How can you go past this perfectly named youngster called ADDOCARR? This is his 2nd race start and the son of Sizzling was responsible for a bottler on debut getting home well for 3rd this grade at Ipswich. In top stable and is much better for the run plus has Jimmy Byrne to guide him around the paddock. PHOENIX GLOBAL to run on into 2nd. Josh Addo-Carr would be proud of a horse like this named after him.
Surely life balances out for the connections of tough front runner SURPRISE BULLET in this. He’s had 9 starts for just one win and 5 placings. This time up, led at Sunny Coast and was beaten a neck, then led same track over 2200m and was 2nd, beaten a length before leading until final bound in tougher Ipswich 3YO race…again finishing 2nd. If left alone, this is most definitely his day. Plate conditions loom as his biggest advantage.
Tip: SURPRISE BULLET
