Doomben Race 7: The Roses 2020m

22/05/2015: This is another tricky little race. The New Zealand form for Platinum Witness looks about right when balanced up against Ballet Suite. The former has a bit of class her way whilst the latter is working her way through the grades quite well. There won’t be much between them in the finish. Exquisite Jewel finished one length behind Werther in New Zealand and that horse finished about 1.5 lengths behind Platinum Witness so there isn’t a great deal between that combination. Bohemian Lily just finished behind Ballet Suite with Col ‘N’ Lil finishing just short of two lengths behind the pair so pop them into the riddle as well. Although Sebrina is up in class on paper that doubt can be a tad obliterated by her wet track ability and obvious improvement so in she goes, too. Add No Tricks for the place but that is it: no more chances for me. Yes, I have a few chances but it’s that type of race.

PACE COMMENTS Although I have just one horse leading looking at the wall of forward contenders behind Glitter Face it seems fairly safe to consider this race will be run at a solid pace. Don’t despair too much pace wise if you are on a back marker.
