HULK has been runner up in 2 races thus far and that is good enough to win this. Trialled really well last week in a strong trial. CONTANGO is bred to like this journey and has had 2 pretty impressive trials. looks talented. LUVOIR shocked with strong finish to place this grade on debut. Change of rider and experience make him a hope here.
This is a good race. Many promising types coming through. ALMAHERI is getting fitter and better with racing. Looms large. ACHONDRITE has the rails draw and terrific run this grade when resuming for 3rd. Fitter now and rates highly. EL GUERROUJ made good ground late in an easier race on debut when eye-catching 2nd. Lightweight with a place shot.
Sam Clenton may have a really good day. She rides HIGH POWER here. He’s a good old boy who doesn’t win many but always runs honestly and is very, very fit. Ran on bravely to grab 3rd in a much stronger race last start. WAKA keeps rising in grade but also keeps winning. Does look like a stayer of the future. KEEP UP is another consistent non-winner but he does run on and is fit enough now.
Tip: HIGH POWER
Back in February, CUBA led all the way to claim a BM70 race. When resuming from a spell last start in a BM 70 race again, he led until the final few bounds. You’d have to think he’d be fitter and stronger this time. He beat LANCASTER BOMBER home by a nose that day but that horse gets half a kilo help here. Should finish right near Cuba again. LIFETIME QUEST is very honest and very consistent. Puts in every race and drawn well enough here. Good race.
Fascinating race. JUVENTUS has a fair first-up record and resumes here. Was racing well without winning in better grade when last in work. Has had 2 useful trials to get him right. BEL DIABLO has been served quite well at the weights following past 2 starts which have been wins. Probably gets out and leads these. Is very fit. TENORINO is another in form and likes to run on. No weight on his back.
Tip: BEL DIABLO
Tough race with pretty much all of them having some claim. KNOWITALL JACK looks smart and could very easily make his way through the grades. Won similar race last start and gets 1.5kg claim this time. Big show. DA POWER is another very promising type – won 2 of past 3 this time up. Will hit the line hard. HIGH LOW BET was in a winnable race last week but was scratched for this. Watch.
Tip: KNOWITALL JACK
Hard to go past SPANISH DREAM. Before spell she was too good in a BM 70. Since the spell, has won a barrier trial quite impressively. Big weight but has speed and class. TRANSMITTER showed a neat return to form with a strong finishing 3rd tougher grade last start. Sure to fly home. OUR REVENUE is from Canberra and is very honest. No surprise to see her, 2nd up, run a blinder. Big chance.
