It's a tricky end to the card but PRIVATE EQUITY is back to her last winning rating and despite no for on this going to speak of this looks a weak race so she keeps the vote ahead of Sure Fire and Resplendent Ace. Still unexposed the selection has been out of form since that score in November. This though will be the first time she's raced off the same weight as that victory and she can score racing receiving weight from most. Sure Fire makes a handicap debut and might not be that badly treated based on the pick of his maiden form but none of that exactly jumps off the page. Resplendent Ace looks well-in based on his claimer runs with Doubnov but that one isn't a great yard-stick, however, as mentioned this is a weak race. Group Leader has been well held in all of his recent starts including over hurdles but we can assume a better run is expected with Frankie Dettori booked to ride. Strong Storm and Bromhead should show up at some point off their weights but in a puzzle that would have the best a MENSA struggling we go for Private Equity.
