Moonee Valley Race 6: The Cup Club Stakes 1200m

04/09/2015: Fell Swoop is the mystery element as he is clearly a winner keeps winning type but perhaps having his first run at the tight Moonee Valley track might cause problems. Griante was caught wide at Caulfield but there is only one turn into the straight so I am not totally convinced the run had the excuses offered for the defeat. Just the same she is above average and will receive a cosy enough run and there shouldn't be too many excuses. Fast 'N' Rocking was beaten 0.85 lengths second up last preparation behind Shamal Wind and Under The Louvre in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate coming from fifteenth at the 800m mark. That was some effort but I am worried the early pace might not suit him in this race as he will need to get back early from his wide barrier.

PACE COMMENTS Although theres usually good pace in most sprint races I don't believe this race is going to be one of them. I only have Galaxy Pegasus leading with the smart pair Griante and Solsay camped just off the pace. The mid fielders and get back runners will need to be very good to make up ground on the on pace duo, especially if they slot into their early positions without major fuss.
