Caulfield Race 9: Tile Importer City Timber Handicap 1600m

13/05/2016: Former "wallet burner" Refulgent rounded out last preparation with back to back wins and finally may have turned the corner. Races 3rd up here and has finished 2nd at both other 3rd up runs and his last start second up 3rd only 0.3 lengths off Charmed Harmony suggests he is very close to another win. Races well here and the step up to 1600m looks ideal. Lord Durante is a hardy customer who will be out to break a 12 run losing sequence. Was runner up in close 3 way go in the same race behind Charmed Harmony and wouldn't have to improve much on that effort to take this out. Definite each way contender. Hard Call was a winner this track and distance last time out in slightly lesser grade. Has won 3 and placed 4 from 9 runs and continues to improve. Has to overcome a wide draw in gate 15 but if breaks go his way in the run will be right in the thick of things. Nevis won at Listed level 3 runs back and this grade 2 runs back over 1600m and 1700m respectively. Worked from wide gate to lead before being run down and should be in this for a long way off a much better draw this week. Guest Of Honour last 2 runs have been good this level but will need to find a couple of lengths at least to win this, whilst Every Faith comes off a last start win at Flemington in lesser grade and certainly rates a place chance at least.

PACE COMMENTS Not much doubt Nevis will lead but Excites Zelady is no slouch for the lead either hence the pace should be quite solid. Just to add a bit of spice to the pace there are a wall of on pacers waiting to have a crack at the leaders if they wilt just before the home turn. This scenario is great for the back markers who will figure in the finish if good enough.
