Gold Coast Race 7: Smeg Victory Stakes 1200m

24/04/2015: This should be a terrific sprint and the two runners with the least mount of career runs may very well fight out the finish. Srikandi races 1st up here but has a win and a 2nd when doing similar in the past. Srikandi has great career figures so far winning 6 and placed twice in 8 runs. A recent trial winner Srikandi has won at Group 3 level and placed at Group 1 level. Should figure strongly. Ball Of Muscle has similarly great career figures of 7 wins and 4 placings from 11 runs. Just beaten at Flemington 1st up and is unbeaten in three 2nd up runs. Will be there for sure. Knoydart is a class act and should be ready to show best at 3rd run back. Handles all types of going and drops in grade for this. Temple Of Boom has always performed well at the elite level and has good record at this track. Expected to be right in the thick of things again. River Lad also rates and generally races well fresh, handle soft ground and goes well here.

Front Runners (4) Rocket To Glory, (3) Ball Of Muscle.
On Pacers (8) River Lad, (9) Alma's Fury, (1) Srikandi.

Get Back (11) Whittington, (2) Knoydart, (12) Cape Kidnappers.
PACE COMMENTS Another race with plenty of top end speed on paper. The fancied Ball Of Muscle is expected to look for the early lead but will have to overcome Rocket To Glory whose normal map pattern is also to lead. Srikandi should slot in just behind this pair and get the run of the race from gate 1. Knoydart is drawn well in gate 2 but should drift back rearward as per that gallopers usual racing pattern. Pace assessment is good to fast.
