This is strange as there's 12 runners but not one that's known as a front-running sort which always makes analysis hard, my 3rd top rated is the bottom weight Round The Island who might prefer even further and the apprentice's 3lb claim moves it to 2nd spot, my original 2nd spot is Meshardal who usually races prominently but top of my pile is BUCCANEERS VAULT 6/1 who recorded its best time this year at Hamilton so this course should be ok for it to reproduce that previous time and get itself back to the winners enclosure.
Buccaneers Vault 6/1 4th
With 8 runners I hope they all take part but once again I've not got a noted frontrunner in the race and it's quite a poor race and I've only got 2 with recorded times, MININGGOLD 6/1 starts off in 2nd spot but its 5lb claiming apprentice moves it to top spot but this horse is a hold up type and the race might not be run to suit it but then again somethings got to lead but my top rated is the 3-year-old LOVE OASIS 11/8 who can also be held up but can also track the pace setters but I'm going with both of them to show a profit whichever one wins.
Oasis Dream 6/4 1st
Mininggold 11/1 3rd
The 3rd sprint before I find a front runner but there's only one in this field of 10 and then it might not like the going if its good to firm and then I'm not sure if it can lead, the two at the top of the handicap are my 2nd and 3rd top rated horses but my top rated horse SEA OF GREEN 6/1 has got a few spots in hand if reproducing its best but at least it was this year over this course and distance when finishing 2nd four runs ago and hopefully it can go one better this time.
Sea Of Green 6/1 1st
Another 8 runner affair if they all remain in the race but there is a front-running sort in Aprovado who is my 4th top rated, then I've got joint 2nd top rated horses Tatlisu and Danish Duke who are both types that like to track the leaders but the latter may prefer some cut in the ground but I've got the 3-year-old bottom weight THE MCGREGORNATOR 7/4 as my top rated and the trainer does well at this course so hopefully it carries on in this race and it can go one better than its last run where it finished in 2nd place over this course and distance.
The McGregornator 7/4 4th
This 12 runner race has 4 that have led before and 3 of them are in my top 4, Pixeleen stall 11 is my 4th top rated but may find the distance too far if they go a fast early gallop, Little Palaver is my 3rd top rated drawn in stall 6 and recorded its best time over this course and distance this year, my 2nd top rated is Charles Molson who isn't a front-running type so could be the one to prosper if they go off too fast and ought to stay on to make the frame but top rated is UPSTAGING 20/1 who is versatile with its race tactics and that includes leading and has had 1 run this year to hopefully blow away the cobwebs and is now primed to get back to winning ways but luckily for me it's plenty big enough a price to back it each way.
