1- Imjin River is my fourth top rated and this may not be its best surface. It's usually held up or tracks the leaders then it needs others to under perform for it to make the frame and has a poor-ish draw in stall nine.
2- Qatar Princess can also be held up or track the early pace its well drawn in stall four to get a good early position and could come home the strongest of them all as its my joint top rated.
3- Prigsnov Dancer is one of the possible leaders and has drawn stall three so could attempt to lead all the way. If it gets an uncontested lead, it could be a hidden danger but it would need to improve to win this but never say never.
4- Under Approval is a track leaders or held up type but it may not really like this surface so wouldn't be on my shortlist for this race.
5- Lazy Sioux has got the prime draw in stall one. It has led a race before and is my joint top rated, if you take off the apprentice riders allowance, it then becomes the clear top rated, if you add the five pounds, because you think the jockeys not worth his claim, then it's second best. The jockey has only ridden twice for the stable without success so its impossible to say one way or the other the affect that five pound will make in the race then add in the fact the horse is still a maiden after nineteen runs it muddies the water even further.
6- Rat Catcher is another horse being ridden by a claimer who has had twenty rides for the stable without winning. He rode this horse eight times as well and been close a few times and is my third top rated so I expect it to be thereabouts. From its stall two draw so a place could easily be in its capabilities but the one win from twenty six races don't enhance its chance of winning and its been introduced into the market as the favourite at 11/4 so bang goes any hope of backing it each-way. I'm afraid there's no way I could back it to win.
7- Rightcar comes out fifth on my ratings despite a couple of things going against it in this race, which just shows how poor the race actually is. It may prefer a slower surface and an extra furlong so it should be staying on at the finish and could make the frame if others falter.
8- Hellolini is another that has been known to lead before but it can also be held up or track the pace and is my seventh best rated so it would take a lot of luck and reliance on others to under perform for this one to even make the frame from stall seven.
9- Forceful Beacon has had eight runs to date and not made even the frame in any of them despite it trying distances from this five furlongs, in which it did its best time to sit sixth in my figures, right up to eight and a half furlongs, so I doubt it can make the frame here.
10- Bond Blade may prefer a different surface and has very little in the way of form since it won a selling race as a three year old four years ago so I think it can easily be omitted.
SUMMARY:The race is muddied with the employment of some claiming jockeys riding but I think the race could concern three horses in view of winning this race, QATAR PRINCESS 4/1 and LAZY SIOUX 6/1 come out the two to consider on my figures but if Lazy Sioux doesn't lead it could help the chances of Prigsnov Dancer 11/2 who then might get an easy lead but isn't a big enough price to make an each way bet worthwhile as usual I will stick to backing my figures so will put both up both of the top rated and suggest doing both to show a profit whichever wins but it wouldn't be a race where I did both at the level stake I would be halving my bet to cover both horses.
Lazy Sioux 6/1 5th
Qatar Princess 4/1 6th
