We know SALSA MAN beat ESTROVERTO by 2 lengths last start but this is vastly different. Firstly it’s 300m further which should suit Team Snowden’s Estroverto who is by Pierro, a lot more. Secondly, he got too far back when they last met, and was 10th on bend at Wyong, a spot you just can’t be in at that track. So many things in his favour this time including a 3kg turnaround.
Plenty of speed here but we’ve heard very, very good reports about this unraced filly ASHARANI who is prepared by David Van Dyke. She is by I Am Invincible and she can really scoot. There are a couple here who have exposed form and pretty handy form at that like RAINS APLENTY, but market needs to be monitored closely re this unraced filly….given how strong the word on the street is.
We were all over PIANISSIMO last start and he was 8th, beaten about 8 lengths this very grade and weight. We are on him again because that was a complete forget run. Jock got lost. That’s being kind. Got too far back, horse was set impossible task then copped a very bad check early in straight. After that jock just sat up. Horse should have nearly won. Anyway, let’s see if we’re right this time. Should fly down the outside.
