One of the bigger standouts of the day across the country in the curtain raiser for the big dance. Hard to know what the Heavy track will do to this field, but it’s likely you will need to stay out of congestion. Pierata draws well to sit in the middle of the field off the fence. Tom Berry has a 42.9% place strike rate from this position over 1200m, so he’s no slouch in traffic, and he should be driving the Bentley of the race. He was never a chance in the Epsom, and needs the shorter trip. Should be rock hard fit now, and Jungle Edge the obvious bolter danger. That’s why they give you odds.
Pierata to win.
