Caulfield Race 8: Clamms Seafood Oakleigh Plate 1100m

26/02/2016: In life we all need barometers to live by and in horse racing I believe the "winners keep winning" principle is the one to live by. Heatherly, Keen Array and Fell Swoop fit the bill and I am going to select them in that order. Heatherly was in another zone last start and a repeat of that run has her leading with fifty metres to go. Hold your breath after that. Keen Array could not match motors with Japonisme in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes in the spring and you saw how good that horse was last Saturday when finishing inches behind Chautauqua and Terravista. Fell Swoop just keeps winning and is unbeaten on six good track runs. It is a lay down misere this horse will win a Group sprint race as he has so much upside. Eclair Choice really bombed the start first up but he is trained by the masterful Phillip Stokes and has won two Group 2 races, with one at this track. Improvement will occur. Vezalay is unbeaten at this track and distance from two starts and is unbeaten from three distance runs. It would be no surprise to see her win first up. The roughie of the race, and I mean rough, is Swinging Arms who beat Dylanson (who beat Riziz, a reasonably smart horse) and Calianco three weeks ago in Adelaide and both horses have won since in fighting wins. He is $101 for the win and $26 for the place. Surely a dollar or two won't go astray.

PACE COMMENTS Is there ever an Oakleigh Plate where they do not run like scalded cats? There might have been but I don't remember one. Don't worry one iota about pace as an issue. I have nine horses as leaders and on pacers and even if my two leaders, Heatherly and Lord Of The Sky, wobble out of the barriers there are plenty of runners behind them to carry the banner of front runner.
