summary


EARTH TRILOGY made my SID files following his last start third and clearly he should have won. The wide gate isn’t ideal but according to my map he might find a spot behind the pace and with even luck can post his first win. I like the booking of Purton and he is a bet. NOT USUAL TALENT covered ground last time and based on that effort he has to be given due respect with a more economical run likely. While UNICRON JEWELLERY was tough enough last time when he was able to win he doesn’t get quite as suitable conditions versus a few others. I DO doesn’t have a to find a great deal and with a light weight and positive ride, he shouldn’t be far away. I’m happy to be on Earth Trilogy though and if you want to monitor prices around Not Usual Talent and I Do then a quinella option with them could be worthwhile.

speed


STARLIT KNIGHT can lead this race, but it’s not an event with too much speed in it. WITNESS HUNTER can go forward also from I DO and XIANG BAI QI. EARTH TRILOGY is drawn barrier 13 but can work across and might be able to find a position with cover in the running line behind the leaders.
