Very intriguing contest mainly because Chris Waller has 3 runners and they all look among the main chances. They are ANTONIO PADRE who is 3rd up and ready to fire, OLYMPIC who looks the best of his trio based on talent shown of late and BACCHUS who showed some improvement last start for 5th. But BANDERSNATCH led all the way to win easier race by a very big space and looks a star in the making.
ULUSABA resumes from a spell and has a huge weight to deal with. But was a two-time winner in similar races when last in work. This is a tad short but will go forward and is ready to run well. PLENTY was terrific first up when leading and a good 2nd this grade. Is consistent and rates highly now fitter. Can sit behind the speed too if needs be. MS RODARTE is 3rd up and is ready to run a place this grade.
PERFECT PITCH is on her home track here and is in great nick. Outclassed in the Wagga Guineas when a battling 4th. Goes very well this grade and is ready to run a blinder. TIME RAID has only had 6 starts but is already building a reputation for honesty. Placed in similar race at Gosford last start. Is very fit. REXX probably leads and did that to easily win maiden last start. This is stronger but is on the improve curve.
Tip: PERFECT PITCH
BAJAN GOLD has been backed at past 3 starts but hasn’t placed. Is good enough to get home late and is very fit but is a disappointment. Easier here so last chance. SOLDIER OF LOVE has won 3 of past 5 and is very honest. Great attributes for this grade. Drawn the fence so gets the run of the race. CALIFORNIA LONGBOW is an interesting galloper. Doesn’t have much speed but is strong, determined and getting better race sense as he ages. Big show.
Tip: CALIFORNIA STRONGBOW
Fascinating race. Lots of chances. How good is the unbeaten NANGAMI? We’ll see here. Should be on speed and has drawn well. Led all way to win easier race at Gosford last start. LEAMI ASTRAY is a model of consistency and is right in this. Hasn’t won for a while but seems to place every run. DREAMING FOR MORE is rising a very long way in grade but first up win was solid so needs to be respected.
Tip: LEAMI ASTRAY
VEGA broke a very long run of outs to win similar race last start and is on home track here. Sure to fire up again. SEABABE has been up a long while and has drawn well. Is always there at the end and there is a lot to like about her recent runs. PRIMITIVO hit the line well for 3rd in similar grade last start when 2nd up. Fitter now.
DESTINY’S OWN is a pretty consistent type but this weight is as far up the scale as he can go. Saying that, lumped similar when 3rd first up this grade and the run was excellent. Has claims. CHARRETERA is the in form horse and rising talent. Drew well, sat just off speed and sprinted too quickly to win a very, very similar race to this last start with 57kg. Goes up 3kg but has a lot of potential. GUIPARE is a Godolphin horse and Godolphin often win the last race. And this one will go close.
