Flemington - Race 2 No. 8 September Run ($2.90)
Flemington - Race 2 No. 8 September Run
Ultra strong fresh in the Cap D'antibes, her form has since been franked with the second horse, Swats That, coming out and winning at Moonee Valley last week.
She draws wide, she is a track and trip winner, she drops 1.5kg from last start all factors that can see her going back-to-back at Flemington.
She meets Mihaaj .5kg worse off at the weights, but she went straight past that filly last start, while Minhaaj had a very economical run in transit.
Watch down the outisde of the track as September Run comes home like a steam train.
Eagle Farm - Race 4 No. 4 Montez
This Maryann Brosnan-trained gelding was receiving no luck at all this preparation before making amends at Ipswich last week, thrashing his opposition by over six-lengths.
After missing the start first-up and caught in traffic second-up, everything went to plan for the four-year-old More Than Ready gelding at Ipswich, settling behind the speed and powering away.
Running the 1350m in 1-20.49, it was over two seconds quicker than the other 1350m race on the same day, and boasting a fifth place behind Supergiant in the Group 3 Gunsynd, stepping up to the mile will only suit.
Drawn to sit midfield off the rail, Montez looks perfectly placed to record consecutive victories with Robbie Fradd aboard.
Eagle Farm - Race 8 No. 2 Desert Lord
This David Vandyke-trained gelding is a different horse on top of the ground and he showed that first-up, demolishing his opposition over this track.
Settling off the speed, the former Hawkes trained galloper trialled extremely well in the lead up to his first-up assignment, and transferred that form to the track, running 1200m in an electric 1-08.81 EASED DOWN!
Boasting form around the likes of Kolding and Fierce Impact during last spring, Desert Lord is drawn perfectly to land midfield from barrier six, and enters this race fit after a strong tick over trial.
Desert Lord is the best bet at Eagle Farm on Saturday as he aims for consecutive victories.
Randwick Race 8 No. 2 Mugatoo
The highly talented 2. Mugatoo put some staying myths to bed when carrying 59kg for a slashing last start Newcastle Cup victory over 2300m and appears to have The Metropolitan at his mercy especially with the scratching of Shared Ambition.
He draws favourably again for Kerrin McEvoy and dropping two kilos for a contest that's not necessarily all that much harder, the Kris Less-trained import can display his superior turn of foot once more.
Flemington - Race 8 No. 5 Madam Rouge
She has been crying out for a spacious track with two good runs this campaign where she was out the back of the field and did not have the greatest of passages, or the track pattern was against her.
Flemington is what excites me about her chances, having the whole straight to wind herself up and show whatshe has promised to do this campaign, which is put a stakes win on the board.
She is a Stradbroke place getter, and was a Flemington place getter in 2018, so she will have some affiliation with the track.
If she is wide and seeing clear air at the top of the straight, she can give this field wind burn with her turn of foot.
