summary


They are going to have their work cut out trying to beat TIME WARP in the Jockey Club Cup considering he defied the handicap conditions at his last outing when prevailing in Sa Sa Ladies Purse. He should find the lead rather easily again and prove hard to run down. Zac Purton has a great affinity with him and understands how to rate him best in order for him to win. GLORIOUS FOREVER couldn’t beat him when receiving 7.5kg last time, but with Moreira on board and a more positive ride early, he could run an improved race. Tactics will be important and maybe an aggressive ride to roll along at a strong speed could be employed on Glorious Forever? WERTHER has a sound second-up record and improvement is expected from him. He is a classy galloper who might appreciate things if the brothers insist on dueling up in the lead. There’s no doubt the 2000m is more suitable for him than the 1600m at this stage of his career. PAKISTAN STAR hasn’t really delivered so far this season but obviously, he cannot be ignored. He’s a galloper that can make a mockery of any pre-race assessment given his ability, but known “quirks”. EAGLE WAY is racing in stellar form so far this season and if this holds then he could fill a minor spot. He was observed to have made abnormal breathing noises last start however.

speed


I map TIME WARP to be the leader here, although GLORIOUS LEADER and Joao Moreira might be instructed to put more pressure on earlier in the race. RUTHVEN can trail with PAKISTAN STAR likely to sit just off them with HORSE OF FORTUNE.
