Flemington Race 6: Elms BM84 Handicap 2000m

On face value the run of Spanish Love was ordinary but post race it was conceded she may have been too close early and possibly on the inside rail where the going might have been inferior. Forgive her for the run and she looms large as a winning hope. However hot on her trail is Sure You Can as the win was quite strong third up over 2000m, normally a bit of an ask, so improvement fourth up is well and truly on the cards. Orion Love was disappointing last start but her fighting effort to beat Spanish Love had merit hence if we are forgiving we have to slot her into the equation. Forever Crazy is the interesting value runner as losing a plate during the run could have been enough of an issue to make her second up run seem flat. What’s of value is her third up win in Sydney last campaign and on the basis of improvement she is in with a chance, too. Naturally, Special Miss is considered but with several failed chances at the distance she is a marginal hope. Place chances go to Lucciola, Shadow Of The Mist, Royal Glance, Inishowen and Kept Woman. An interesting but difficult race.

PACE COMMENTS Shadow Of The Mist and Orion Love are most likely to head for the lead early with a wall of runners jostling for position off the pace. The way the race will be run should suit Spanish Love and Special Miss but I am not so sure of the back markers. I don’t see a super early pace unless one or two of my six on pacers decide to rattle the cages of those in front thus the more fancied back markers such as Sure You Can and Bec Said No Credit have the job ahead of them.
