I think the pacemaker in this race will be Hay Chewed from stall four who is my fifth top fastest, in joint third spot is Double Up stall two and Ziggy Lee who will need some luck from stall twelve, Line Of Reason is in second spot and this one can either be held up or track the leaders but top on my figures is ORNATE 8/1 a three-year-old who has been running well and was tried in Listed and Group races so this level should be within its range and only the stall eleven draw put a dampener on my confidence but it can lead or be held up and I'm hoping it can get away quick enough to either get straight to the front or contest the lead one horse's width away from the rails and this selection is from a stable that's on fire lately,
Vale Of Light no course form, ok time at Chelmsford, no bet or lay, Frank The Barber slow times course and distance versatile running styles, Pushkin Museum maybe too short and a lay for me, Ask The Guru possible front runner and my top rated, Sacred Heart likes to lead maybe not possible here prefers further and possible lay, Zipedeedodah could contest lead but not as fast so far this year and second top on last year's figures, Red Flute another possible front runner, stall seven not helping cause but third top rated, Freds Filly still a maiden may need further a lay to me, Ryan Style maybe too short in trip and slow times course and distance maybe a lay,
SUMMARY: Hope that ASK THE GURU 7/1 can get to the front and then prove hard to catch but a poor race and keep stakes low.
FFOS LAS 6.25
Equally Fast a possible front runner and fourth top rated so maybe place claims, Doc Sportello only had three runs abroad may prefer slower surface or its a danger so no bet or lay, Pensax Lad usually held up or tracks the leaders, not in my top four, Swirral Edge races prominently and my third top rated, Satchville Flyer may find this trip too short and will race prominently unless getting outpaced, Nocturn also races to the fore and second on my figures, HEAD SPACE 6/1 is my top rated and either race in a hold up or track the leader style, Maymyo has poor recent form and may want further so a lay, Bapak Bangsawan may prefer a slower surface and a lay in my eyes if the going is good to firm.
SUMMARY: Not a race to be betting too heavily in but iI'mhoping it's worth a small wager but I'm not even sure where the early pace will come from but it has got about 5 pounds in hand on my figures if it runs to its best.
