summary


There’s hardly any pace in this event and it is a great opportunity for BEAUTY DAY to make every post a winner. He went a fraction too hard in the lead at his last outing and with a better-measured ride in front today, he will be hard to beat. CHEERFUL GIGGLES was sound in defeat at his last outing and the step up to 1,800m should suit. However, a lot will depend on the pace as he may be left a little flat-footed. So given I expect that it won’t be fast, it’s not likely to be ideal for him. The same applies to GREAT TREASURE who does possess a good turn of foot. NEW ELEGANCE is more than capable of going close in this event based on his best runs, but first-up against opposition that have had a run will not make it easy. The Purton/Lor combination though is a pretty powerful one when teaming up. This season already they’ve combined for three wins and two second-placings from 10 starts. Beauty Day though is the horse to beat.

BEAUTY DAY can lead this race and I don’t expect he’ll go too hard in front early. MCQUEEN can track Beauty Day with NEW ELEGANCE just off these.
