Selected at: 11/1

Produced his best run over fences so far at this track over a longer trip. His very best form has come on a sounder surface but he has gone well on soft ground in the past and he will be able to cash in on his crashing mark sooner or later. He won at Tramore and Downpatrick in Ireland so a tight, undulating track suits him well.

Verdict

This ordinary handicap may go to TORTUGA BAY, who showed enough on her chasing debut to suggest she can win a race of this nature.
