Ballesteros: may prefer a different surface but does usually lead or race prominently but may struggle in this race despite being the topweight.
Born To Finish: is a hold-up type and is my 3rd top rated and ought to be able to get a position on the rails from which to attack late on and could make the frame.
Panther Patrol: is versatile with its running style but maybe this surface doesn't suit it best and not on my list for winning this race.
Bertie Blu Boy: is a front-running sort and its best time puts it 4th on my own speed figures but could make the frame if others falter.
Waneen: hasn't any course and distance form and may find this trip a bit too far, I doubt it will win but I'm not sure its lay material either.
King Of Swing: hasnt been in very good form lately and also might need a different surface to this one and its not for me here.
Colourbearer: is my 2nd top rated but the trainer is 0-20 at this course which puts me off its chances but could still make the frame.
Bush Warrior: is another versatile type when it comes to its running style and is my top rated but may need to get some luck from stall 8 but it's not a dealbreaker.
Something Lucky: has no recent form here and back in 2015 its times were slow as it finds this distance a bit too far and not for me in this race.
SUMMARY: A poor showing for the only sprint on a Saturday but I'm hoping my top rated selection BUSH WARRIOR 8/1 can get a good prominent early position or even lead from stall 8 and if doing so would have every chance to stay on the stronger at the finish and find itself back in the winner's enclosure.
