A very very interesting Listed class five furlong sprint with ten runners, with four that have been known to lead and the top six that I have got marked down as possible hidden dangers, mainly because they have no form at this course and distance or the course at all but they have shown good form elsewhere which looks like it might be transferred to this course.
In fact, there's only three horses that have a recorded time for this race, which makes Alben Star my third top rated but this trip is a little bit short for it but there could be a very fast early pace which will certainly help its cause, I've got joint top rated with Lightscameraction who can be held up or track the leaders and being drawn in stall two I think it will try to get a good position on the rail just behind the leaders and Boom The Groom who showed it was in form when winning last time out at this distance and is a possible front runner but that was a class two handicap and its not proven itself as a being able to win a Listed race.
From the point of view from the draw, Abstraction has got stall three and that is the best of the known front runners but it has never won first time out and its been off the racecourse for about eight months, Boom The Groom is next best drawn in stall six, so if this one can either lead or be just behind on the rails or along side the leader it must have a decent chance to at least make the frame.
SUMMARY: A hard race to be too confident with so many possible hidden dangers and first three in the betting are among them but I'm sticking with the proven which means I've only got it down to three and they are all in double figures so backing all three each way and hope for either two of them placed or one of them wins, so its small each way bets on BOOM THE GROOM 16/1, LIGHTSCAMERACTION 12/1 & ALBEN STAR 16/1
Lightscameration 12/1 1st
Alben Star 16/1 Unp
Boom The Groom 16/1 Unp
