Places (1-2-3-4) from Barrier Draw

A big field of juveniles head to post for this opening event where the raced entrants should make their experience count. The Matchett pair of TWILIGHT MOON and DONDERWEER produced smart respective debuts in the same event over this distance two weeks ago. The former attracted outside betting support and he ran on smartly for 2nd behind the promising Look To The Sky. He had his stablemate just over half a length further adrift and that formline is undoubtedly worth following. RING OF FIRE also has experience and the consistent chestnut colt was 3rd best behind two smart newcomers five weeks ago. The pick of the first timers could be AL BORAK and CREATION from the Azzie and Laird stable's respectively. The former is a bay son of Gimmethegreenlight who gets the red-hot services of Gavin Lerena whilst the latter is by Vercingetorix and he also has an in-form jockey in the form of Raymond Danielson in the saddle.
