Glass Office and Perfect Pasture are my joint 3rd top rated horses and both can either be held up or track the leaders. RAUCOUS 12/1 is my 2nd top rated and needs good to firm ground to show its best the trainer has a 22% win rate with his older horses and the jockey has a 24% win rate for the stable so it looks as though they are expecting good things but it is a Group race so they should all be trying. EQTIRAAN 11/1 is my top rated and this 3year old is a versatile sort with its running style so can adapt to whats needed in this race, the trainer has a reasonable 12% win rate at this course and the jockey has a 20% win rate for this stable so the booking points to them expecting a big run in this race.
SUMMARY: I will be going with backing both selections each way, I will most likely have more on my top rated but will be backing them both to show a profit whichever one of them does the business but as to be expected for a Group race it does look a competitive affair and I won't be going in all guns blazing and that's if the going isn't on the soft side.
Raucous 12/1 4th

Cool Bahamian is 3rd top rated but may prefer a further distance. Stanhope is in 2nd top spot and this 3year old could easily make the frame HIGHLY SPRUNG 10/1 is my top rated with a few spots in hand and the trainer has an 8-32 win rate at this course and the jockey has a 19% win rate for the stable so hopefully I'm on the right one and the price will allow me to go with an each way wager.
NR: Highly Sprung

Rose Marmara is 3rd top and usually likes to track the leaders but hasn't hit form so far this year Rose Eclair is my 2nd top rated but may find this too short if its good to firm ground
HOT HANNAH 14/1 is top rated Curtesy of a time recorded at course and distance last year and hasn't hit that height so far this year but hopefully this switch back to this course will rejuvenate it and it can return to winning ways as long as the going isn't on the soft side of things and luckily the price gives me some insurance with being big enough to go with an each way bet.
NR: Hot Hannah
PS: My ratings are all worked out on good or good to firm ground so an allowance isn't needed so PLEASE CHECK THE GOING BEFORE BETTING
