Riknnah is on a winning streak and is surely overpriced here after her course and distance success on handicap debut last time. She had to give 10lbs to the 2nd placed horse that day and they pulled nicely clear of the rest. That win came in a very good time which makes me feel she still has something left in the tank off just a 3lbs higher mark. Good to Firm ground the last day so conditions should suit here. There’s been a slight draw bias towards the mid to far rail this meeting so far, so her draw looks another positive. With the yard and jockey combination holding a great record on the July course and both are operating off a strike rate in high 20’s.
Samoot was well behind She Do when last racing over this trip. Kingmania has been given plenty of rest since her last run and should go well again but others may have more left off their current marks now.
