Caulfield Race 6: David Jones Cup 2000m

16/10/2015: Stratum Star drops in grade here and has been absolute model of consistency in recent times. This Weir trained runner won at Group 1 level this track 2 runs back and followed up with a 3rd here in the Group1 Toorak behind Lucky Hussler. Only narrowly beaten his only run this journey and from gate 2 should be given every chance by Mark Zahra to add another Group race to his resume. Fenway is a high class mare with a good record this journey and is proven this class albeit against her own gender. Draws well and looks suited this race and gets her chance to prove herself against the males. Sadler's Lake is a winner this distance and is also proven this level, a little disappointing last time out in the Epsom at Randwick but raced further back than expected and did pull hard during the race. Likely to find the lead here and may very well give them all something to catch. Former Hong Kong galloper Dibayani performed strongly at Group 2 level his first 2 runs this country and although disappointing last time handles this distance and can easily bounce back.

Front Runners (7) Sadler's Lake.

PACE COMMENTS Tipping Sydney raider Sadler's Lake to adopt the front running position here, but no surprise if either Leebaz or Fenway were to take it up in front. All of this trio have led at various times in their career but none have led with enough regularity to be tagged a dead set leader. Should be enough speed from this trio to ensure a genuine overall pace. Early market favourite Stratum Star should get a gun run from an inside alley just off the pace brigade.
