Flemington Race 8: Presto Matriarch Stakes 2000m

06/11/2015: This is the race for Lucia Valentina otherwise a stud career beckons. She loves a wet track, the distance is no issue and she is a standout on class figures. After her it's just an issue of minor plus and minus factors between Zarzali, Imperial Lass and Manageress who rate ahead of the unknown visitor from New Zealand Pondarosa Lass. I am worried about Ballet Suite as she is slow out usually but because of how the track might play after Thursday's deluge perhaps her get back style might not matter. I have Sure You Can in there because she loves Flemington and on her last wet track run perhaps her stats in the wet aren't a fair representation.

PACE COMMENTS I have Long Face Grace as the leader but I can see one or two of the on pacers , such as Zarzali and No Tricks close to the fence and Imperial Lass from out wide, surging forward and making this race a reasonably paced event. With all the rain on Thursday it's all dependent on how the track has deteriorated in which sections of the track.
