Flemington Race 8: Auckland Racing Club Trophy 1200m

24/04/2015: Prince Harada as an entire showed promise but often didn’t have his mind on the job of winning races. His win last start off a massive 399 days was excellent and now he is no longer an entire it is expected he will continue his winning ways. Boomwaa again has a 3kg claim thus meets Prince Harada 1.5kg better at the weights. The problem with Boomwaa is his winning record of two from sixteen which isn’t that flash for a sprinter. However, he doesn’t seem to fire fresh (zero from seven) which adds to his first up run so the jury (that’s me) is out until after this race. Charmed Harmony at seven wins from eighteen starts is building up an impressive record and definitely must be considered in this event. Running Bull has five wins from thirteen with four from eight at the distance and looms as the classic lightly raced improver punters should always pay attention to. Place chances to Beauty’s Beast, Mr Utopia, Light It Up, Consorting, Floatmyboat, Flyingconi, General Jackson and Kingdom Of Dreams.
