Mare has progressed well in both starts to date, was good at Hamilton behind a winner I have a bit of an opinion on. Race rated ok for the day and suggest from the inside draw/stepping to 1400m she’ll be quite handy to the tempo. Like her at her peak here.
Really like the way this colt has trialled up this prep, recent hitout was here 10 days ago. Jumped well/snagged but picked up nicely under minimal riding and basically went to the line hard held. Had plenty to give and looks very well placed to run a big race fresh. Draws to be tractable in the run and has the services of H.Bowman.
Mare was ok/fair at Rosehill three weeks back in good company, sat midfield but just couldn’t go with them. Drops back to a midweek-class event/mares race here and draws for the run of the race. Is the class of this lot and happy to back with confidence. Sticks 1400m.
Former Victorian who won well on debut up north, was dominant pulling away from them at the Sunshine Coast and now steps to the 1350m for the first time (should suit). J.Orman claims 2kg which clearly makes him the horse to beat at the weights, draws for a lovely suck run and should again be given every chance to run them down in the straight.
