Caulfield Race 7: William Hill Sprint Series Heat 2 Stakes 1200m

18/09/2015: This is a really interesting race as there are several ways of assessing the race. Eventually I chose Hazard simply because she is the best mare in the race and I have to use that factor as my guide. The win by the mighty mare Catkins last Saturday franks the form from Queensland when Hazard won the Group 2 Dane Ripper. I had to take a chance against Vezalay for two reasons: the seven day back up after a hard run and the actual drop back in distance which could also be a positive. However, both reasons, could mean "zippo" so I kept her for the B selection. Tycoon Tara ran a terrific first up race against the mighty Chautauqua and the drop back to a more sedate own sex race gives her a strong chance in this event. Wawail is unbeaten first up from three attempts however those wins were against weaker company and at 1100m or shorter and the last 100m is a concern. Where the pendulum can swing is that Wawail is a very classy mare and that type overcomes obstacles. Politeness figures as a stronger chance if the rain arrives and Girl Guide, even though a non winner for several runs, is a dead set trier and at the odds has to go in.
