Storm Lightning can either be held up or track the leaders and is my joint second top rated so has place claims. All Or Nothing prefers to track the early pace but he may find this trip too short but has no form at the distance. New Decade may find this trip too short so will probably try to stay near the early pace but I think it would prefer a slower surface. Welease Bwian can either be held up or track the early pace but only comes out fourth on my figures and is held by the top weight on recent form. Billy Red is
my other joint second top rated horse. It can either track the leaders or even lead itself so must have at least place claims. Picansort is usually held up or can track the pace but has only produced slow times at the distance on good to firm going. DORBACK is my top rated and should be one of the two possible leaders and hopefully will hold them all at bay. Pharoh Jake usually tracks the pace but has only produced slow times at the distance on good to firm and is essentially an all weather horse.
SUMMARY: I expect Billy Red and DORBACK 4/1 to contest for the lead and they are my top two rated so it could be close but I hope Adam Kirby can prove the strongest close home.
