The conditions couldn’t suit Sole Power any better here. He is the only Group 1 level performer in the field and drawn in the middle I’m having a bit of difficulty picking out something to beat him here. This race lacks any of the real top level proven performers and those are the only ones in general that have been beating the selection over the last year or so. 9/2 looks a small bit of value in this race given that most of the field really shouldn’t be quick enough.

I’m also going with Kingsgate Native at a huge looking 33/1 EW. He is obviously well capable of taking a hand here and did show a few signs last year that he may be able to recover some of his old form. I’d be gutted if he came back to form here at all and I wasn’t on as I’ve selected him quite a few times in the past.

Memory Cloth is one that is have followed a few times lately and he seemed to improve considerably last time out when a good 7th in the Spring Cup. He is down an pound or two here and although the ground conditions might not be ideal for him he is worth small bet at 20/1 Generally. He is 4lbs lower than his last win and looks certain to be winning soon.
1 Point win 20/1 Generally
Rodrigo De Torres looks a fair bit overpriced here given his last very good run in a conditions event here over 7 Furlongs. The bare facts of that race put him in with an excellent shout here even off his 4lbs higher mark, given that nearly everything in that race was nearly 10lbs rated higher than him and it was his first run back. He has decent course form and won a very decent 8 furlong conditions event last year beating a few decent performers in the process. 20/1 looks well overpriced and well worth a bet.

I’m going with a big priced one EW here as I really fancy Dawn Approach to win and he is too short for me to have a bet. Leitir Mor’s form is not that much behind a lot of the runners this field apart from the top 2 in the betting and given his very good tough looking run in the Dewhurst I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he could tough it out for a place here at a big looking 66/1. Hes worth a min bet ew.
½ Point EW 66/1 Various
I’m going to go with one of the younger generation here in Silverheels. He seems a decent price on some of his form last year, and looks to have been given a chance by the handicapper. He has a good record fresh and at 20/1 on Betfair should be worth a small bet.
