I think I’ll be on TERZO MILLENNIO in this. He was scratched from a winnable race a few days ago so his stablemate had a better shot in it. She faded, so plan came unstuck, but he looks a lot tougher than her. He is by Pierro and he may just have to suck it up and sit a little deep here from this gate. He was a solid finishing 3rd last start at the Gold Coast at just his 2nd start. May have a lap on these.
Tip: TERZO MILLENNIO
It has been quite the rise for the unbeaten LOUDAZ but he just keeps jumping the bar put in front of him. Drew off the track on debut yet finished like a train from a mile back to win over 1000m, then up to Cl 1 grade last start and under 60.5kg did exactly the same thing. Much stronger grade here but he looks really progressive and he has a terrific pedigree too. He’s by Written Tycoon.
I was all over a horse called LAMINGTON DRIVE last start over a mile in this very class. He sat back in around 6th most of the way but he ground home steadily to grab 2nd, making ground right up and through the line. This start he’s up a further 250m. He’s trained by Archie Alexander who is a very astute trainer of stayers. So on that basis, combined with the fact the horse is in form and now very fit, I’m on for a bit today. ALLUDERE was a strong mdn winner last start so can run a place too.
