summary


This shapes as a good race to outlay into with two horses I rate as progressive types at backable odds. SUPERICH was huge in defeat down the straight at his last run when he was slow in to stride (which is becoming a habit) and managed to reel-off some of the best sectionals on the day. He has a bit to offer to my eye and in addition the form around him is strong (e.g. Saul’s Special and Refined Treasure). Much the same can be said for Noble Steed who is first-up, but who also looked like he was better than Class 3 earlier this term. Noble Steed is drawn to advantage and having the “fresh legs” on the scene might also be a positive. It is hard to knock ALCARI who won well at his last outing beating subsequent winner Cruising. MIGHTY MAVERICK is bidding for a hat trick of wins although this looks a little tougher for him than his most recent start. This should prove to be a good form race going forward into next season and I’m firmly with Superich and Noble Steed.

ALL GREAT FRIENDS can set a GOOD speed in front here and lead out ALCARI, LUCKY DOLLAR and BIG FORTUNE. NOBLE STEED maps to settle just behind the main pace, as does MONEYMORE and SUPERICH.
