Caulfield Race 9: Swettenham Stud Lord Stakes 1700m

25/12/2015: Another difficult race where most of the better career performed animals have in fact been out of form for some time. Staying with last start Flemington winner Tashbeeh who does rise in class for this but was placed at Group 3 level two runs back. Maps well from barrier 5 and has been very consistent this campaign. Precious Gem is also a last start winner at Flemington who has been racing strongly in Group races against her own sex in recent times. Tougher here against the males but has a win and a 2nd from only two runs this distance. Metaphorical has drawn well and should appreciate the increase in distance this race has to offer over her last run when 3rd to Danestroem over 1400m at Sandown. She's won up to 2040m and should be ready to produce best at 3rd run back from spell. Lidari is the class runner of the field and performed well at the highest level 2 campaigns back, never fired a shot in 3 runs last prep but look for a strong showing here at first run for the Weir stable. Star Rolling is a winner here and showed signs of a return to form with his last start Flemington 4th and will be much better suited this distance.

PACE COMMENTS Majestic Duke will probably roll forward and take up the running here from a host of on speed runners. A fairly quick first sectional is anticipated as many of these speed runners are drawn wide and will be pushed early to get across. Almost all of the top end market runners will settle in the second half of the field but should be suited by an expected genuine to fast tempo.
