Flemington Race 9: Flemington Handicap BM84 1600m

19/02/2015: Winston Drive was off 28 days last start and after being a fraction wide his run finished close to the post and it’s fair to suggest improvement is on the cards. By the same token he has serious competition from Marli Magic, whose win at Moonee Valley was strong beating a good horse in Arena Rock, and Quicksilver Lass, who just lasted from the fast finishing Berrimilla. If you add the win by Inishowen to the mix, even though she is dropping back in distance, you find this is one tough race. Oh, I haven’t mentioned It’s One who beat Inishowen easily three runs ago and ran third to Quicksilver Lass and Berrimilla nor Sense And Reason who ran third to Choose and Winston Drive. Hell, what a race! Take them all in the quaddie.

PACE COMMENTS After three races with fairly easy race maps to construct here we go with a race with in running problems. Firstly, I have no proven, regular leader thus my on pacers are now the front runners, a situation some of them might not be used to. This can be a recipe for disaster but then again it might not make any difference. Perhaps Quicksilver Lass and Sense And Reason will try to lead as what have they to lose from their wide barriers. However, perhaps the stable will suggest they drop back early and see what happens. An impossible race pace wise.
