DAY RACING HORSES TO FOLLOW: FLEMINGTON: 11-03-2017

 

 

Racing stayed at Flemington and very similar patterns were produced from last week. Rail and leaders. Hence, last week was definitely no fluke and the inside section is going to continue to be superior if it is mowed shorter.

 

 

A plus is that we just need to get the speed map right to be a good chance of backing a winner is seems.

 

 

Humidor claimed the Australian cup, bolting home in the worst part of the track, to give our black book another Group 1 winner! Ground break and Oregon’s day (fastest last 800m in her race) did it tough against the pattern, with the former still being a touch disappointing.

 

 

RANK OUTSIDER SELECTION – INSPECTOR: Some one forgot to tell him he was sent out as the rank $301 outsider in the G1 Newmarket handicap because he ran on extremely well for 7th.

 

 

On paper, the $301 probably looked a touch overs given he ran on for 4th behind He or She, Hooked and Zebrinz last start but this is one of the highest quality sprints on the calendar and he is only an 85 rater on the VIC bench marks.

 

 

Settling right out the back in the last couple 12th off a slow tempo he was entitled to finish much further back but his sectionals were outstanding, clocking 33.01s for the last 600m. This was equal race fastest with other outsider Voodoo Lad ($17) who ran on for second.

 

 

As previously mentioned, he is only an 85 rater so his options are well and truly open and will be right down in the weights if kept in handicaps around this class. Wouldn’t be surprised to see this 6YO gelding by California Dane pop up in a stakes race over 1400m or even out to the mile.

 

 

Record: 44:5-6-5

Where to next? 1400m-1600m Open Handicap

 

 

SLICK SECTIONALS SELECTION – PURE PRIDE: Drifting slightly from around the $5.50 to the $6.50 mark throughout betting. This was no surprise given the pattern of the day and her jumping from gate 12.

 

 

However, she overcame these difficulties somewhat to run a very eye catching 4th. Settled down some 3 wide, just off mid-field and made her run some 10 off the rail with 7 lengths to make up on the leaders who had it all their own way.

 

 

She certainly made a good go of it however, clocking a solid 34.49s final 600m (3rd race fastest) given how wide she came.

 

 

Her run seemed to bottom out slightly at the 200m mark whilst still running on, which would suggest that her next start second up off a short 3 week freshen will see her strip fitter. Sticking to the mile against the mares will probably be her go too.

 

 

Record: 10:1-2-1
