MEET THE PROSPECTIVE WINNERS
SELECTIONS: Samraat/Uncle Sigh/Extrasexyhippzster
The undefeated colt out of Noble Causeway is expected to run well enough to beat these unless Uncle Sigh and Extrasexyhippzster comes up with something that we haven’t seen so far. He was two pounds heavier than Uncle Sigh last time out and only defeated him by one lengths over the same distance in the Withers Stakes. He’s allowing him 7 pounds now but have enough class and show signs of wanting to go further which is a positive. One to beat. Workout score 32.
Ran a very game race last time out against our top pick. He look like the type that will weaken the further he goes. He comes back into this race after two impressive works and receive a workout score of 164 based on our app. He’s 7 pounds lighter than our top pick on this occasion but the fact he will weaken in the end leave several doubts in our mind. However, with a positive change of jockey and an impressive workout tab, don’t leave him off your tickets.
He could caused the upset. Of our top three picks, he’s the one we think can be rated from just off the leaders and make a move in the stretch. Will be used as a BACKUP HORSE. Workout score 100.
He’s just our 4th choice. Nothing exceptional to report. Will not be used on our bets.
