This race is possibly the most difficult sprint of the year given the amount of luck in running, the track and the speed of it. I would have to go with outsiders here as the margins are tiny here between the runners and anything near the top of the market isn’t value in this race.
I’m going with 2 horses with a bit of class in Free Zone and Racy. Free Zone is off a decent mark after his poor recent form but given that he would have needed his seasonal reappearance I don’t this it’s out of the question that he can improve here and the mark of 100 is well within his grasp on his best form. He’ll go on more of less any ground and 33/1 looks a bit of value. Racy has been very good at Meyden this year and he probably needed his couple of runs since. He is worth a small risk at huge odds of 40/1. Again he is flexible with ground.
½ Point win Free Zone 33/1 Various
½ Point win RACY 40/1 Betvictor Stan James
Gramercy got behind at Chester last time out and his race was run. He is of a very good mark has shown a few times this year he is possibly ready to win a race and 8/1 looks value in this weak enough affair.
2 Points win 8/1 Various
Star of Angels is back here after a very long layoff, but has a decent record fresh and is down to a very decent mark. The trainer is well capable of getting one to win after this kind of layoff and 16/1 looks value.
