An enterprising race for 3YO’s. RE EDIT is unbeaten and bred to love this journey. Got back and won his city maiden impressively. Chance. Is trained by Chris Waller and drawn perfectly to get run of the race. HELGA is tough and finished very soundly to win a strong maiden last start too. She gets 3kg allowance today and that is a big help. WORD FOR WORD is strong and will hit line gamely. Is still a maiden but has talent.
Tip: RE EDIT
PLENTY is running out of friends as he seems to have had plenty of chances and still not won a race yet. Only plodded when 6th this grade last start after being off the pace and given every chance. This is slightly easier and has drawn well. Last chance. LONELY HEART has had 3 starts thus far: a 7th, then a 5th, then a 3rd….that train of thought means a win here! HAIKILI is resuming but did place this grade when last in work and may be back better and bigger. Watch market.
Tip: LONELY HEART
Fascinating race because chances are few and far between. LEGISLATION hasn’t fired a shot past 2 starts but the grade looks to suit. ALART is a classy mare on her day and is 3rd up with a 3kg claim. That brings her right into play while FAKE may make the news as she’s drawn well and trialed well. Watch market.
A very even affair. Any one of them could win. HAND IT IN is a good stayer in this grade and is 3rd up today, in at a trip that suits. Will be making ground late. ALLCASH was huge last start making up a mile of ground late to grab 3rd this grade on a track that suited front-runners. Looks the one to beat from his stablemate IVY’S COURT who is racing well this grade of late placing 4 of past 5.
Tough race. LOVE SHACK BABY is in fine form. Stormed to victory this trip and grade last start with 58.5kg coming from off the pace to win impressively. Up 2kg here but effort suggested he will take beating again. SMILING MANOLITO led and was run down similar race last start. Is in better at the weights and track suits leaders. CHARLIE CHAP will be big odds but looks well placed here after claim. This more suitable than 6th last start.
Tip: LOVE SHACK BABY
SILENT GENERAL, YOU MAKE ME SMILE AND INTENSE FOCUS are all 2nd up in this and are all well placed on their best form. Silent General scores a weight relief but Intense Focus was strong late when resuming.
Tip: SILENT GENERAL
MILEAGE is a pretty fair mare. She resumed from a long spell last start similar race and after squeezing between runners hit line hard for 3rd. Presumably is fitter now and has drawn to get a cozy run. LADY OF SHALOTT has drawn poorly and is 2nd up. But does seem to have a lot of talent. Will be running on. APERITIF won first up last campaign in maiden. Resumes here in a harder race but drawn perfectly. Is capable of going well while fresh.
