We know plenty about most of the runners in this line-up as they have been knocking around for a good while now. However, BURIRAM is completely unexposed over this 2m 4f trip and he’s going to be overlooked in the market.
He appears to run too keenly, but if you look closer at his run style, he just has an awkward head carriage and that makes it difficult for the rider to keep his hands down on his neck to settle him. He has a massive each-way chance.
BAAEED has rocketed up through the ratings and sits on a very lofty looking perch of 119, after only three races. That is only 6lbs or 7lbs behind the very best in the world at the moment. Taken that the handicapper doesn’t make too many mistakes, we could be looking at a potential world-class superstar.
Let’s hope we see something spectacular, and he can keep the 100 per cent record intact in this one.
You need something here at a price as it will be a lottery as to who gets the best run at the right time. Jamie Spencer is the master of the ‘hold-up and pounce-late’ tactics. While everybody is getting a little twitchy and wanting to push the accelerator, Spencer will be sitting cool and waiting for the opportunity to fall in his lap. It’s going to be tough to watch, but ORBAAN can definitely get a slice of the pie and maybe he can get the gold medal.
ART POWER is a fascinating runner now dropping back down to the minimum distance and having ran some fantastic races in the Diamond Jubilee and the July Cup recently. He was one of only a couple who stayed over on the far side in the July Cup and given that the majority of the runners were miles away up the stands side, he came out of the race with a huge amount of credit. He is drawn down the centre and is close to Battaash, who is going for his fifth win in this race. Let’s hope Battaash goes flat out and Art Power can just sit on his tail and pounce late.
MOGUL is dropping down significantly in grade having contested seven consecutive Group 1 races all over the globe. Admittedly, these are not his ideal conditions underfoot, but he is such a talented runner that it looks like the Aidan O’Brien team are lowering his colours for a confidence boosting win before stepping back up to the highest level. There is no getting away from the fact he is a class act in this line-up.
EVER GIVEN has proved the model of consistency winning two of his three races at Ripon and then at Chester off a mark of 80. He’s up to 85 now, and that doesn’t look like his ceiling. Daniel Tudhope takes over in the saddle, which is a plus for Tom Dascombe’s charge.
MARCHING ARMY made no mistake on his third career start at Leicester, jumping off and showing the rest a clean pair of heels for that breakthrough success. Ray Dawson comes in onboard and takes off a valuable 3lbs as he tackles handicaps for the first time.
