summary


ELUSIVE STATE has seemingly improved since joining the popular South African handler Tony Millard as evidenced by his turf win first-up this season which rated well. If anything, he is even better on this all-weather surface and his recent trial was sound work. Elusive State maps to get a great run and is worthy of outlaying small units on. REMARKABLE has won three of his five starts on this surface and looks to be priced too big in early betting. He’s drawn poorly, but for him finding his feet initially behind having the room to work into his races is important. Last season he showed me that he should be able to win in this class. TANG FLEMING was sound when second at his last start (race 81), but he had all favours then and might have to work harder from the wide draw. Much the same applies to SUMSTREETSUMWHERE who should be working home late. The increase in distance looks like it’ll be a positive and he appears to have come up well in two starts this season. Overall I’m happy to outlay on Elusive State and Remarkable here though.
