1>Clear Praise is a hold-up type and fourth on my figures but the jockey booking looks a negative.
2>Trader Jack likes to track the leaders but this trip may be too short.
3>Royal Aquisition either tracks the leaders or leads. It's poorly drawn to lead but fifth top rated.
4>Pour La Victoire tracks the leaders and my top rated but drawn widest of all.
5>Top Offer either held up or tracks the leaders may need further and not in my top five.
6>Pensax Lad either tracks the leaders or it's held up not in my top five ratings.
7>Dreams Of Glory is a possible front runner drawn in stall two but not in my top five.
8> Welease Bwian could lead but drawn eight it's my second top rated.
9>Pearl Noir could lead drawn stall one and could be a slightly hidden danger.
10>Give Us A Belle is third top rated usually tracks the early pace.
SUMMARY: This could be a fast pace but the best of the front runners, Royal Aquisition. has stall but only my fifth top rated. This is most likely won by a hold up or track leader type so I'm going with my top rated POUR LA VICTOIRE 3/1 to win from stall ten. It could follow the likely leader and attain a good early position, staying on strongest. The biggest danger would seem to be Welease Bwian, but this one isn't a big enough price to put up as an each-way alternative.
1>Black Dave may find this trip too short and is usually held up or tracks the leaders.
2>Reginald Claude is a hold-up type and my fourth top rated.
3>Compton Prince is my second top rated and is either held up or tracks the early pace.
4>Bookmaker isn't in my top three but can be held up or track the front runners.
5>Spowarticus can lead or track the leaders but isn't in my top three.
6>Volito is a hold-up type but is my top rated but not by much.
7>Swendab is none from ten runs on the all-weather and could use any race tactics including leading.
8>Encapsulated is zero from seven on the all-weather and can be held up or track the pace.
SUMMARY: Two possible leaders but neither in my top three. But I think it could be between Compton Prince and the top rated VOLITO 12/1 as there's very little between them and are quite a few spots ahead of the third top rating but I always go with the top rated.
