICORN and KING’S MAN. The former has won three of his last four starts, two on this surface and he his ability to take up the running, which is obviously a major positive. On his last win he proved too strong for Good Fit and Sunshine Universe who have both scored since then (the latter has won twice) and he still seems well-weighted on this occasion. REMARKABLE had excuses in that event (race 335) when badly hampered and he has generally been holding his form well. King’s Man is getting closer to a win and with the booking of Zac Purton he looks easy to make a case for. He should get a ‘soft’ run midfield on the rail and just needs a dirt track that plays fairly. The runner at a bigger value price could be TENNESSEE BOSS who comes from a decent rating race won by Happy Warrior. This is his first try on the surface but he might be worth keeping safe.

speed


There isn’t a great deal of speed on paper here and I expect that HOLY UNICORN and LOTUS BREEZE are the two horses that are likely to set the speed. GOLDEN KID is drawn to get a good run behind these with BRING IT ON close by.
