Mornington Race 9: Mornington Cup 2400m

26/03/2015: Index Linked is ticking the most boxes especially his third up and deeper record and he will receive a pretty good run off the pace. Big Memory was only second up when beaten 1.2 lengths by Index Linked two runs ago after being caught wide as well. There’s a handy 4kg weight swing for the weights punters in Big Memory’s favour, too. Akzar’s run in the Australian Cup was certainly good enough for this race and in the Peter Young he beat home Happy Trails! Entirely Platinum is going to be in this race for a long time as he should lead on his ear, if the stable decrees so. The last part of the race is a concern but he is having his first go at the distance and is a 1900m winner, albeit in weaker company, and don't forget he has raced in elite company in recent times. Renew's effort in the Adelaide Cup was excellent and he just tired third up. The Sandown Cup winner will be fitter for this. What can you say about the much maligned Extra Zero? He has won $1.4 million dollars, is racing career best form and what a run in the Australian Cup. Place chances to Banca Mo, Wish Come True, Genuine Lad, Gamblin' Guru and Don Doremo.

Front Runners (10) Entirely Platinum.
On Pacers (1) Index Linked, (5) Genuine Lad, (7) Don Doremo, (8) Gamblin' Guru, (14) Wish Come True.

PACE COMMENTS Although not normally an out and out leader I envisage Entirely Platinum taking up the running with the likes of Gamblin' Guru, Don Doremo and Genuine Lad taking up prominent positions early. This gives Index Linked a lovely trail just off the pace in a race where I don’t really see a hectic early pace. I will be risking the mid fielders and backmarkers.
