Doomben Race 5: Darley Brc Sprint 1350m

20/05/2016: Last start Caulfield winner Charmed Harmony is proven at this level and is top rated here. This gelding should press forward from gate 11 and either take it up in front or drop in behind Religify. He's a tough competitor with a great winning strike rate and should give backers a terrific run for their money in this. Artlee was not too far away in Malaguerra's Group 1 here last time and drops in grade for this. Has won up to 1400m and draws well, another with good strike rates who looks a serious threat. Coolring comes off a last start Listed win at the Gold Coast and has won up to 1500m. Has been placed this level at Rosehill and now that he's hit form comes into strong contention. Religify does rise in class here and would have to produce a career best ratings performance to take this out. Is a last start winner however in lesser grade and maps perfectly from gate 4 for top hoop James McDonald. Likely to be in this for a long way. Bachman went poorly last time but is from a very astute stable and has multiple Group placings to his credit. Should find this field a little easier than last time and no surprise to see him bounce back in this.

PACE COMMENTS Both Religify and Charmed Harmony can lead this field on their ear but I am backing Charmed Harmony to push the issue. Let's face it: he's a bulldog when fit and leads. This give Religify every chance off the pace. Cool Ring can go forward as well and I am suggesting he might sit outside Religify. I don't really see this race as a hot pace event, especially if Religify's connections are happy to sit second, hence I would be wary about the mid fielders and backmarkers. They will need to be running very strong sectionals to win.
