Flemington Race 2: Starlight Children Foundation 2000m

6/11/2015: The Lloyd Williams owned lightly raced Divan put up a great performance against much more seasoned runners when runner up in the recent Bendigo Cup at Group 3 level and should find this level of opposition much more appealing. This 4yo Zabeel gelding has raced only 6 times for 2 wins and 3 placing’s. A winner his only run this distance he should have plenty of upside still and be ready to peak at 4th run in. Velox also gets good class relief in this Benchmark 90 after two good recent runs at Group 3 level. Held up last time in straight and should have finished closer. A little query over the distance but expected to perform strongly at this level. Sysmo also has a bit of a distance query and has to overcome a wide gate. Showed another win is getting closer with good performances at last two in Open and Listed Company. Crime Fighter is another who should be ready to peak at 4th run back. Proven this distance and drops in grade from last 3 runs.

PACE COMMENTS Not a great deal of top end speed here at all and Okahu Bay being the only runner who has led with any regularity looks a certainty to push on from gate 12 and take up the running. The 3 listed on pace runners are borderline midfield but in a race with plenty of backmarkers it's looking fairly comfortable they'll race in forward positions. No favours here for those who get back with only a moderate overall tempo predicted.
