Doomben Race 9: Fred Best Classic 1350m

22/05/2015: Traveston Girl is now ready after two pipe openers to recapture the Group form displayed in the spring around Amicus, Sabatini and Afleet Esprit. She can lead or box seat and that’s a huge plus for her third up run against the males. Sarajevo has to be a top chance on the Kuro run because Kuro is a group horse in the making. Deiheros has the better barrier than Sarajevo and that should just turn the tables on their run behind Kuro. Najoom hasn’t finished further back than second in six race starts and she will cross over near the lead and be might hard to beat, too. Gosh, this is a terrific race between my top four. If Silent Whisper even jumps only reasonably instead of his absolute dawdling out of the barriers at his last two runs be prepared for an effort as he has a dynamite finish. Rekindled Power is much the same out of the barriers as Silent Whisper and he is another who figures if completely on song. Staviva has form around Stratum Star and Manhattan Avenue from three runs ago when wide and slowly away. He’s a second up improver at odds as to a lesser extent Miss Cover Girl who was only off 33 days last run. Lucky Tom is in there for a wild place chance at huge odds.
