Moonee Valley Race 7: Kane Construction 3yo Handicap 1200m

17/06/2016: The astute Hawkes stable must have a high opinion of Firsthand to jump many grades and go straight from Maiden to Open class at 2nd race start. This 3yo Star Witness colt did a fine job on debut after suffering early interference to win his Maiden comfortably at Wyong. Happy to go along with the mind set they may have a good one. Watch market moves closely with this runner. Prince Of Brooklyn is an easy Group 3 winner in Adelaide 4 runs back and has won first up in the past. Could be a huge threat here if ready. Euston Road was a winner this distance 2 runs back at Flemington in fairly good time. Beaten less than 1 lengths at his subsequent start and is from very good stable. Rises in class here but looks capable. Bassett is proven this level and is a multiple Group placed gelding who showed a return to somewhere near best with last start placing after 4 unplaced runs. Best form here puts him right in contention. Chavuma faces stiff rise in class here but is showing plenty of early potential in lower grades. Draws well and should be in the firing line for some time and may measure up to this tougher assignment. Tan Tat Charger goes well this distance and draws well and is another who may measure up if breaks go his way.

Get Back (10) Dash For Georgia, (12) Well Sighted.
PACE COMMENTS This is another race where the pace should be quite solid as I have two horses as confident front runners (First Hand, Chavuma) and I am assuming if Ascendance jumps well enough he will be charging forward from out wide. With four on pacers (Staghorn could kick up for the lead) to keep the leaders honest it means the race will be on from about the 600m mark thus providing the mid fielders with their chance.
