1 (3)Had expended much of its energy well before the start in last run (was fractious in its stall and had to be re+AC0-loaded ) and finished a tame 2nd as such. Should build on that ( the finish ).
2 (7)Recent form has not been encouraging. Can be given the go by.
3 (5)Given an easy run in last run ( 5.5 f ). Goes over its winning trip ( 8f ) and should run a good race.
4 (2)Either this runner has lost form or is on a weight reducing mission ( had won thrice during the cold season ). His current season runs points to that.
5 (6)Has won at shorter trips ( 6f ) in the past but has the bloodline to essay the mile trip with equal ease. Deserves a look for sure on that count.

6 (1)Last run was too bad to be true. He is certainly capable of better performance.
7 (4)Obliged her supporters when fancied ( 9/4 odds ) in last run. Bids for an encore.
Unnamed 2nd Favourite
