It’s an interesting race. There are both positives and negatives with him. The negatives are that it’s his first race since Oct, he runs over 6f for the first time (which I think will suit him) and he has to prove that he will pass horses from behind.
In the past he hasn't seemed too keen which is why he made the running last time. He certainly won't lead with Greenstead High and Celtic Sixpence in the field. Yet, judged on his win over Fortrose Academy (since a winner over 6f), I think 6f will suit ideally, especially if they go quick. He has a high cruising speed.
On the plus side, there isn’t a horse in the race that is in particularly good form, and the value of his win has worked out well and he is only 5lbs higher.
He has a perfect draw in stall one and will wear the blindfold in the stalls like he did when he won last time. He has impressed the staff at home since his break and he is still an unexposed horse.
