Doomben Race 8: Stradbroke Handicap 1350m

5/6/2015: Sacred Star has won six races fresh and he’s a chance to add to that record in this race. Generalife drops 4.5kg off his huge run in the Doomben 10000 while Charlie Boy drops 5kgs and both horses will have weights students on their side. Black Heart Bart gives away massive starts but, gee whiz, what a finish and although he has a huge job ahead for victory if the pace is hectic early watch out for him way out wide. If weight drops are going to help Generalife and Charlie Boy they will certainly assist El Roca whose second up run off 392 days was more than acceptable for a horse of his ability. Three year old fillies can win this race and Lumosty’s wins this preparation have been outstanding. With just 50.5kg she is surely the weight horse of the race. If she can slot in from barrier thirteen and unleash her scintillating sprint it’s all over red rover. Place chances to Temple Of Boom, Srikandi, Hot Snitzel, Smokin’ Joey, Knoydart and Delectation.

PACE COMMENTS Now that Lord Of The Sky is scratched there will be a war going on early as the on pacers drawn wide have to go forward and those drawn closer to the rail try to hold their positions. Don’t worry about pace for this race, there will be enough to assist those getting back early. This is usually the case in this particular race anyway as the serious moves begin much earlier than what seems in normal races.
