On paper it's a competitive race with just 8 runners and only one known front runner but there's 2 or maybe 3 potentially hidden dangers so it's not a race to betting in too heavily but I'm hoping I've found the winning angle in the race, if Groundworker can transfer his Newcastle time to here it could be a threat and the same applies to Monsieur Paddy and Vale Of Flight but they all look happier in class 6 races so may be outclassed here, Powerful Dream and China Excels are my joint 3rd top rated, the latter has led before but only when nothing else wants to but I doubt that will happen in this race, Compton River is 2nd top rated but stall 8 doesn't look ideal especially as nearly all the runners like to sit just off the pace by tracking the leaders and in this case it looks most likely that BAHANGO 10/3 will do the front running role especially as it's drawn the number one stall and with the 7lb the apprentice claims, he has had 3 rides for this stable resulting in one win makes it look like a positive booking, it also makes it my top rating, so I do expect the selection to get away fast and control the race from the front for an all the way victory.

This is a poor 12 runner class 6 affair with just one known front runner which means Deer Song coming out of stall 6 would normally be a bit of a hidden danger but it's still a maiden after 27 runs so there's something amiss and it's not for me, there's' only 3 runners in the race that have run fast enough to register on my figures since the 1st Jan 2016 and 6 that I can eliminate from my analysis, Little Indian is my 3rd top rated but this one always looks as though a longer trip would suit and this race may not be run at a fast early gallop which wouldn't suit it either, Justice Rock is my 2nd top rated and that's despite still being a maiden after 34 races which would put me off backing the win part but maybe worth betting for a place, my top spot is FABULOUS FLYER 5/1 and this one usually likes to track the leaders and could gain control of the rails just behind the leader from its stall 4 draw from where it could get the first crack at the leader and then stay on the stronger at the finish and hopefully get back into the winners enclosure.
