1—Mia San Triple is a three year old that might prefer a slower surface than this even though it can lead or track the leaders and has done so over seven furlongs but there's several others that might take it on for the lead and it might not have the early speed to stay in contention here.
2—Corparol Maddox can be held up or track the leaders and is fourth on my ratings but may prefer another furlong to show its best so may not catch the leaders in time.
3—Oriental Relation is a three year old that might try to contest the lead and is second best on my figures but can track the pace if its too frantic in front and could still have some improvement to come so should have at least place claims.
4—Dominate is another likely pace setter and is the best drawn of the front runners coming out of stall two but its time only puts it sixth on my figures but could have place claims if others fail to run to their best.
5—Foxtrot Jubilee is another possible pace setter and is my fifth top rated so it does like being a fast run race and isn't badly housed in stall four so another with potential place claims.
6—Secret Witness has got poor recent form and until its last run at Wolverhampton hadn't been raced on the all weather since 2011 but didn't run very well that day so its very hard seeing it suddenly bouncing back to form here.
7—Mishaal has had five runs on the all weather without winning but some of its grass form suggests it could be a potential dark horse and is another possible front runner.
8—Dangerous Age is a hold up type which is what it will need to do here, its best time puts it third on my ratings but it seems to a better horse at five furlongs but could have place claims if it can be held up and those at the front of the field go off to fast and run out of steam.
9—Clockmaker has been in poor form recently but is only seventh on my ratings when at its best but this horse is versatile in its running style including trying to lead.
10—Panther Patrol has produced the best time of the runners in this race and has mirrored the same time at Lingfield, it usually likes to sit behind the leaders and pick up late on, so this race could fall into its lap.
11—Spring Fling is a possible front running three year old but hasn't produced anything of note, time-wise on the all weather yet but could have improvement as it did win on the grass on good to firm ground which this course equates to.
12—Plucky Dip is three years old but it may find this trip too short and its one run over this course and distance was done in a slow time but it can track the pace or be held up so this race could be run to suit it.
SUMMARY: There are a few runners that could improve here but as usual I will go with the proven form and it was in decent form when last seen on the racecourse but it did run into trouble that day so the final placing doesn't show its real merit but PANTHER PATROL 16/1 is well weighted on its best form and im hoping its fit enough to do itself justice and at the price has to be put up as an each way bet.
Panther Patrol 16/1 6th
