Flemington Race 9: Spring Is The Season Handicap 1700m

11/09/2015: If you can forgive Taiyoo for his abysmal run last start on a soft track he reads really well at terrific odds for this race. First up he ran a bottler in the P.B. Lawrence Stakes, when backed amazingly, and on that run alone should be half his current price. He carried 59kg to just go down over 3200m in the Adelaide Cup so the 61kg will not be a concern and boy does he love a dry track. I was most disappointed with Iggimacool’s second last start but on reflection she just didn’t sprint in the soft going. If she cannot win this with 0.5kg over the limit the rest of her preparation will be a struggle against males. Set Square just ran out of condition last start as did He Or She and both should improve for this race. Observational’s only Australian start yielded a meritorious win over the ordinary Evangelist as he was wide for most of the race. First up today with the added weight over this distance is a concern but at this stage I would rather have him in than out of my quadrellas.

PACE COMMENTS Looking at the spread of this race map I believe there will be enough pace to afford the back markers their chance. Don Doremo, Adorabeel and Count Of Limonade are all capable of leading if so desired and Escado has been known to sit outside the leader. Look at that logjam in the get back list! They will need luck but it will be more about looking for runs than a pace issue.
