Bendigo Race 7: Golden Mile 1600m

18/03/2016: If class tells, Abidewithme storms over the top of this field as this not the Group 1 Rupert Clarke Stakes or the Group 1 Toorak Handicap, however class isn't the only factor. Firstly, the pace could be an issue for her but as stated in my race map comments I am not really sure about the leaders, even though I have Nevis as my D selection. A first up start for both Survived and Velox at this distance has me thinking the respective stables have set the two specifically for this race and judging their overall class it's not hard to see why they can win. Nevis is a key runner as he hasn't really had any luck both runs this campaign. If his leg is fine we have to take notice of his first up distance win off 420 days when beating two reasonable horses (Secret Toybiziness, Excites Zelady) in Adelaide, which is what I have done.

Front Runners Nil.
On Pacers (2) Nevis, (8) Genuine Lad.

Get Back (1) Westsouthwest, (3) Abidewithme, (5) Arch Fire, (6) Zabisco, (9) At First Sight, (11) Big Memory.
PACE COMMENTS Again, I have no natural leader hence Genuine Lad and Nevis should take up the front running position without any major concerns. They will gallop along without any cares or worries and normally I would be really concerned for the back markers. However, when assessing the race map part of the equation the ability of the leaders plays a part and I suspect both leaders might just fall short, especially Genuine Lad. This has me worried about making too many bold predictions about pace in this race so it is better to leave those worries aside and assume it will all be equal.
