Flemington Race 8: Nathan O'Mara & Terry Jolley Handicap 1000m

07/08/2015: Considering Tansy got his tongue over the bit last start his effort to the smart Il Cavallo was a tip top run and he finished ahead of last week’s winner Our Nkwazi as well. That’s good enough form for me. I Am The General meets Tansy 2.5kg better at the weights for their Ballarat run and considering he beat the reasonably smart Rough Justice home last start he is a respectable B selection. Just For Starters can only improve on his first up run off 343 days and Corsica Lad who finished just behind him also has strong credentials. Sentfromthestars has the perfect two from two first up statistics and going on his second to Sino Eagle last preparation he is up to this class. Orient Line has city form around smart horse Lord Aspen last campaign and if he is fit enough comes into this race as a good chance, too. Klishina has form around Hard Romp who would be quite competitive here. Had longshot backing at wfa last run.

PACE COMMENTS This is the sort of race map I like: quick and easy. I have little doubt Sunday Escape and Secretan will sprint to an early lead with a wall of horses behind that pair led by Klishina, Earthly Tiger, Corsica Lad, Antarctic Missile and Grand Gallop. This will be a race of real speed, and so it should be at this distance, ensuring the backmarkers will take off at the six hundred metre mark and have their chance.
