Caulfield Race 8: Memsie Stakes 1400m

28/08/2015: This is a terrific race but in reality it is a guess race simply because the major chances are first up and some have so called "bigger fish to fry" which means they are aiming for the WS Cox Plate and may not be fit enough to win this race. I think Volkstok’n’barrell has all the attributes to win first up and the way the race will be run will suit. He can swoop down the outside and add to his impressive record. Entirely Platinum showed he is up to this class first up last campaign when a solid fighting second to Dissident and finishing ahead of Mourinho in the CF Orr Stakes. He either leads or gets the perfect sit depending if Charmed Harmony runs. Boban won first up at Group 1 level in Queensland but beating Charlie Boy and Generalife might not transfer strongly to this race. I am not sure hence I have him in the C position. Rising Romance has the class to be a major Spring player in the Caulfield Cup, WS Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup and if so she must be some sort of chance in this race first up but I admit being unsure. Weary, with one run under his belt and being sent by C Waller from Sydney, might give him a fitness edge. Again a tough call in a tough race.

PACE COMMENTS Regardless of scratchings we are guaranteed a solid front runner. If Charmed Harmony runs he will lead with Entirely Platinum running second however if he misses this race Entirely Platinum will try and emulate his CF Orr Stakes front running effort. With Hi World and Temple Of Boom in close pursuit I am happy to suggest there will be a solid pace for the mid fielders and company to stake their claims to the race in the last fifty metres.
