Horses For The Blackbook From 2019 Stakes Day

We conclude the Melbourne Cup Carnival with Mackinnon Stakes day, where Magic Wand showed her versatility on a four day back up from the Melbourne Cup as well as Nature Strip utterly dominating the VRC Sprint by a large margin.

We have found three horses for you to follow from the meeting.

Flemington Race 6 - Danzdanzdance

She was a moral beaten in this race.

Hugh Bowman had a lap full of horse to give as they straightened up and had nowhere to go as the leader did not necessarily accelerate away from the field making gaps for those in behind.

Once she looked a winning chance and could move out, that run was blocked by Aristocratic Miss down the outside and Greysful Glamour fading on the inside.

This mare is a high class being Group One placed in both New Zealand and Melbourne and a two time Group One winner.
 
You would think with her being in the hands of Chris Waller, she will be pinching a mares race somewhere in the next six months.

I think she will head for a spell now and be aimed at the Queen Of The Turf in Sydney, a race restricted to the fillies and mares over the Randwick mile.

Likely Target: Queen Of The Turf

Flemington Race 7 - Noble Boy

He was brilliant in the Chatham, storming home in what was not the best part of the ground on the day.

This horses main aim this preparation was the Kosciuszko in Sydney where he ran fourth first up.

Next preparation I think he will be set for some city grade races in Sydney over 1400m where he will prove more than competitive off of this run.

I think he is a horse that you would want to be backing third and fourth up into his preparation as he seems to find his absolute top with more racing under his belt.

Any race where he can slip in on the minimum, I think he can certainly make his presence felt.

Likely Target: All Aged Stakes

Flemington Race 8 - Life Less Ordinary

This bloke is hard to catch but he showed in this race how good he is.

He has matched motors with the likes of Hartnell and Melody Belle who are the highest quality horses we see in New Zealand and Australia.

He had to use up a lot of gas between the 600m and 400m to put himself into the race and has posted a very quick split of 11.15 for this section. 

He then matched the finishing burst of Melody Belle for the 400m to 200m split, closing off at around a quarter of a length slower than her 11.05.

Considering the amount of energy he has used, he still finished off his last 200m well with an 11.65, just one length slower than Melody Belle.

We know Chris Waller is a fan of taking his horses to Perth for a race such as the Kingston Town, which is where I think this bloke may head to as he finishes off his campaign.

Likely Target: Kingston Town Classic
