Doomben Race 6: Shadow Handicap 1200m

29/05/2015: Enquare has Melbourne Group form around Shamal Wind and any return to that level sees her in the finish for this event. Her first up run was just a run but expect improvement, especially if the track remains good. Champagne Cath had to work last start first up from barrier eleven and was only collared in the last fifty metres thus it’s safe to assume she will be fitter for this race. Dublin Lass seemed to have every chance last start when beaten by I’ve Got The Looks but perhaps the slightly tougher competition on a slow track told the tale. Miniature fought out a race with Ball Of Muscle last campaign and there was also a second to Srikandi and on that form is certainly a chance here. Her first up run was a pass mark as she was held up for running but what has me interested is that J O’Shea has brought her here rather than stay in Sydney. Hidden Pearl bolted in at Toowoomba last start and, in fact, has bolted in all starts this campaign but those wins have been over 1000 metres. Nevertheless, keep her safe. When Joseph Pride travels take note and he has brought the improving Bonette up north for this race. I see she has been backed from $13 into $7 with one of the corporates so take heed. Place chances to Little Brown Horse, Espiritu, Tambo’s Jewel, Slots and Hidden Pearl.
