Hawkesbury Race 6: Panthers Hawkesbury Gold Cup 1600m

01/05/2015: Another really tough affair with a host of chances. Strawberry Boy is unbeaten in both runs this track and has won 2 from 3 at the distance. If he find the lead without too much effort from wide gate he should give them something to run down. Strawberry Boy was just swamped late last time over 1400m and should appreciate the step up to 1600m in this, has won 3 times on soft ground. Ecuador put in a mighty performance after an extended break and if he has shaken off any affects of that run looms as a huge danger. Has won up to 1800m and won 2 from 3 on soft ground. Bagman is another who need to overcome an awkward draw, but is proven at this level and is a 3 time winner this distance. Dropping back sharply in distance but coming off a 41 day freshener and can figure with luck in the run. Rugged Cross won as an outsider last time and can prove that was no fluke with a strong performance in this, some concerns with the 1600m but beat some handy one's last time. San Diego was close up in that race and has won at the 1600m, unlike many has a good draw and can figure on best form. Monton, Malice and Lucky Lago are all place chances.

PACE COMMENTS Strawberry Boy and Ecuador should provide a quick early sectional as they push forward from wide gates to adopt their usual race patterns. With a number of on pacers this should be run at a genuine to fast pace. Medcaut is fancied and has drawn ideally in gate 4 to get a charmed run in transit. The top early fancies here will all be up right on the pace.
