Racquet my 3rd top rated but a few spots below my top pair. SEA OF GREEN 3/1 my 2nd top rated but with the apprentices 7lb claim that would move it 1lb ahead BUNCE 12/1 is in top spot and can be held up or track the leaders.
SUMMARY: I will be going with backing both of the selections to show a profit whichever one wins but more heavily each way on Bunce as the jockey has a 4-14 strike rate for the stable so it points to connections expecting a big run in this race.
Sea Of Green 100/30 4th
ROYAL BRAVE 11/2 my 3rd top rated and usually tracks the pace setters. SUWAAN 16/1 is 2nd top rated and this 3year old is possibly a pace setter DESERT ACE 14/1 is my top rated and is quite versatile with its running style.
SUMMARY: I might back all 3 in this race as Royal Brave has a good jockey booking with a 16% win ratio, Suwaan could lead and then prove hard to catch and being a 3year old it could still be able to improve while Desert Ace has a decent jockey booking with a 15% win rate and the trainer has a 13% win rate at this course, so I'm not quite sure whats going to work best on the day and hope to back the 3 to show a profit whichever does the business so will be going with 1 win bet and 2 each way wagers.
Royal Brave 11/2 3rd
Desert Ace 16/1 2nd
Suwaan 7/1 5th
Musharrif likes to track the pace setters and should have a fast pace to track here Jack Luey is well drawn in stall 2 for a possible pace setter THE NAZCA LINES 6/1 is a 3year old who did its best last year at Ripon and another possible leader.
SUMMARY: There's 5 runners in this race who have led before so it ought to be a fast early pace, Musharrif could be the one to prosper if they go off too fast and fade nearing the finish but the selection who could lead is also capable if sitting just off the pace and finishing strongly which it did last time out when winning and that was despite finding a degree of trouble getting a clear run and if getting a run here it can follow up its last win.
The Nazca Lines 6/1 8th
I've got this race down to 2 and they are the pair at the top of the handicap and both are front running types and could easily have the race between them all the way but I have a feeling only 1 will run as they are both from the same stable, so only time will tell but my money will go on either of them or both of them if they both run so MAJESTIC HERO 10/1 and UNION ROSE 10/3 look the most likely to win.
Majestic Hero 10/1 7th
Union Rose 10/1 4th
