Ascot Race 8: James Boag's Premium Railway Stakes 1600m

20/11/2015: Local star Black Heart Bart has been unbeatable here in W.A. the last 12 months and although yet to win past 1420m has been placed up to 1800m and looks well credentialed to annex his biggest career win by taking out this Group 1 event. It will be heart in the mouth stuff for backers as this gelding has just got home by small margins at his last 3 wins but nevertheless just seems to keep finding the line and getting the job done. No distance problems for Real Love who has won a Perth Cup here over 2400m. Terrific effort to win 1st up beating home subsequent winner Hazzabeel and is unbeaten in two previous 2nd up runs. Has the services of Damian Oliver and looks a huge threat. Stablemate Delicacy is a dual Group 1 winner and rider William Pike has opted for her over Real Love. Needed the run when only 0.6 lengths adrift of Black Heart Bart when racing 1st up and is a winner her only other 2nd up run. Won 6 on end to round out last prep and is another who must rate as a major player. Expect to see Messene utilise a good draw and race much closer in the run than last few. Hasn’t won for a while but is a dual winner this distance and ran a great 4th to Winx in the Group 1 Epsom at Randwick 2 runs back. Rates a genuine each way chance at nice odds and should be ahead of several other fancies when they flatten for the run home. Hazzabeel will race prominent and should give backers a good sight for their investment, stole winning break on turn last time and might try similar tactics here. Has won this distance and is another chance in this open affair. Mr Utopia has won twice and a 2nd in 3 runs this distance including 1 this track. Would need a career best to take this out but with the right run should be around the placings.

PACE COMMENTS Lead here will most likely come from either Fuchsia Bandana or Hazzabeel who has drawn poorly in gate 14 but may push hard for the lead to try to replicate his last start effort when led throughout kicking away on the home turn. Messene is expected to be ridden closer than in recent starts and make full advantage of gate 2. Local star Black Heart Bart should drift back as too will other fancy Real Love. Stablemate Delicacy draws wide and will look to settle just forward of the listed backmarkers. Assessed pace here is genuine so all runners should get their chance.
