summary


There’s some very moderate stock in this event, but upon assessment there might be some value around to be scooped up. AMBITIOUS SPEEDY was quite good over 1,200m at Happy Valley on his last outing when posting a race-best final-200m (11.64) and this afternoon he returns to his preferred course and distance. He doesn’t win out of turn but he will be priced at reasonable value, along with THE SYLPH, about whom much the same can be said. The Sylph sat too close to a strong speed at Happy Valley on his last outing and there were excuses, but the form out of that race looks quite solid. Last start winner FLYING NOBLE is worth considering too as he returns to the same track and trip of his victory four weeks ago, while ROYAL PREROGATIVE has the blinkers re-applied and his early season form reads well-enough to be competitive in this event. It’ll be only his second start for popular South African-trainer Tony Millard and he should be able to secure an economical trip behind the main speed. WINNING CIRCLE might inject a little value in to the exotics, which are destined to pay well in this event if you get it right. I’m happy to have small win outlays on Ambitious Speedy and The Sylph here – nothing large, but they look decent prices.

The speed should be genuine (GOOD) here with RUMINARE one of the leaders with TRIUMPHANT LIGHT and GOBI STORM. BEST EFFORT is drawn wide and might also be asked to race forward with ADONIS and WONDERFUL TIGER slotting in behind these.
