2.00 York: Class 4 Nursery, 7f
These kind of races are tough to work out sometimes, but I can’t help feeling that Dark Defender has an exceptional chance to win this race, given that he is one of few who has proven his worthiness of his current mark. He won a pretty deep 6f sprint here at York earlier the season but didn’t enjoy and luck in his two subsequent starts.
He is however one who steps up in trip now and who should on pedigree very much enjoy seven furlongs. There is good chance that the new trip brings out more improvement, and if that is the case indeed, he’ll be very hard to beat here.
