R2 STAUNTON HANDICAP

Class 4 - 1200m


Happy Valley (M76) - Wednesday, 3 June 2020

summary


There are some moderate Class 4 gallopers entered here, but one of the more consistent of those is ALL BEST FRIENDS, who wasn’t given the best ride last time when runner up to Loriz. He should have had the winners’ run and that proved a costly decision by the rider Teetan. All Best Friends maps to get the right run tonight and be in position to notch another win. But given the lack of depth and fact we are racing with the rail in the true position, it might be a good race for SUPER WINNER, who has been very weak late in his races overall. However, if he rolls to the top and leads, and can pinch a break around the turn, then his best form is good enough for him to go close, especially if the track pattern favours him. However, Alfie Chan is booked to ride him, so with the apprentice on board you would need to factor that into the price you take. HAPPY TANGO will get a soft run from the low draw and probably gets a similar run to what he did two starts back, which would give him claims. AMBITIOUS HEART and HOME MADE also can figure, in an open and even race that is hard to find much of an edge.

speed


SUPER WINNER can work across to lead if ridden with positive and decisive intent, from SUPER ALLIANCES and SPACE. The pace should be GOOD. ROSSE SCARPE can settle just behind the main pace from ALL BEST FRIENDS.
