Another post. Shock horror. Nothing horrible about our class information.
I will detail a few horses with a chance although they are to some extent more speculative than super confident.
Sometimes you need a bit of luck.

Something of a hit and hope here with Blue Battalion, trained by John Gallagher. Not really a trainer associated for debut winners - that may be the case today. This son of Cityscape is priced 25/1 so there is meat on the bone. May well drift out to huge odds. With these type of horses, you find they either win or lose badly. Still, for a small multibet may hold each-way claims at big odds.
Blue Battalion 33/1 Unp
Looked horrendously slow. Either hopeless or injured. Very slow. Snail's pace.

A fascinating if not an equally difficult race to assess. Why? Well, we have a good few horses here with ability if not big reputations. One of them may have a big reputation. East Coast Swing did little on debut but clearly held in some regard by connections. I would draw a line through that debut. A wide draw is far from ideal. It could be the difference between winning and losing, especially if pushed wide on the bend. There is nothing worse than struggling if not getting to the rail. At odds of 40/1, there may be some value although you may need to cross your fingers for some luck in running.
East Coast Swing 40/1 Unp
The betting told the story. Very strange why this expensive buy holds significant entries and poor. May well show ability at three.

A restricted race type. A couple of these may have more ability than looks. However, I am more interested in Minnelli trained by Philip McBride. This horse was expected to go well last time out but seemed to struggle with the early pace and slightly outpace. She ran on well in the closing stages and this trip will help. At odds of 10/1 looks to hold fair claims.
Minnelli 10/1 1st
Thankfully one of them run well. A battling performance to be headed and regain the lead. Enjoyable to watch after a couple of jokers in the pack.
