summary


DEAL MAKER is the horse to beat here. He was close enough to a fast speed at his last start and he actually battled on very well. There doesn’t look like there’ll be much pressure at all in this event, which should suit him from a low draw and he maps nicely. REMARKABLE ran over the top of him the last time they clashed and he is capable of figuring in the finish once again. The form out of that race (446) stands up relatively well with the winner, Chung Wah Spirit saluting again. TRAVEL FIRST has been running better than it looks on paper and although well held in recent starts, those runs have rated well enough for him to be competitive in this event. In addition, he might be able to control the speed as he did earlier this season over the course and distance and he should be kept safe. TENNESSEE BOSS looks the best of the rest, and he deserves another chance after failing last time on the sloppy surface. There doesn’t look to be much of an advantage to be had over the market, with Deal Maker the on top selection and win play.

TRAVEL FIRST looks as though he is going to be able to lead this race at his leisure and at a SLOW speed. DEAL MAKER can trail with ENFOLDING close up. REMARKABLE might be able to secure a nice spot in front of midfield.
