Racquet 3rd top rated and can be held up or track the pace setters. Insurplus is a 13 runner maiden and finishing 3rd twice is its best and has a chance here to make the frame again but looks as though further would suit it better. HAMIDAN'S GIRL 8/1 my top rated is a hold-up type and a maiden after 14 runs but this looks the easiest chance this 3year old has had.
Hamidan's Girl 8/1 4th
Gamesome 3rd best and will be staying on strongly at the finish. Economic Crisis 2nd best but I'm put off a bit as the trainer is 0-7 here and the jockey 0-3 DESERT ACE 6/1 can be held up or track the leaders, the trainer has a 14% win rate here and it's the same 14% for the jockey when riding for this stable.
Desert Ace 6/1 2nd
STAKE ACCLAIM 7/1 ought to be staying on strongly at the finish and my top rated. MIRZA 6/1 looks most likely pace setter and could improve with an easy lead. I will go with backing both of them if the stick reading is at least 8.5 which I doubt.
Mirza 6/1 9th
Duke Cosimo 3rd top rated either held up or tracks the leaders. Kenyy The Captain 2nd top tracks the leaders but doesn't want the going to be too fast NINJAGO 10/1 usually races prominently and then stays on strongly at the finish, trainer has 19% win rate here and jockey 20% win rate for the stable so all looks positive. Just 1 selection in this race which I will back each way but only if the sticks is 7.7 or higher.
Ninjago 16/1 5th
Letmestopyouthere 3rd top from a time recorded here and races prominently. Toofi 2nd top is usually held up for a late run CLEAR SPRING 15/2 doesn't want it to be too firm and can be held up or track the leaders it's the jockeys 1st ride for the stable who have a 2-5 record at this course so it looks a positive entry. I need a stick reading of 8.4 to bet at this course.
Clear Spring 15/2 5th
PEARL ACCLAIM 7/1 2nd top rated but needs good to firm ground to show its best IMPERIAL LEGEND 33/1 usually races prominently and stays on strongly at the finish and at the price has to be backed each way. I will be backing them both but it's a competitive race and my stakes will be kept lowish.
Imperial Legend 40/1 4th
Pearl Acclaim 7/1 6th
Whitecrest 2nd top rated needs a fast pace to aim at but that might not happen in this race. PERFECT PASTIME 25/1 can be held up or track the leaders and the trainer has a 22% win rate here and the jockey a 23% win rate for the stable and has to be an each way wager. Just the 1 bet but only if the going is good or faster.
