1—Fossa has only recorded slow times on the all weather including this course at this distance and may really need a longer trip to show its best, so not for me in this race.
2—Indus Valley hasnt any form from this course but doesn't come out top on its times from Lingfield or Kempton which use the same surface so another that im leaving alone.
3—Daring Dragon wouldn't come top on its Kempton time but its time over this course and distance last time it ran and won was quite fast and would make it the top rated so has to be considered as the most likely winner.
4—Ben Hall has no form at this course but did do a good time at Lingfield and if it can carry that time to this course it has to be one to consider and is one of only two horses that have been known to lead but is out in stall eight.
5—Bubbly Bailey has no form here but did the top rated from the Kempton times and another possible front runner but im not sure if it will get an easy lead and may find this trip too far in a really fast run race but has to be considered from its draw in stall three.
6—Foxford has only recorded slow times at both Lingfield and Kempton plus the fact it might need further puts me off this one.
7—Ryan Style recorded a slow time at Lingfield and may need further to show its best so not for me in this race.
8—Gladsome recorded a decent time at this course and distance which would make it my second top and it usually tracks the leaders so could have place chances.
9—Man Of Music recorded a very slow time at Kempton and nothing in relative times to these at Lingfield and another that may need further so another I would leave alone.
SUMMARY: Both of the possible leaders have the best times at the other two courses that use this surface so both Ben Hall 4/1 and Bubbly Bailey 9/1 cant be discarded easily as they havnt run at this course and distance before but if they adapt to it who knows how well they can do, Gladsome did a decent time at this course and distance and could have place claims. Top spot goes to DARING DRAGON 7/1 who won last time out but this ones time at Kempton isn't as good as Bubbly Baileys but I will be going with the selection but stakes will be low but I do think that the winner will come from either the two front runners or the selection.
Daring Dragon 7/1 3rd
