Tricky Dicky looks the most likely leader but only sets slowish paces so could be pushed to go faster by Bold Spirit and also by my 2nd top rated horse MESHARDAL who's trainer has a 16% win rate at this course and the jockey wins 11% of the time, Windforpower is my 3rd top rated animal here and the trainer only has a 6% win rate but the jockey rides 15% of winners for the stable but top of the heap is MAJOR CRISPIES 10/1 who can be held up or track the leaders and it's being ridden by a 7lb claiming apprentice who is making their debut for the stable here but if worth the 7lb claim it would take this horse I good bit further ahead on ratings so must have a chance at the weights to get back to winning ways and at the price a bit of insurance with an each-way wager.
Meshardal 3/1 1st
Major Crispies 10/1 Unp
This is a 10 runner apprentice jockeys race with just 2 that have been known to lead, the topweight Easy Code is one of them but may not want the going to be on the firm side and the trainer has a 29% win rated but the jockey has a 0-10 record for the stable but as always I will stick with the proven, MONARCH MAID 10/1 is my 3rd top rated and another possible pacesetter and the jockey has a 3-15 win ratio which points to them expecting a good run here, then in 2nd spot just 1lb higher is VIRILE 12/1 who's trainer has a 22% win rate and so does the jockey for this stable, so that looks like 2 likely candidates but again just 1lb ahead in top spot is CAPTAIN RYAN 4/1 who is a hold up type with only 2lb's separating my top 3 I will go with backing them all to show a profit whichever one wins.
Captain Ryan 7/1 3rd
Monarch Maid 10/1 9th
Virile 12/1 5th
Another apprentices race but 11 runners and 3 that have led before, Thornaby Princess is my 3rd top rated but the trainer is 0-10 at the course which doesn't bode well, in my 2nd place is CHANDRESH 8/1 who usually races prominently and stall 3 is ok the trainer is 1-5nat this course and the jockey 1-1 for the stable but my top spot is occupied by LOUMARIN 7/1 who has got stall 1 and is one of the possible leaders the jockey is 1-7 for this stable but the trainer has a 19% win ratio and if leading it could prove very hard to catch.
Chandresh 8/1 6th
Loumarin 7/1 3rd
Just 8 runners and 2 that have been known to lead before, that includes Kiringa my 4th top rated and Frank The barber my 3rd top rated, there's also a possible hidden danger in the shape of Hot Stuff, my 2nd top rated is Mighty Zip who usually races prominently but my top rated is the hold up horse DOCTOR PARKES 4/1 who from stall 2 could get a position on the rails and then be able to attack the pacesetters when they get into the straight, the apprentice jockey has ridden 4 winners for this stable and the stable has an 18% win rate here so it looks as though they are expecting a big run from the horse in this race.
Doctor Parkes 4/1 2nd
