Flemington Race 6: Banjo Patterson Series Heat Five 2500m

26/06/2015: There’s not terribly much between Cadillac Mountain and De Little Engine as both have terrific records at their third runs and deeper into a preparation and their last start efforts are suggesting they are ready to win. Practiced is a lightly raced six year old, rising seven soon, but his run when just beaten by Zanteco last preparation and his win last start (both at this track and distance) suggests that with maturity and distance he will feature in this race, especially with just 52 kg. Black Jag looked good on face value in what seemed a fighting win but a read of the stewards report suggests D Dunn, rider of the runner up Lady Cumquat, didn’t think she finished the race off. With an extra 2.5kg that doesn’t instill confidence in yours truly but winners keep winning and perhaps it will happen again. Crafty Cruiser’s legs must feel the pinch at times as he has had many, many runs but here at Flemington it’s hard not to agree he does his best work.

PACE COMMENTS Don't worry about pace for this event as with Black Jag likely to lead and with consistent leaders or on pacers such as Cooldini, Stable Star, Lucciola and You Think So on his back I believe the back markers can work their way into contention.
