This doesn't look a good race and half the field is made up of 3year olds who can improve without warning so any stakes have to be kept in check, Entertaining ben hasn't shown much timewise recently but a time from 2015 would make it 3rd best but I couldn't be confident it will show its best here, 2nd top using a Kempton time would be SnooIzy Sioux but its time at this course has been slow so not really sure what to expect but it could feasibly make the frame but again I wouldn't be confident, both of them have been known to lead before so could be thereabouts in the race but my top rated ASK THE GURU 11/1 is also a front-running type and if this one does get to the front it could lead all the way but I won't be going in very heavily with some unproven qualities in the race but at least at the price I can go with an each way bet.
Ask The Guru 11/1 8th
In this field of 11 there's 7 that have been known to lead before, Krystalite is 4th best in stall 7 and a possible pacesetter, Shackled N Drawn I my 3rd best and might be the one to prosper if cut each other's throats vying for the lead and that could happen to some of these, Red Stripes is my 2nd top rated and has got stall 2 which could help if its fast enough away to grab the rails but the horse drawn on its inside, although not in my top 4, is also a front-running sort, sitting at the top of my list is YOU'RE COOL 9/1 who has been running fairly consistently lately and if either getting to the front or gaining a good early position from which to attack is capable of winning this race and the booking of the 3lb claiming apprentice looks a positive move seeing as he's got a 24% win rate for this stable so I'm hoping this will be when it gets back to winners circle and at the price I'm thinking it has to be an each-way investment.
You're Cool 9/1 1st
This is a dire race and probably best left well alone especially when all of my top 3 haven't a positive of any sort against their name. Tasaaboq my 3rd best but may prefer further not sure of the jockey booking Fever Few 2nd top usually tracks the leaders but trainer is only 1-20 here DOCTOR PARKES 14/1 would be a few spots clear but the 7lb claiming jockey is 0-7 for the stable but maybe that's just coincidence and if so the claim puts it even further clear and maybe worth a small wager, I say small because there no known front-runners in the race and the selection doesn't like a fast and furious early pace so this race just might be run to suit it but I'm hoping and each way wager will pay dividends.
