Feehan Stakes 2021 Tips

Feehan Stakes 2021 Best Bet - Superstorm

I blackbooked this horse after his PB Lawrence run which was huge in defeat when running fourth to Sierra Sue who he meets again here on the same weight scale.

The difference this time is that this horse is much better suited second-up and now up to the mile where we have seen him place in an Australian Guineas and All-Star Mile, two races that only good horses run well in.

His question will be how he handles The Valley and how the track will be playing, but I am more than happy to be following him into this race and all through the prep.

Feehan Stakes 2021 Next Best Bet - Elephant

I am sure this galloper is going to measure up to WFA at this level at least after an impressive win at Caulfield last start, keeping his unbetaen record in-tact.

Elephant has a nice turn-of-foot and looks as if he will be suited up to the mile now, with of course the test being this level as he is yet to face them.

He has been nominated for the Cox Plate, so there is no doubt that this was an aim and the preferred route.

Feehan Stakes 2021 Value Bet - Nonconformist

He got backed and was checked all the way down the straight in the PB Lawrence, so although is may look a touch disappointing on paper, the run was okay.

Nonconformist definitely needs to lift to beat both Superstorm and Sierra Sue out of that race, but second-up he should be much fitter.

He has been vulnerable second-up previously which is my main query, but the class is there at this level if he is right on the day.
