Caulfield Race 8: Sir John Monash Stakes 1100m

03/07/2015: Although I am no great fan of Lord Of The Sky I do have to admit this is his race to lose going on his weight advantage and recent serious Group 1 form. Anatina pulled up lame first up after drifting alarmingly in the betting thus she has to be taken on trust but the ability to recover is there. Angel’s Beach is becoming a tad difficult to follow but she has similar ability, if not better overall, than Anatina so, again, we have to trust that ability to come to the fore. Heart Of A Lion is well named and if there is to be a new kid on the block it’s him. Having backed him twice recently I know he can dig in and at double figure odds he is my speckie of the race. Chances on their day go to Riziz, Sea Lord, Pago Rock and Wild Rain.

Caulfield Race 8. RaceTime: AEST 16:09, 04/07/2015

Front Runners (3) Minaj, (11) Lord Of The Sky.
On Pacers (4) Wild Rain, (5) Anatina, (6) Sea Lord, (8) Heart Of A Lion, (13) Miss Promiscuity.
Mid Fielders (1) Pago Rock, (7) Klishina, (9) Angel's Beach, (10) Riziz.
Get Back (2) Our Nkwazi.
PACE COMMENTS The pace will be solid enough with Minaj likely to try and lead Lord Of The Sky as both are horses who basically zoom along early. This gives the mid fielders their chance.
