Verdict

A decent middle distance handicap to kick off proceedings, and a race in which a couple of potential improving sorts are lurking. The handicapper would appear to have the eight race maiden Sir Gnet locked down on his current mark, but there's every likelihood that a step up in trip can unleash some further improvement, and it's fully plausible that we've not seen this Galileo colt at his very best just yet. Pioneertown has proved a shade in and out, but his Kempton effort behind Therthaar earlier this month puts him bang in contention at a galloping track which should play to his strengths. However, the lightly raced filly LOVE CONQUERS boasts the strongest credentials. Her Newbury second to White Desert in July (maiden) reads very well and she can strike at the second attempt in a handicap now linking up with a rider who excels at this track.
  1. Love Conquers
  2. Sir Gnet
  3. Pioneertown
