R2. Tony Cook Handicap - Ascot 12 November 2016

Second-Up, Blinkers ON

Two on top selections both come from the same race with Tradesman winning from Scales of Justice who has since come out and won, now heading into the Group 3 RJ Peters. Outlaw Pete was struggling to keep up coming round the corner and really hit the line well, second-up stats read very well and with blinkers re-added to race gear he should position up nicely midfield with cover. Universal Law comes from the same race and was held up at crucial stages on a couple of different occasions, nothing major but for a horse who needs a long time to wind up it took its toll on his winning hopes. Pounamu is a places specialist and a non-winner, he'll run another good race without winning. Who's to Blame is one to include in novelties. Taking on Star Exhibit from the inside gate with a claiming apprentice aboard.
