Good luck to those going racing with Grandorio today! I have rated his race, despite it being in excess of 12 furlongs and the figures are below.
The race has a history of just two previous runnings and nothing like enough data to produce a profile for the race but, both runnings have been won by a four year old. That brings in your horse but when added to a few other things I noticed the most likely winner is the top weight. Like I say though, nothing like enough data to produce anything definitive.
JUVENILE “OF NOTE”
Hannon runs a 2-y-o called IVAWOOD in the opener at Sandown and this is the most expensive “Zebedee” sold so far. He cost 220,000Gns and he is very highly regarded. He has the Queens KINEMATIC to beat here but he’s another you need in your tracker whatever he does today.
It’s a bit busier than yesterday so let’s crack on.

I will just be having my loyalty bet, 20/80, on GRANDORIO. It is interesting to keep hearing the lads at Hambleton suggesting he needs give when two of his three win to date have come on good to firm. On all evidence, I’m happy for that sun to keep blazing down and we’ll see what happens.
