Morphettville Race 8: Hughes Queen Of The South Stakes 1600m

06/05/2016: Into The Mist gets top billing here in yet another very open affair. Rises in class on last winning effort but has been placed at Group 3 level in the past and won emphatically in lower grade last time out. Goes OK this distance and draws a good gate. looks a strong each way commodity. French Emotion has won 4 and placed 7 from 11 career runs. Has been beaten in lesser grade last 2 runs and out to the mile here for the first time. Also draws very wide so she has an obstacle or two to overcome but has been a model of consistency and sure to be in the thick of things again. Metaphorical comes off a last start 3rd at Group 2 level at Moonee Valley and has won up to 2040m. Certainly has the class on her day to win this but has been beaten at her last 8 runs and that is the worry. Felicienne has won at Group 3 level in Melbourne and is proven at this distance. Has to overcome a very wide draw here and will need luck from out there. Still rates an each way chance if can get some breaks in the run. Atlantis Dream won this race last year and again looks a solid show to defend her title. Been placed at all 3 runs since a spell but another who will need luck after drawing very wide. Muy Bien faces a sharp class rise but did win well last time in weaker grade at Rosehill and hasn't been brought across for a change of scenery.

PACE COMMENTS This looks straight forward for the lead as I only have Marli Magic leading. This guarantees a sensible pace level early in the race because she is a good class of horse. I would not be surprised if French Emotion was sent forward as well to negate her bad barrier but then again most starts she ambles out of the stalls. It just depends how she jumps. All told I have to state I think the pace will suit most runners with a chance.
