Verdict

A competitive and interesting sprint and nearly all the field can be given some sort of chance although a few of them do have to handle the rise in grade. MIDNIGHT MALIBU still looks as though she has some improvement to come though on this surface and may well be able to defend her unbeaten C&D record. Robot Boy comes from a yard that know what it takes to win here and he looks a danger if he takes to this unique surface and the same could be said of Compas Scoobie. Poyle Vinnie and Classic Pursuit give trainer Mick Appleby a nice 1-2 punch in this although the former needs to come back to form and the latter needs to prove himself in this grade. Tricky Dicky has yet to run a poor race here but all those runs have been over 6f and this 5f may prove too sharp.
  1. Midnight Malibu
  2. Robot Boy
  3. Classic Pursuit
