NOTES:Of the three rated races this is the one I’m looking forward to most. No T§* horses available today and in fact, we only have one horse having travelled to go racing today and that one is second best in the race above.
Here I have perceived a slight draw bias….high just favoured over middle, low a little more off the pace. It’s still to early to put complete faith in this or anything else.
My top rated has a middle draw, possibly a little lower end of middle than I’d like. David Barron opted to give this one it’s handicap debut in a 16 runner “all aged” race in August last year and he finished just under three lengths behind Broctune Papa Gio, who finished seventh in that event. The draw didn’t do him any favours that day….the outside draw….which saw him running a solo on the stands side and I’m inclined to bin that run.
Right now I would have no idea as to his required ground as we’ve only seen him four times and, on the first three of those runs, he’d have been racing for a handicap mark.
I expect more from him this season.
It’s one that I’ll enjoy watching.
Have a great day
