Has hit the frame over C&D previously and recent form has confirmed the gelding in need of a change of luck. Better than his last couple of runs suggest and worth a market check.

Betting

Forecast

Arbourfield (11/4), The Game Of Life (10/3), Ahlan Bil Zain (4/1), Billyfairplay (4/1), Ahundrednotout (8/1), Dandys Gold (11/1), Eacharn (12/1), Silk Cravat (12/1), Koybig (14/1), Kasbah (25/1), Hee Haw (33/1), Descendant (33/1), Waitaki (33/1)

Verdict

The Joseph O'Brien-trained THE GAME OF LIFE can build on his promising debut here over 1m last month by landing the spoils on his second career starts dropping in trip. The four-year-old can see off the threat from his biggest challengers, C&D winners Ahlan Bil Zain and the J P McManus-owned Arbourfield.
