Class 5 - 1800m


Happy Valley (M87) - Wednesday, 15 July 2020

summary


BUNDLE OF ENERGY is an easy horse to like on the back of his last couple of efforts that have seen him finish runner-up in this grade, and this race is no harder. The wide gate will not make Zac Purton’s task easy, but if he finds a half-decent position, one-off the rail with cover, just behind midfield, then he can land the main spoils. Of course it should be noted again, that Bundle Of Energy is zero wins from 23 starts and that isn’t for lack of luck of opportunities to get the job done. BABY STORM steps up to 1800m, which looks a positive move. Given this is his second run in Class 5 and he gets the 4.5 kg claim, he could easily reach a new peak and shapes as a shade of overs in early betting. GREAT SMART is clearly in his best form all season but has also been a touch flattered by the race tempo and track pattern on his last couple of starts. Nonetheless, in a thin race, he should run well again. TURF BRILLIANT was sound on the all-weather last time but his effort earlier this season over the Valley mile when 5th to Flash Famous was good enough to suggest this race is within his grasp. POLYMER LUCK is an interesting runner as he has been horrible his last few starts, but this is a much weaker race than what he has been facing and it’s an event that might end up being sedately run in the early stages, which would suit him.

MONEY MARSHAL and POLYMER LUCK are the runners that can show speed to take up forward positions early, with BRING IT ON drawn to feature prominently as well. GREAT SMART and KEEP WINNING can both secure good positions behind these horses from BABY STORM.
