R8 LAM TSUEN RIVER HANDICAP

Class 3 - 1200m

summary


GOLDEN DASH has won third-up his last two preparations and when you add the fact that Zac Purton has been aboard this galloper three times for two wins, it is easy to see why the betting public will rally behind him from gate 1. Golden Dash can turn the tables on CALIFORNIA RAD – who is racing very well himself – but a 2kg weight swing and a softer run in transit, with his profile, bodes better for Golden Dash. That said, there are other genuine contenders. CALIFORNIADEEPSHOT has clearly had excuses in recent starts and if ridden in a more measure way, he could easily improve his finishing position. WHAT A LEGEND is another that had excuses on his last start when he wasn’t really tested after straightening, and he appeared to have a bit too offer. His best form, which was earlier this season, rated well enough to win this race, so from a handy barrier, he warrants genuine respect. THE RUNNER comes up against much better opposition but with a light weight and from a good gate, he shouldn’t be too far away and could cause a minor upset.

CALIFORNIADEEPSHOT can potentially lead this event from LITTLE BIRD, CALIFORNIA RAD and SHOUSON. This should be the leading group, although intent will certainly determine settling positions. GOLDEN DASH is in a position to get every chance with WINNING FEELING likely to be close by.
