#8 Reco Marlow
Master’s Class race at Wenty on a Saturday night! Even though his recent form shows two wins over this trip, one was from a more suitable inside draw where he was just able to cross early by a pimple. Then, the most recent win was ‘Bradbury’ where the two leaders bumped heavily and he scored a saloon run through. Even then he only just gripped on to win. I believe he will struggle to cross these rivals and get too far back. It’s likely he will be over bet here and I am keen to Lay.

#8 Flying Merkel
This chaser has an outstanding record from inside draws and a horrible record from outside draws. There is plenty of early pace in boxes 4 to 7 in this event and I cannot see him crossing cleanly. He is also very stubborn and only seems to fully kick into gear once he reaches the fence. By the time he might find the fence it’s likely to be far too late.
