Verdict

QUARENTA is progressing rapidly through the ranks and produced a performance that suggested he could take high order in this company at Fontwell last time out. He looks to have control over the handicapper at this stage with the light rise and remains unexposed. On the other hand, the veteran Sametegal is a fragile, yet classy, individual who showed he was still in good heart at Newbury last time. That run shouldn't be dismissed at all while the same can be applied to Belami Des Pictons. Just A Sting must be considered too, given his aptitude for C&D last year plus his encouraging seasonal reappearance in a hot-looking race.
  1. Quarenta
  2. Sametegal
  3. Just A Sting
