summary


There’s not a great deal of depth to this race and MIGHTY MAVERICK looks ready to win now on the back of some solid performances this term. However, the key point is that he steps up to 1400m at his fourth start this preparation – this looks ideal. The booking of Zac Purton is another positive and he should get a nice run in the event from a low draw. SACRED IBIS has won two of three first up and his best numbers suggest he can be competitive in this line up, although, he generally needs some tempo in his races for him to produce his best. It’s doubtful whether he’ll get that here. ALCARI is another stepping up in trip and maybe the tempo of a 1400m race will suit him better, but he also leaves the impression he might be on his mark. RELENTLESS ME is holding his form well and should get a good run from his barrier. Mighty Maverick looks an excellent each way outlay here though.

speed


There doesn’t look to be a great deal of speed on paper here with ALCARI and JING JING WIN potential leaders. It’s very possible another connections will look at the make and ask their riders to be more positive than usual and that could see a horse like BEAUTY ENERGY go forward.
