Picansort may find this trip too far-- Swiss Cross my 4th top rated, its apprentices claim moves it to 3rd spot-- Virile has no surface form so not sure what to expect as I've found no negatives or positives-- Rosie Royce a 3year old who may need further-- Rigolleto a possible pace setter and my 2nd top rated so must have at least a place claim-- Harmony Bay another 3year old that may need further-- Sakhees Jem the 3rd 3year old needing further-- Sonnet and now the 4th with the same needs-- Last Star Falling and the 5th looking for further-- Seek The Fair Land is the 2nd of the possible pace setters and my top rated and then they are using a 5lb claiming jockey to help even more-- Pharoh Jake is my 3rd top rated but looks better over a shorter trip-- Swanton Blue a 3year old but this time this one might prefer a shorter trip-----
SUMMARY: There are two known front-runners in this field of 12 and they are my top two ratings, Rigolleto is in stall 6 while my top rated SEEK THE FAIR LAND 6/1 is in stall 7 and it could also do with a longer trip so it can either lead or at least track the leader and then stay on the stronger at the finish.
Seek the Fair Land 6/1 5th
1:55 Lingfeild - Lady Clair may find this trip too far and prefer a slower surface-- Baddilini usually tracks the pace setters and is my top rated-- Bertie Blu Boy despite being capable of leading it also looks as though further will suit better and syill my 3rd top rated so a big danger if getting an uncontested lead-- Fleckerl also looks to want further but is still my 2nd top rated-- Shypen may find this trip too short to show its best-- He's My Cracker a possible leader but probably not on this surface as a slower surface looks to suit it best-- Parkour usually likes to track the leaders and could be a bit of a hidden danger-- Salvatore Fury may be better over a shorter trip and this race shouldnt be run to suit it-- Duke Cosimo may prefer a slower surface so not for me here-- Pearl Spectre may prefer a longer trip but has also been known to lead and could gain control of the rails so a possible danger-- Alkhor hasnt been as good this year but could be a hidden danger on 2015 form-- Gorokai has only recorded slow time and not for me.
SUMMARY: There's a few possible hidden dangers in this field of 12 and all 3 of those have been known to lead before look as though a longer trip would suit them even better, i'll stick with the proven and have a small each way wager on BADDILINI 11/1 who likes to race prominently and will be looking to get a good early position from which to attack and the stable have employed a good 3lb claiming apprentice to enhance their chances.
Baddilini 11/1 3rd
