The Instant Expert report shows that Dynamo Walt is just reasonably well suited to today’s conditions, having four sections of amber and one of red. There are others in the field that look better suited to this race, but no horse that really stands out.
From looking at the Pace report we can see that early leaders here over this distance have an excellent record, with 26.32% of them going on to win the race, for a level stakes profit of 1.92.
Dynamo Walt is usually held on to and waited with but it will be interesting to see if they try a more forceful ride given the advantage this track appears to give to horses that are right up with the pace.
