Caulfield Race 9: The Champagne Pommery Masters Handicap 1800m

24/07/2015: The engagement of Michael Walker, who won easily on Good Value almost twelve months ago, was significant enough to slot him into my A position, especially considering the stable could have used an apprentice claim. Forgive this horse’s first three runs this campaign (first up off 280 days, wide, Sydney trip) and just judge him on his last run which was terrific. Falago has only had fourteen runs and is on the up and there’s no reason to suggest he cannot win again. Miss Rose De Lago has a significant weight drop off a forgettable run last start when she jumped awkwardly. There’s a distance doubt against the males but if she is ever going to overcome those two problems this is the race with just 53.5kg. Diametric has the ability to win this as he his effective second up and the D Oliver C Waller combination is one of the best. My only query is he was scratched recently from a winnable race and I am wondering why.

PACE COMMENTS Plenty of pace early with Commanding Time, Onpicalo and Lightenuff to all jump out of the barriers fairly swiftly and set their positions in the run. This provides the on pacers with the perfect run however it doesn’t preclude the get back types either. A genuine pace race without doubt.
