A nice Listed race with 14 runners and 3 that are likely to set the pace if allowed, the four 3year olds could be able to improve so can't be discarded easily but 5th spot is the highest rating of them and Rosy Briar could easily improve, topweight Bounce is 4th top rated and usually tracks the leaders, 3rd spot is Mayfair Lady another possible pacesetter, Buying Trouble is my 2nd top rated and looks as though a longer trip might help so should be staying on at the finish in top spot is GRAVITY FLOW 4/1 who is another possible front runner and if getting to the front it could prove hard to catch, this will be its 1st run of the year but did win 1st time out last year so it's not a definite negative.
Gravity Flow 4/1 8th
Of the 10 runners there's 2 that have been known to lead and Picture Dealer is one of them and is drawn the best in stall 1 so could prove hard to catch but there's not enough statistics to say if there's any positives or negatives which also applies to Gold Club but they are 2 in the reckoning for this race but the selection has to be JOE PACKET 10/1 just because the trainer has a 26% win rate here and the apprentice jockey has ridden a winner for the stable from just a few rides so it looks a positive booking and it's a big enough price to back each way.
Joe Packet 25/1 1st
With 14 runners I would expect more than one that likes to lead but that's a good starting point, Indian Affair but it is drawn on the wrong side in stall 14 but it could be OK if nothing else tried to steal its thunder by also trying to lead but being my 4th top rated it could have at least place claims and it comes from the Milton Bradley stable as does Divine Call who is my top rated but the trainer has a 0-19 record at this track and this one doesn't want the going to be on the firm side of things which seems most likely, Chetan is my 2nd top rated and its the 1st runner for this trainer at this course and it's also the debut of the jockey for the stable, if the going is good to firm the most likely one to prosper is TITUS SECRET 9/2 who usually tracks the leaders and being in stall 5 it should be able to go wherever deems necessary, the trainer has a good 22% win ratio here and it's the jockeys debut but he is more than capable but my stakes in this race will be kept low.
Titus Secret 9/2 3rd
