Moonee Valley Race 8: McEwen Stakes 1000m

04/09/2015: If Chautauqua handles the tight Moonee Valley track he will win as I am not all worried about the wide because he drops back anyway. The pace is going to be a scorcher so this will suit him and all that D Dunn has to do is take off at the 600m mark and run the splits we know Chautauqua is capable of running. Kuro is now with a new stable (Lee/Anthony Freedman) and this top class horse is more than capable of winning this race first up even allowing for his previous first up wins being in weaker company. Flamberge really comes into this race if the track is wet. If so I will be taking him in some strong exacta combinations however under drier conditions at a track where he is just average at the moment I am not so sure.

PACE COMMENTS Call out the fire trucks because this lot are going to scorch hard early with recognized frontrunners Sweet Emily (she will hold the rails), Sistonic, I'm All The Talk and Parcel all moving forward early. This gives great runs to the on pacers, especially Kuro and Flamberge, and Chautauqua, from his perfect barrier for a get back type will be steaming home. What a race!
