Verdict

Not a race which necessarily sets the pulses racing, which implies that we should focus upon those horses with the potential to do better. The handicap debutante Bayshore Freeway merits respect given her stable headquarters; albeit the actual worth of what she has achieved in maiden company is open to debate. Therefore, with some minor reservations about this longer trip, we'll side with the 1m2f Redcar runner up GLOBAL STYLE, and for small stakes hope that this €250,000 son of Nathaniel can finally start living up to his very costly price tag.
