Not my style to be picking one on a midweek AW race but this is a decent sprint and in these picking the best horse with proven form has worked out over the years. Gordon Lord Byron has been a small bit behind his top form this year but only a pound or 2 and he has also proven to be decent over a mile before. He up against a bit of a talking horse here in Richard Pankhurst who is a very short price at evens. I have GLB as more of a 4/1 shot here so the 7/1 generally available will have to be taken.
1 Point win 7/1 Generally 8/1 with Boyles
Broke too quickly and was in from from the start which would never work for him.
Communicator has some very nice AW form for a horse in here with an 88 rating. He was also a decent eye-catcher last time out when we were on at a huge price and he ran really well in the Cesarewich. He’ll be able to get competitive here and the jockey has a decent record on him. He simply doesn’t win enough but in this race of this mark 12/1 looks a bit of value.
1 Point win 12/1 365/VC
He got shuffled back and never really got a run at all in the finish . Disappointing after being backed into 6/1
