Having bypassed the maiden option and jumped straight into qualifiers Worldeater (BOB BAFFERT) is unbeaten in three and considering the manner of his latest victory looks impossible to oppose despite the triple penalty. Standing Tall adopted the same policy and finished third to Worldeater over 1 1/8M firm before winning his own qualifier over 1M firm.
Smart At Best (CLOSUTTON COGNAC) had a 2LB penalty when beaten 3L by Worldeater on that ones debut and is now 6LB better so will hope to be able to overturn the form but stablemate Kiss From Above was only 3/4L behind Worldeater in the same race and may be the better option.
Courageous epic (BLACK CAT RACING) has run very well over shorter but struggled at this trip. Kitten From The North has struggled in all four qualifier runs so has plenty to do. Shankleys Gift finished fourth on her first qualifier run but has not improved on that since.
Arju (KINGS OF THRONES) ran well in her last qualifier 3L behind Worldeater but needs to improve significantly again to figure.
Super Kitten (LANES END FARM) wasn’t beaten far when seventh to Worldeater. He is now 4LB better in and will appreciate the extra furlong so looks dangerous despite still being a maiden.
To Be Continued (KDS) ran well last time but not much hope to overturn the form with Worldeater.
Miss Joyrider (JONJOS YARD) has run well overall but recent qualifier running leaves this one with plenty to do.
Cindys Joy Abounds (SUMNER FARMS) has found it tough going and is set to struggle again.
ANALYSIS: Chances of a stable 1-2 look bright with WORLDEATER set to swallow them up.
