Verdict
Three-year-olds (who were in the majority) dominated this race last year taking the first five placed home in a nine runner field. They won’t be able to do that this year but in the Andrew Balding trained SEEUSOON they look to have a leading candidate as Balding attempts to improve his record in maidens at the track; he’s currently 1-7 on the AW here. The main opposition looks to come from the older brigade with Glacier Fox having the form to win this if he’s ready after a long absence and also with Nine Elms if he can build on his debut run here over this longer distance. Withoutdestination is the other three-year-old in the line up but he’s not quite shown enough application so far.
  1. Seeusoon
  2. Glacier Fox
  3. Nine Elms
