1— Tom Sawyer usually likes to track the early pace but may need the run after being off course for one-hundred-and-sixty days and isn't in my top four ratings.
2— Maylasian Boleh this horse has been running over longer distances and some of those times are very good but I'm not sure if it will be able to match some of these for early pace but I certainly couldn't dismiss its chances.
3— Vincetti is one of only two known front runners in the field but is naught from six from its previous all-weather runs and I'm not sure it will be quick enough to lead here.
4— Triple Dream has no form on this new surface but its best time recorded at Kemptom wouldn't put it in my top two so I'll be leaving it alone and keeping a watching brief.
5— Pearl Noir is the second horse that has led before and won last time out when leading all the way at this distance but at Kempton but its time from this course only makes it third on my ratings.
6— Mukaynis may find this trip too short but it still comes out second on my figures. This horse can be held up but I think it will need to be fairly close to the leaders to have its best chance but has won over this course and distance with the selection two lengths back in third. However, the selection didn't have a clear run that day and could turn the form around on seven pounds better terms.
7— Bapak Bangsawan has run on this surface once before where it was last of the twelve and may prefer a different surface to show its best and not for me.
8— Arctic Lynx is my top rated and can track the leaders or be held up. How fast they go in front could determine its tactics today but with no clear run behind Mukaynis it ought to turn things around on these revised terms and with better luck in running.
SUMMARY: Form-wise over this course and distance it concerns three horses: Pearl Noir, who could quite easily lead here and is my third top rated, Mukaynis, second top rated, may not confirm its for me with the selection ARCTIC LYNX 8/1. Maylasian Boleh is the only other horse I couldn't dismiss even though I think this trip might be too short . All the ifs and buts makes it a race to keep stakes low and at the price it maybe worth an each-way bet.
Arctic Lynx 8/1 1st
