Piton Pete (9/4), Pull Together (9/4), Shalakar (11/4), Court Affairs (7/1), Flynnvincible (8/1), Some Ambition (40/1), Belle's Spirit (66/1), Downloadtheapp (80/1), Respectability (100/1)

Verdict

A relatively competitive opener to the card and it could well provide a good chance for PITON PETE to finally get off the mark with the stiff 2m looking the ideal trip for him. Pull Together has a race in him and he’s another than may be suited by this 2m trip and he would be dangerous if he gets an easy lead. On official rating Shalakar has a little bit to do at these weights and may fare better in handicaps especially on a sounder surface. Court Affairs has shown ability and could be better than his modest rating but based on that he has work to do at these weights with Flynnvincible another to watch (especially in the market) who may be seen to better effect in handicaps.
  1. Piton Pete
  2. Pull Together
  3. Court Affairs
