RACE 5 WILLIAM BARRETT HANDICAP 3:04 PM (1000M)
If you haven’t seen the Lark Hill March 8 trial win of STIRLING ESTATE then we suggest you take a look, with the unraced four-year-old displaying a brilliant turn of foot to defeat Krakka Vision by 7-1/2 lengths, with that galloper subsequently winning easily here on Stakes Day. This probably isn’t the perfect race for STIRLING ESTATE to make his debut, however, trainer James Grieve obviously wanted to 1000-metre event on his home track. As far as trials go, they don’t get much better, and if he holds form STIRLING ESTATE just wins. SCOTTY BEAU is a horse with his share of ability and must rate among the main fancies, while BUSTER’S SECRET has been in sizzling form since joining the Robin Elliott yard. TANJIER is a really nice horse, loaded with ability, however the five-furlong journey is a bit short for him.
Suggested Bet: (6) STIRLING ESTATE to win.
