Flemington Race 2: Mumm Wakeful Stakes 2000m

30/10/2015: Sticking with last start winner My Poppette who was dominant when she led throughout at this level at Moonee Valley to easily eclipse rivals by 2.8 lengths. Should have no trouble taking up the running again off a good gate and looks the one they've all got to get past at the business end. Dawnie Perfect beat a couple of talented ones last time and has the advantage of having won over the 2000m. Did a big job jumping from maiden to Group 3 company when winning at Caulfield and has obvious ability, will be giving away a start but looks suited by the Flemington expanses and poses a real threat. Ambience started favourite in that race won by Dawnie Perfect and appeared to have every chance to win the race and there may be a doubt about the 2000m, however she draws well again and will have benefited from the experience and sure to be in the thick of things again. The Grey Flash appeals as a inclusion for the exotics, this filly was crowded for room in the straight last time and found the line quite well when given clear running and shouldn't be far off them as was Zarabeel who was also noted finishing hard late and is bred to relish this distance.

PACE COMMENTS My Poppette led for the first time in her career last time out for an emphatic 2.8 length win at Moonee Valley, and from a similar draw is expected to try to replicate that feat here. Bengal Cat, Bannantyne and Ritzy are the other runners that will provide the up front tempo. Race favourite Ambience has drawn well and is expected to drift back behind this lot and settle somewhere mid field on the rail and will be looking for an out in the straight. Last start winner Dawnie Perfect should drop out early and look to charge late. Expected tempo here is genuine.
