This is a hot race with the likes of Wildman Jack and Bound for Nowhere setting a lofty, but not unsurmountable standard.
TIGER BLOOD has been a winning machine at a slightly lower level in Florida since moving to turf races winning nine from 12 on the surface and nine out of 10 at this trip.
He’s moved to the Mike Maker barn, who have a healthy 16% strike rate with horses first up for him and he has booked Luis Saez to ride, who has a 27% strike rate for him from 80 rides. Tiger Blood ticks a lot of boxes and with an extra place, looks a cracking each-way bet.
The four-time Grade 1 winner RUSHING FALL is back to defend the postponed Jenny Wiley.
After running an excellent 103 beyer on her return last month, the Chad Brown mare can take a lead off the high-speed Brazilian-bred Jolie Olimpica, who’s two wins since her move to Richard E. Mandella both came at 5 and a half furlongs.
She should be primed to make her move off the bend and put this contest to bed.
