summary


YOUNG LEGEND (SID) might well be a play in this event. Both he and KEY WITNESS come from the same event (race 261) in mid-December. Young Legend performed well there and should have finished even closer but for being held-up for a large portion of the straight. He looks ready now and is drawn to get a soft sit on the rail behind the main speed. Key Witness might find his back in this contest and can also figure, although he lacks early speed. JING JING WIN comes from a high-rating event won impressively by Regency Legend and although he was beaten four lengths, that effort would see him right in the finish here. He hasn’t won out of turn and often hasn’t delivered up to market expectation but is generally quite consistent. GENTLE BREEZE leaves the impression that he will be suited by the step up to 1,200m but the wide draw is off-putting.

LUCKY DOLLAR can lead this event from FLYING BONUS. GENTLE BREEZE is drawn wide but might press forward and could find a spot close to the leaders. JING JING WIN has tactical speed to find a good spot. YOUNG LEGEND is drawn to potentially take closer order than in recent starts although he can take a bit to muster.
