Trainer Mark Walker comments here:

LORD ROBERTO worked very strongly this morning ahead of his start this coming Sunday 6th in the Class 4 event on the Polytrack. He has come along very nicely this preparation and I could not be more pleased with him. Three weeks ago, I regarded this coming start as merely a lead up run, but given the quality of his trackwork, his excellent barrier draw and having the Singapore Champion jockey aboard, I think that with luck in the running and a good tempo up front, he will be a very strong each way chance. The race plan will be to let him jump nicely, get a nice position in behind the speed and then try and finish over them in the straight.
