The rain has continued to fall across the Sydney region, so we are playing on a very wet surface at Hawkesbury, however, we think we have found three horses that will be perfectly suited to the conditions here today.
Hawkesbury is racing on a Heavy 8 with the rail out 3m from the 1300-400m, true the remainder.
MUNICH looked unlucky when narrowly beaten at Canterbury last start and looks primed to atone for that narrow defeat here today. Will look to get the run of the race behind the fast tempo and be saved for one last crack at them in the straight. Has a good turn of foot and will charging home late. Huge chance.
Drawn to get the run of the race, NEAPOLITAN (BEST BET) looks perfectly placed to bounce back into the winner’s circle here today. Will strip fitter third-up and sure to be in this for a long way. Hasn’t been tested in these wet conditions but breeding suggests it shouldn’t be an issue and happy to stick with this Bjorn Baker mare here today. Drop in class a big plus along with Jean Van Overmeire’s claim.
Sticking with the topweight KING TOMLOLA who excels in these wet conditions and looks well placed to rack up the hat-trick of victories here today. Settled midfield before pulling away for an impressive 1.3 length victory on this track a fortnight ago. Has drawn to get the run of the race and looks the one they all need to beat. Key player.
