Race 2 is a Rating 70+ and DARK ASSAULT will be hard to beat back at his pet track of Albany. The three-year-old is unbeaten in two starts at the venue and was a winner over the 1200m here before tackling a No-Metro-Wins race at Ascot on April 21 and placing 4th behind Son Son. He went 0.3 lengths slower than standard in that race, which is 4.5 lengths better than the next best last start figures of any runner, while he drops 6kg off that run. He gets out to the 1500m for the first time but has been solid enough at the end of his recent runs, while the likelihood of a wet track is a bonus and he has drawn perfectly in barrier 5.

We stretch out over the 1940m trip and SNIP’N’TUCK shapes as a player for the Adam Durrant stable. The three-year-old has won two of her past five and last stepped out at Ascot on April 28 over the 1600m, running 5th behind The Verdict. In that race she settled back in the small field and they went slow early on. She produced the fastest 400m-200m split before the leaders pinched a break and she missed out by just over two lengths in the bunched finish. She went two lengths slower than standard and anything like that should measure up very well here, while she can continue to improve as she steps up in trip. Clint Johnston-Porter rides and the pair should get the run of the race from barrier 2.

NURHACI can make it back to back wins when he steps out in the final event of the day at Albany. The four-year-old looks to have returned in good order and resumed with a win at Ascot in a Class 1 on April 2, leading all the way to hold on from Just A Pinch, while there was a bit of a gap back to the 3rd placegetter, Ginger Knight. The runner-up defeated Billy Ray at his next start and Nurhaci went nearly five lengths faster than standard benchmark, which is more than seven lengths better than the next best last start figures of any runner. That figure is also better than what any of the horses in this race have produced in the past two years. At his last campaign he improved his figures between his first and second runs, while he has the early speed to overcome the tricky draw. With the fitness at his second run, he can step it up to the 1100m and is the one they have to beat.
