Track: Heavy 9

Lots of intrigue in this race. This actually may well prove to be an exciting form race going ahead because there are at least 4 of them with real talent that will shine through as they mature. I like BRIEFLY here. She’s a lightly raced 4YO mare who has a lot of early speed and her 2nd in a strong maiden when resuming from a very long spell last start was so good. She will benefit a great deal from that run where she led and was run down late by a smart one. Behind her that day is today’s favourite FIRST MOVER who ran on well. But she didn’t run past Briefly and I suspect the same will occur here too. Helping further, Briefly is also trained here so boasts racetrack advantage. Will no doubt run the quinella I think.


Interesting race. I have to follow the money here as this filly ZIPPY POWER might have a fair bit of talent. She’s by a Melbourne Cup winner and she resumes here after having 3 runs last prep. But money has flooded in for her overnight. The telling factor will be where she gets in the run. She has drawn poorly and does have a bit of early dash which means she may be just off pace early and traditionally this means she may be parked a little deep. If young in form rider Dylan Gibbons can get in, she does look very hard to beat.



With 10 scratchings from this race, 8 are left and I think that helps SUPERDEEL who resumes here. He’ll get back and let the natural leader IRRESISTABLE MISS run them along, then hopefully come to the better part of the track and dash late. The mare will take catching so quinella them up.
