QUICK TIP: FOIE GRAS 10/1 EW
1>Secret Millionaire can either be held up or track the leaders drawn in stall eight I'm not sure it might get carried wide but its my second top rated so must have place claims.
2>Smidgen is quite versatile concerning its running style and that includes leading if nothing else wants to set the pace but its not in my top six.
3>Gabrials Wawa hasnt got any form on the new Tapeta surface here and I think it will do even better over a longer trip.
4>Dream Scenario is a hold up type of horse so should be staying on at the finish but its only sixth top on my ratings and it might not reach the front in time.
5>Insolenceofoffice usually tracks the leaders and its best time makes it fifth top so I doubt it can win here especially from stall nine.
6>Point North is the other horse in the race that has been known to lead before and its not what I call a natural front runner but can do so if nothing else wants to set the pace but it might not have to lead here, it is my third top rated and could have at least place claims.
7>Noverre To Go can be held up or track the early pace makers but is only seventh on my ratings at this course so its not for me this time.
8>Sewn Up is my fourth top rated and has the prime draw in stall one, it can be held up or track the pace setters and it should be able to get a good early position and could make the frame.
9>Bogsnog is the natural front runner in the field but its best time only puts it fifth in my list but could get an uncontested lead and then some improvement is possible but its not for me today.
10>Foie Gras can be held up or more likely from stall two track the leaders and its my top rated so hopefully can finish the stronger, it won last time out here over course and distance but hasnt stayed the seventh furlong in its last two runs at this course but a reproduction of that last win should be enough to take this race.
SUMMARY: With only Bogsnog being the natural front runner I'm just hoping it sets a fast pace and then I feel the selection FOIE GRAS 10/1 can get a good early position from stall two and finish strongly. At the price it has to worth a small each-way bet.
Foie Gras 10/1 2nd
