Aeolus is dropped in class and therefore could be a possible danger but its not got any recent, if any, all-weather form to look at---Captain Colby is a possible pace setter but stall 6 isn't ideal in the make up of the race but could be a bit of a hidden danger---Dhahmaan usually tracks the leaders but doesn't make my top rated but being a 3year old it could still improve---Gracious John is a possible front runner from stall 5 and recorded a fast time on this surface at Kempton and can't be discarded –Kimberella is a versatile type of runner but hasn't any form on the all-weather so could be dangerous but could go well if getting control of the rails from stall 3---Lord Of The Land looks as though a longer trip will suit it better so could be staying on at the finish---Medicean Man looks to be a much better horse at 5 furlongs so may struggle here---Mythmaker has got good recorded times over this course and distance and could get a good position from stall 4 and if getting to the front could be hard to catch---Outback Traveller has only recorded slow times and looks to want further so not for me---Realize may find another furlong suits it better but will be staying on near the end of the race---Rivellino is 2nd best on times recorded here but may get into an early scrimmage from stall 2 with fast starters in the next 4 stalls on the outside of it---Janes Memory may prefer a slower surface so not for me in this race.
SUMMARY: A very nice looking Listed class race with 12 runners but it's got 4 possible pace setters which is always a bonus, Aeolus is dropped in class so has to be feared, Gracious John looks good using its Kempton time and there's nothing between Mythmaker and Rivellino on Lingfield times and their prices are very generous in my opinion,im not sure if I can narrow it down further especially with Captain Colby and Kimberella being possible hidden dangers and I think the wisest move may be to sit back and savour the action and keep out powder dry for another time.

In this field of 11 ive found 7 that have tried to lead all the way before so it should be a fast run race and all of my top 4 are front running types, ive found 2 horses that I would be looking to lay, if the price permits, in Dusty Blue and Zipedeedodah and both for the same reason, in 4th spot is Air Of York drawn stall 8 and 3rd spot is Red Stripes stall 3 who at the time of writing have no declared jockeys so my ratings may change a little if an apprentice is used on either of these 2 but ive got joint top rated horses with INNOCENTLY 5/1 who is in stall 6 and has got a 5lb claiming apprentice on board and Quality Art 9/1 who is also being ridden by an apprentice but only a 3lb claimer. Normally with a bottomweight you think about a horse maybe being outclassed but this horse did the same last year by running in class 6 races and then winning when moved up to class 5 carrying a low weight against slightly better horses and it has an opportunity to do the same again this time around but its running at this course Friday night and it has never run 2 days on the trot before but has won within 3 days, so firstly im not sure if it will run in both races and then theres no guarantee it can do its best running in races this close together and I will err on the side of caution but if for some reason it doesnt run Friday night then I think it does have a decent chance.
