The Watchdog says ?: High class affair for a midweeker at The Meadows and two high profile kennelmates are expected to dominate. ZIPPING RAMBO (4) is a Group 1 winner and since resuming from a spell in late September he has been both ultra-impressive and very disappointing. Three runs back, he carved out a sizzling 29.44sec when scoring at Sandown Park, however he has been unlucky and disappointing in his subsequent runs. He is always at his best when he can pounce on the lead and dictate terms, so with limited early pace in one and two, and a vacant draw in three, he should get every chance to cross and assume control as they pass the post the first time. We know what he is capable of when in the clear, so if he does lead, he will take a power of beating, However, his kennelmate JARICK BALE (5) is just as talented on his day and with a clean getaway, he will get a nice cart across into the bend and then dial up the pressure in the middle stages. There is nothing between the two runners on the clock, but ‘Rambo’ can crack a little when pressure is applied, so that’s why I’m giving the edge to ‘Jarick’ today. The Delbridge runners are expected to dominate, but we still can’t sleep on the talented TWISTED REALITY (1) and MEPUNGA FELIX (8). Both are more than capable and if the kennelmates happen to bump up front, one of these two could capitalise late.
