R8 HEREFORD HANDICAP

Class 3 - 1200m

summary


I have been quite impressed by COMPASSION SPIRIT in recent starts and I think he can cope with the rise in grade tonight. He’s won his last two races well, looks progressive and with a drop in weight of 5kg I think he can find the rating required to win this race. In addition, this is a race where the speed looks like it’ll be genuine, and Zac Purton should be able to position the horse ideally just behind the leaders. SHAMPORT continues to race in good form and he might be able to settle a pair or two closer from barrier 2 tonight. He’s been hitting the line strongly and looks a great price early. CALIFORNIA RAD is another progressive type of horse that won his first two races before not being given much of a chance off a wide trip last time. He was good to the line all things considered and might get a better trip today with less speed inside of him. PING HAI GALAXY got within half-a-length of California Rad when they last met (Race 639) and is a chance again even though the map looks tricky for him. CUE THE MUSIC can receive an economical run from barrier 3 and this will give him every chance to finish in the money. Compassion Spirit is one of the better individual bets on the night and Shamport presents as a bigger-price “over” as well.

speed


The looks to be GOOD speed on paper here with VICTORY IN HAND drawn to sit handy from CALIFORNIA RAD and LORIZ out wider on the track. TELECOM PUMA should be asked to hold a forward spot from barrier 1 with COMPASSION SPIRIT tracking not far away.
