No chance with the easy winner - but still a decent e/w run. Original quote: "Akkapenko - Very competitive race for the time of year with 16 runners. Will love the good ground and we feel the step up in trip is a plus too. 3lbs lower than last time and a light weight here helps, but there are several fair-looking types at the top end of the handicap that might still be hard to beat. Having said that, the horse is well and has come on for his last run (off a small break) so if he improves for the step up in trip is not without small place claims here 1 1/2 stars."
