Doomben Race 6: Magic Millions The Roses 2000m

20/05/2016: Ambience is the best performed runner here and after being somewhat out of sorts at first 3 runs back this prep showed a return to best could be on the cards with a last start 2nd in the Australian Oaks at Randwick behind Sofia Rose at Group 1 level over 2500m. Comes off a 41 day freshen up here for this 2000m task and has good form this distance. Wins if she reproduces best career ratings here. Imposing Lass is putting together an imposing record winning 4 of her first 5 race starts. Went from restricted grade to winning Listed event last time and must step up again to Group 2 level here. Has horror draw to contend with but could be a star on the rise. Self Esteem is yet to win out of restricted grade but has a Listed placing and a Group One 4th to her credit. From astute stable and does fair a little bit better with the barriers than last time. Definite each way chance. Falkenberg has won 2 and placed 3 from 7 runs and looks to have a bit of talent. Has to produce a fair career spike in ratings to win this, but last run was an improvement in stronger company and if the breaks go her way should be around the placings. Both Lyricist and Romantic Maid face massive class hikes but are worth consideration on recent lower class form as exotics boosters.

PACE COMMENTS A stack of the early action will come from out wide as Self Esteem, Imposing Lass and Passion Flight must go forward and try to head off Zasorceress, who is drawn to keep them busy. There are several on pacers (Kepede, Backstreet Lover, Falkenberg, Sebring Sally) who have jumped well early at times and clean jump out means it would be silly if they did not go forward as well. In other words, pace should not be an issue. The race will be more about ability at the distance.
