1—Zebs Lad a three-year-old that is my top rating although the distance is pushing its stamina to the limit but is a hold-up type and probably destined to be a better class in the future.
2—Presto Boy another three-year-old and its my second top rated and ought to make the frame as I have it marked down as a possibly hidden danger.
3—First Rebellion is the only known front runner in the field and stall two will help its cause and is my fourth top rated and could improve a little with an uncontested lead.
4—Bold Max is my third top rated and a hold-up type of horse but has got the worst of the draw in stall thirteen and may get taken too wide when trying to challenge.
5—Grey Destiny has only produced slow times elsewhere and may need a longer trip to show its best. 6—Opportuna another three-year-old who hasn't shown very much and also may prefer a longer distance to show its best.
7—Misu Pete is a three-year-old that I've marked down as a maybe hidden danger, but its times from other tracks is slow so maybe not this race.
8—Compton Prince is my joint fourth top rated but its maybe a better horse over five furlongs and will need to be held up but its not my idea of the winner.
9—Molivias Lad hasn't shown much worthwhile form and I think it would be better on a slower surface.
10—Laughing Rock has run thirteen times on the all-weather without winning, but hasn't run at this course with the new surface but its not for me here.
11—Tax Reform hasn't any course form but has run twenty-four times and is still a maiden enough said I think.
12—Hazel Blue has got the best draw in stall one but I think it will need further to show its best and maybe won't be quick enough early in the race to exploit its good draw.
13—Go Charlie another one with no course form but it looks to me like its a better horse over five furlongs so I can't see it being its day to win.
SUMMARY: My top three are quite a few spots ahead of the rest and that's where I'll concentrate my analysis, Bold Max is my third best and like the selections a hold up type, second top is PRESTO BOY 13/2 who can be held up or track the leaders whilst my top spot is ZEBS LAD 8/1 both of these are three-year-olds that could have some improvement still to come, its an apprentices race and neither jockey has ridden for the stables before so that doesn't help my analysis, but I think a small bet on both ought to bring a profit.
Zeb's Lad 8/1 1st
Presto Boy 13/2 7th
