summary


The opening event is a Griffin race and one I won’t be betting into. From what I’ve seen of these horses at the trials AETHERO looks the horse to beat. That said he is very new to it all and has only trialed once since joining the Moore stable routine in the middle of January. In his trial he was allowed to find his feet before quickening very nicely when asked by Purton. He might be a class above them, but ultimately he’s a two-year-old on debut off a limited prep. WINNING METHOD has shown more natural early speed in his trials and is the horse to challenge Aethero. Of the others GALA NIGHT trialed against Winning Method and whilst he showed up early and wasn’t pushed late, he looked to be well-covered by Winning Method.

speed


WINNING METHOD can lead here at a sedate pace overall. REWARDING SHINE and GALA NIGHT should be able to sit close up in the early stages of proceedings at least.
