Top quality race for the 5th event at Sandown, with a few runners that put in very strong last start performances. No real pace in the race, and with a smaller field there really are no excuses. Four runners stick out data wise here in Cherry Tortoni, Ziegfield, Elephant and Harbour Views. Ziegfield looks the obvious leader and can run a time to match these horses. Oliver riding well at the moment, and no reason he can’t give a shout at odds. Cherry Tortoni is an honest runner with a great second up record. Really think he gets a soft transit and has a lightening closing speed to chase down any of these. Harbor Views and Elephant off their last starts are obviously great chances, but data wise it might just be Cherry Tortoni chasing down Ziegfield. Sticking with Cherry Tortoni.

Good Luck

1 Lunar Fox Have to respect the rider and horse. Can’t see him putting in a bad run, but just don’t think he can produce a time that the others can in this race.
2 Elephant Stiff as a board at the Valley, and will be up on the speed in transit in this race. Lane 47.5% to place on the Jockey Analysis Tool (JAT)  when on pace at this trip, so can’t see this horse off the podium.
3 Harbour Views Ripping win last start, and no reason to think he can’t fly home again. Only risk is tucking in to the fence at the rear from the draw. Still, expect to see him in the finish.
4 Romancer The old boy rarely runs a bad race. Has the top turn of foot, but just not sure he will get a chance to utilise it if he is dragged along early.
5 Ziegfeld Should lead and looks to be no real speed in the race. This is his trip, and Oliver can control the race at the front and give it a real shout. Value.
6 Cherry Tortoni Should have won first up and a great second up record. Drawn well, has a great turn of foot and will have every chance today.
7 Worsfold Surprised last start at odds, and looks like he will finish the race well again. Just not sure he has the required late speed to feature in the finish.
