Flemington Race 8: James Boag's Symphony Stakes 1800m

2/11/2105: Tipping outsider Desert Jeuney could deliver a knockout blow if things happen to fall his way. This gelding raced well and was running placing's in Group 1 and 2 races at the end of last preparation. Has been largely out of sorts since a good 1st up run this prep but returned to winning form last start beating a handy field at Pakenham. A winner his only run this distance and has Oliver engaged. Malice drops in grade after a good 4th in the Crystal Mile at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day, has won up to 2000m and may be looking for this trip now, well drawn and has strong stable and jockey representation. Tall Ship is sure to appreciate the extra distance of this event and has improved with each run this spell, finished off nicely in the Seymour Cup last time and should be hitting the line strongly in this. He Or She finally broke through for his maiden Melbourne win last time and may go on with it in this, however he has to contend with both a horror draw, class rise and a distance query. The Bowler has good form this track and finished off well to be beaten less than 1 length last time after blowing the start. Certainly rates in a very open race.

PACE COMMENTS A big field here but somewhat short on top end pace. Sadler's Lake per courtesy of good gate is expected to lead this lot with the only other early notable tactical speed coming from Jaquinot Bay and Tanby. Early favourite He Or She has a horror draw and apart from a brilliant piece of riding will probably look a 3 wide position with cover. Tall Ship is expected to settle rearward and will need a genuine pace on to give best chance. Punters will need to look at earlier racing patterns for detection of any bias. Pace assessment in this one is moderate to genuine.
