In depth


A competitive contest gets proceedings underway but the principals look to be Goose Naval Force and Trigger Guard and the vote is given to Royal Wedding . The selection was placed on the flat hails from a yard that can ready a debutante winner over hurdles and he is taken to score especially as the step up in trip looks sure to suit. Royal Wedding was a fair third last time out and if the first time tongue tie brings about more improvement he will not be far away.. Trigger Guard was a fair third behind Snow Tempest last time and is another with place claims but he gave the impression he would be suited by a longer trip on that occasion and for that reason is opposed. Of the remainder Piran is another that showed promise on his debut and could go well at a price but while Naval Force showed ability on his debut but the fact that he already has cheep pices on is off putting and in a race where the market will be all important for the winner we return to Goose Chase who looks a value bet in an open affair.
