Flemington Race 7: Bruce Gadsden Handicap 1400m

17/07/2015: Although Charmed Harmony has won on a soft track his best form around this level is on good tracks thus I am prepared to risk him fractionally and selecting Club Command. With the 3kg claim he carries a mere 51kg which is terrific for a horse who loves the track and distance and has won four races in the wet. He is the each way special of the day. Royal Island ventured to Rosehill last start but on a heavy 8 track and off 28 days between runs he found it all too much and just plodded. Forgive the run and he reads well here. Khutulun’s last run was strong as she travelled wide all the way and that won’t happen today off barrier three with Damien Oliver aboard. The soft track is more the concern with her. The wetter it gets the better the chance Luckyi’mbarefoot has of winning as he seems to have been revitalized since his huge break.

PACE COMMENTS If Free Of Doubt doesn’t lead then Charmed Harmony will but I wouldn’t be surprised to see Vizhaka come over fairly quickly. From there the pattern is set as my on pacers will slot in accordingly and the race will be run to suit those near the lead. I wouldn’t be having any mid fielders or get back types in my AB positions.
