Pre-race:

I have backed Barons Spy and Sgt Schultz, both at 12s early price, with a win double at those odds. I am already considering what to spend the money on :-)

Barons Spy ran well in a higher grade last time and is dropped in weight today. He should handle the distance and going easily.

Sgt Schultz is apparently well handicapped on turf and was beaten last time by a progressive horse in a true run race. He hasn’t won on turf yet but has come second three times on today’s going.

Post-race:

It appears Barons Spy didn’t handle the ground at all. Sgt Schultz also came down the field.
