Flemington Race 8: Tab.Com.Au BM96 1200m

19/02/2015: This is another tough race but on recent form lines it’s a really tight call between Decircles, Magnus Reign and Floatmyboat. I have enormous respect for Decircles fighting ability and now he’s back to his best track and distance (three from six) I think he looks a top chance. Magnus Reign just defeated Tycoon Tara last start and she won at Group level last Saturday in emphatic style. On that effort he goes in second from Floatmyboat whom he just beat start in the race Tycoon Tara ran so well in. Hosting is quite capable of winning this first up as his first up run last preparation was quite strong remembering he suffered interference early in the straight. He followed up that win with another fighting effort to just win a three way thriller at Caulfield. His major worry is that this is his first run over the straight course, a task that has beaten many before him but with five wins from fourteen runs this horse is going places. Although Akavoroun is better suited over longer distances, and in the wet, he is a classy horse as evidenced by his enormous, virtually wide all the way, run behind Trust A Gust in the Group 1 Toorak Handicap. At the odds he is worth serious consideration. I wouldn’t totally dismiss Hard Stride, Mr Chard, Mandla, Mahican and Single Days as on their day and potential wise they have a chance.
