summary


The reality is that not much makes appeal in this event. DRAGON WARRIOR is clearly in a very good vein of form at the moment and considering he has won over the course and distance recently, he is easier to make a positive case for than most. He should get a good run as well from barrier 6 and the pace to suit. The form of ENJOYABLE SUCCESS was decent enough prior to his last run on the all-weather and although he is yet to win a race locally, he might be one to consider. Zac Purton gets back aboard him and he could aim to make a move when other riders aren’t expecting one in order to ‘steal’ the race. GOLDEN CANNON was posting some pretty good performances by the standard for this grade and he deserves another chance from a better barrier tonight. In a thin race, WHAMPOA STAR has predominantly run on the all-weather but his last run on that surface rated okay and with the drop in grade he might run well and surprise at decent odds. You would need a good price to back him though. This is a race where I suggest you sit out or play small.

speed


There should be some reasonable speed here with GOBI STORM, COME ON WONGCHOY and MEGATRON all candidates for pushing forward early. AMAZING GOLD maps to get an economical run from WHAMPOA STAR.
