summary


We’re back to the all-weather surface for this race 7 and there is plenty of pace mapped for this 1200m event! The two I am most keen on for this contest are GO PUBLIC and RAGING BLITZKRIEG. The former was an excellent winner last start when producing terrific sustained sectionals over the final-600m (35.21) and providing he gets a track where they can run on from off the rail, then he will go close to winning again. RAGING BLITZKRIEG is likely to stalk the pace and be better suited by the race shape. He’s had a turf run, which was adequate and I expect him to be improved for it. All that said, HARBOUR ALERT and ENCORE BOY will work forward from wide gates and take some catching, so if the track is running quick on the inside part then their respective chances are enhanced. Not a race to outlay heavily into, but I’m happy to give Go Public an each way chance.

A strong pressure race here with HARBOUR ALERT, ENCORE BOY and RAGING BLITZKREIG likely to contest for the lead and rail. NUCLEAR POWER might be asked to “kick up” from stall one and BLOCKER DEE can show speed.
