R9 PEACOCK HANDICAP

summary


This is a tough race to finish the card and a number of these entrants went around against each other on May 9, in Race 642 over the course and distance when TOUCH OF LUCK was successful. On that occasion, LONDON LUCKYSTAR was a $3.10 favourite and it couldn’t have gone more wrong for him. He deserves another chance, as he was unlucky on his prior run as well. He has another horrible draw to contend with, so gets few favours, but is worth a speck at a decent price. UNITE SPIRIT made good ground in that event, while Touch Of Luck carries 2.5kg more but still has claims to be competitive. I expect that PING HAI TREASURE will strip fitter again for that outing, and whilst I was happy to take him on there given he was second-up and his bodyweight hadn’t trimmed much, now he seems to be “more ready” if that is any guide. ENFOLDING his holding his form well and probably needs a good ride to win again, but he has the right man aboard to do that job. I’m backing Ping Hai Treasure and London Luckystar at their prices to win the last race.

Bit of a muddling map to end the card with CALIFORNIA ARGENT the potential leader from TURIN REDSTAR working forward from out wider. TOUCH OF LUCK is drawn to get a perfect run in the trail from PING HAI TREASURE and LA YAKFI out wider on the track.
