Flemington Race 4: Hilton Hotels & Resorts Stakes 1400m

6/11/2015: Demonstrate is only 1 of 2 runners dropping in class for this event and in terms of field careers so far has a decisive advantage over rivals here who are mainly maidens and restricted class gallopers. Drops back here from 3 successive Group 3 runs and should strip much fitter after coming off 56 day break prior to last effort. Has the form lines to hold these out. Les Darci motored home late to grab victory in a BM 64 last time at Moonee Valley and looks to have obvious ability, much tougher task this time but plenty to like about the way he attacked the line at last outing. Ngarimu is a nicely bred colt out of former top sprinting mare Glamour Puss and looked good winning his maiden comfortably at Seymour last time. Big jump in class to Listed level here but is obviously well regarded by the stable. Big watch on this one. Palentino is another jumping from maiden class and his maiden win looks weaker on paper than Ngarimu, but no telling where the ceiling is yet so no surprise to see a win here. Ragazzo Del Corsa is impossible to follow but does get huge class relief and has won this track.

Mid Fielders (5) Les Darci, (8) Palentino, (1) Sogno D'oro, (4) Ngarimu.
Get Back (9) Demonstrate, (3) Kracken, (2) Guilty As Sin.
PACE COMMENTS Another race where there is limited top end speed. Secret Prophet has raced in second position in the run in all 3 race starts to date and with Apoloboom being the only other runner with noted early speed in this event is expected to cross over from gate 10 and take it up. Apoloboom should settle in behind and get a good trail on the leaders back. A host of expected mid field settlers with both Demonstrate and Kracken dropping rearward early. No pace favours for either of those two who will be hoping that Secret Prophet rolls along at a fair clip but the expectancy here is only a moderate tempo.
