There is going to be a HEAP of pace on here with 1,2,3,6,7,9,11 all wanting to be right up there. Does this leave it open for a back marker like Kariba Kariba and Imashadow?? Or will it play into the hands of the leaders as it will be survival of the fittest upfront, there will be a wall of tiring horses thus those at the back may have to go to wide or be blocked for a run. 1 thing I think we can be certain about is Alexander Beetle will cross to lead, he will want the lead!! can he hang on?
Unless it's a blatant front runners track I'd have to think a run on horse for sure.
There is a whisper here for Jeteven. Top run last start and drawn very nicely.
he will do well to cross the toppy gd tough race but i will stick with tango
go the beetle... i think if you work a trifecta around ALEXANDER and GRAN SASSO you would be doing ok... ALLIED FORCE is interesting runner... add BLACKYS JETEVEN and there we go... easy!! 3,5,6,7
Alex is a first up and valley specialist, very Kapero like, I think he will just bolt, get them all off the bit.
its a good race to see if there is any bias for the leaders hey GD... if there is he could be the one... i rated the last at GEELONG the other day and i thought GRAN SASSO was unbeatable in that... they have decided to take this on instead which seems a harder race at level weights... they must be confident!! He should sit off the leader and try and pinch it coming into the staright.. will be a good battle between the two, hopefully they dont bring each other back to the rest of the field!!
I just think backmarkers or horses trying to sit off wont get as clear crack unless they go wide......Who knows!! its going to be one hell of an explosive race, and a good way to start the day!
got on GRAN SASSO on suspicion, 7-1 was too much of a bait for me... runs straight it wins but thats why i didnt tip it with 57kgs... looked much better placed at GEELONG and they wouldnt have got anywhere near it.. thems the breaks!!
