On Sunday with three G2 races on the card.
But where are all the horses? The Sprint has 7, the Mile 5 and the Cup 9 runners. These would have to be the smallest fields on record for these particular races.
The Sprint is over 1200m and there is very strong support for Lucky Sweynesse to make a return to the winner's circle. But 1.2? Even with Zac on board? Maybe the play here is quinellas with Victor The Winner on a generous 15.0 and Duke Wai on 12.00.
The Mile should be a gift for California Spangle with Matthew Chadwick riding for Tony Cruz and they are on 1.8 so again a quinella springs to mind probably with Beauty Eternal with Zac Purton riding for John Size and they are on 2.6 and although it will do little for the pension fund could provide an interest.
The Cup is over 2000m and here Caspar Fownes's Straight Arron is on top on 4.2 with Vincent Ho riding. Not far off and preferred by us is Sword Point on 4.5 and we are going a bit wider with Russian Emperor on 8.3 and Nimble Nimbus on 13.0.
