Verdict

Two promising gallopers headline what is otherwise a fairly stock-standard Class 4 contest. #5 Infinity Endeavour ran a bold race at his second start last time out, where he looked the winner in the straight but somehow found the erratic but talented Sight Leader too strong. The step up to 1400m is crucial for the blueblood, who is bred to get over a bit of ground (by Fastnet Rock out of American G1 winner Black Mamba). He can break through here. #4 All You Need also impressed last start with his debut effort, running home very strongly for second to Relentless Me. He has a slightly awkward draw but he is another who will find himself out of Class 4 before too long. Outside of these two, it is very open. #13 Wingold is honest enough, but he just struggles to find the length he needs to win in Class 4. If things go right for him, though, he could make his way into the placings. Next best, #8 Spicy Kaka, who made up solid ground last start from near the rear. Joao Moreira hops aboard now and he looks to be on a rating where he will be competitive.
