Moonee Valley Q2 Race 10: Stakes 1600m

23/10/2015: This is a tricky affair mainly due to the apparent lack of pace and none of my top chances are real stars at the distance though still having performed reasonably well. Atlantis Dream just sneaks in as the A selection due to her terrific barrier draw, the jockey M Zahra is riding brilliantly and the mare is D Weir trained. Coronation Shallan is back to female company and is going to receive all the favours in the run on her favourite racetrack. Precious Gem loves this track and on her second to Amicus at Group 2 level she features strongly but as she gets back C Williams has a big job ahead. Manageress will also get back but she is another who features strongly form wise, especially around repeat winner La Passe. Azkadellia is the new girl on the block and although she has no distance form we cannot condemn her too toughly on that basis. However, we can on her get back style of racing and this is a class rise. Girl Guide's form figures this preparation look awful but she hasn't finished further back than 2.5 lengths in any of the runs and with an ounce of luck she might just nab a victory in a mighty tough race.

PACE COMMENTS This is quite an unusual race in that I have just one horse in the front runners to on pacers section. This means, unless a mid fielder is raced out of it's comfort zone, the pace could be muddling with Coronation Shallan stacking up the field. I guess we just have to take pot luck and not condemn any runner because of pace because we just do not know what will happen. Stakes 1600mOrderMargin
