Caulfield Race 7: Hyland Colours Underwood Stakes 1800m

25/09/2015: Usually, Group 1 horses win Group 1 races and there is no doubt Fawkner is a Group 1 horse. I took him on first up based on his massive 312 day break and I thought he would be fitter on WS Cox Plate day. My wallet is still hurting as it cost me a good share of the quadrella. I am not making the same mistake twice and he is my A selection. Contributer was afforded a number of excuses first up especially in relation to being inside horses at the tight Moonee Valley track. How true this is can be questionable but this horse is a genuine Group 1 horse and improvement is a certainty. The Cleaner is a bulldog as defeat is not in his psyche. He may not be the Group 1 horse I am sure my quinella horses definitely are but neither of that duo had better weaken when it counts as he will beat them. Both Volkstok’n’barrell and Mongolian Khan are on the cusp of winning this time in and today might be the day as the distance of the race is more in their favour than their runs this preparation.

PACE COMMENTS Is there anyone in the world who wouldn't believe The Cleaner will lead? Gee whizz, he even has barrier one to make the obvious more pronounced. Normally in a situation where a race map shows one leader and two on pacers it would seem certain that pace would be a major concern. This won't be the case with The Cleaner in the race as I believe the two horses with the task ahead might well be the on pacers leading the rest of the field. At some stage they will have to make their move otherwise The Cleaner steals the race. This will suit my mid fielders. What a ripper race!
