summary


This is a pretty open race and there might be a decent value option with WITNESS HUNTER who is unlikely to be overly fancied by the market from the wide draw of 11. Nonetheless, he was incredibly brave when he last competed and eventually overhauled by Not Usual Talent after he tracked a slick tempo. He has enough tactical speed that he might be able to slot in, somewhere on-pace and on the “C+3” course he will take some beating. The drop back in grade is a key plus for GREEN LUCK. His form earlier this season over the course and distance is rock solid and he seemed to move well enough in a recent trial. BIG BANG BONG is going to get a similar run to what he did last time when prevailing and can’t be discounted, while LAST KINGDOM is another with some good figures in recent starts and warrants respect. He’s a decent chance of securing a great in-running position from where he can launch a winning run in the straight. I’m happy to have an each way play on Witness Hunter here.
