summary


LITTLE WISE MAN is clearly the best horse in this field, with both career runs proving rock solid, but unfortunately he has drawn poorly again in barrier 11. He might-well overcome the wide gate and is the horse to beat, but as per it becomes a point of ‘what price to take’? There should be good speed in this event that will help and hopefully he can ‘beat the draw’. JOLLY CONVERGENCE just had him covered last start (race 490) and I can’t see a repeat being overly likely, although it was a decent run by the former and he clearly likes this course and distance. KHAKI hasn’t quite recaptured his form from earlier this season but then again he was three-wide without cover last time and actually kept on very well. With a softer run here, he will run a lot better and his best efforts could even see him win with some luck finding a good spot in the running. PRECIOUS SWEETIE battled well last start after covering ground and he might strip a touch fitter for that run too. SUPER JUNIOR is also a horse with reasonable enough chances. He will strip fitter for his only run this season where he faded in to eighth behind Oriental Elite. Then he peaked on his run somewhat around the 150m mark. GOUTEN OF GARO finished third in the same event, but he looks a deadset non-winner with Joao Moreira needing to produce some magic… which of course he is known to do! I’m keen on Little Wise Man here, but only at the right price.

speed


There appears to be genuine speed here with EXCEPTIONAL DESIRE leading from SUPER JUNIOR and FLYING GODSPELL. PERFECT BUDDY maps to get a perfect run off the speed from GOUTEN OF GARO and SUPER MODEL.
