Mark Them Down: Memsie Stakes Day Review

The first Victorian Group One of the season went the way of Scales Of Justice who keeps an unbeaten record at Caulfield. 

There were a few great runs on the card overall and we took a look at some of the runners that mightn't have saluted but did enough to suggest a win could be in the offing.

Caulfield Race 4 No. 3 Steel Prince

This was certainly an eye-catching run from the back of the field in a race where he would be well short of his best.

There was a hard drift in the market on him, and although he did not win, he looks one to follow. 

Steel Prince boasted some of the quickest sectionals in the race looking like he is ready for 2000m.

Having already been guaranteed a Melbourne Cup start after winning the Andrew Ramsden Stakes in May, it is just a matter of placing this gelding in the right lead up races to peak on Cup day.

His next assignment will likely be in the Naturalism Stakes on September 21 before possibly the Caulfield Cup on his way to the Melbourne Cup.

Likely Target: Naturalism Stakes

Race 5 No. 4 Super Seth

He lived up to the Freedman hype with an impressive win on Saturday. 

Although he had the perfect run with a building tempo, he showed an explosive turn of foot his last 200m clocking in 11.24. 

He has now won three from four starts and can seem to run on or sit handy which will play into his favour come some bigger races in the future.

The Freedman stable have stated he is one of their best horses and if this is the case, he is one to follow into the Caulfield Guienas.

Likely Target: Caulfield Guineas

Race 9 No. 1 Night's Watch

Night's Watch put together a brilliant run considering the little luck he had. 

He came into the race off the back of an impressive trial in Sydney, but being seven lengths back on the fence; it was never going to end well.

He is the type of horse that should progress through those middle distance grades again and end up in an Epsom and possibly Cox Plate. He looks to have come back well and there's no doubt with more luck he would have saluted on Saturday.

Look out for his second up run.

Likely Target: Epsom Handicap
