Kensington Blackbookers - Wednesday February 19, 2020

Eight races were run on the Kensington circuit at Royal Randwick on Wednesday with arguably the highlight of the day coming up in Race 5 with the very impressive import Mugatoo making it two from two in Australia

He's a progressive type that should only improve as the distances increase and is capable of pinching a nice race this campaign.

We've listed three runners to follow which all went around earlier in the program.

Kensington Race 2 - Twice As Special

Looks yet another honest galloper by Testa Rossa does this three-year-old who arrived here second-up following an even fresh effort in a decent maiden on January 27.

With a 33.79 last 600m, this filly peeled of that fasted last six furlongs of the event after conservative tactics early and after being given time to wind up in the straight, she got stronger as it wore on.

Off that effort, Twice As Special appears to be looking for 1200m now at least and with the performance of Eye See Things on debut the start prior, I suspect the form will hold up.

Likely Target: They should be looking for at least a six furlong maiden next start

Kensington Race 3 - Moana Jewel

Found her perfect race here third-up did this daughter of Ocean Park and to put it simply, she was an absolute tragedy beaten.

Stepping up to the seven furlongs following an encouraging outing at Canterbury, she landed in the box seat early under Rachel King from barrier one with that inside alley ultimately proving the undoing where she couldn't get a passage home when it mattered.

Still early in the prep and with the second-up performance coming off the back of a freshen-up, there should still be some upside there and with a low rating of 64, there's plenty of options around.

Likely Target: 1400m does look the right distance to stay at.

Kensington Race 4 - Reaching

Among a handy maiden field where the form has already stacked up around the winner of Race 7 via Sea Of Life, this superbly bred three-year-old should be the best runner to come out of this race.

By the Japanese champion Deep Impact and out of the four time group one winning mare Alinghi, there's always going to be attention and expectation with this filly, however the results aren't far away.

With comfortably the fastest last 600m of this race (34.22) after getting back and launching from the rear, she should be breaking through shortly and does have the scope to get over more ground eventually.

Likely Target: Do they stay at seven furlongs for now or step up a little?
