Randwick Race 6: Hall Mark Stakes 1200m

15/04/2016: Speak Fondly has won 4 and placed 3 in 9 runs and has a very good record here at Randwick winning 3 times and placed once from 5 runs. This Gai Waterhouse trained filly is produced 2nd up here and is unbeaten in both previous runs when produced at the same stage. A recent trial winner she raced 4 times last prep for 3 wins including 1 at Group 1 level, so there's plenty to like about this one at Group 3 level here. Target In Sight has strong career strike rates and like Speak Fondly has good records at both the track and the distance. Beaten by a rising star last time out when runner up to Malaguerra this distance in slick time at Rosehill. Has the services of top hoop Hugh Bowman and looms as a major contender. Music Magnet races 1st up and has finished 2nd in both other 1st up appearances. Another with good career strike rates and should be primed for a strong 1st up assault on the back of two recent trial wins. That's A Good Idea also races 1st up and has generally gone well in the past at the same stage, this gelding also comes off the back of two trials being placed in both. A dual winner here at Randwick looks the value inclusion for the novelties. Fast 'n' Rocking is becoming impossible to follow but his A game is easily good enough to annex a race like this. Definitely has to be taken on trust but drops in grade and might have his head right for this one.

PACE COMMENTS Early lead here is likely to be contested by Speak Fondly and That's A Good Idea. Both these runners are not regular race leaders but look like mostly in this field given the known racing patterns. The 3 listed on pace runners are all at double figure odds but should ensure a genuine overall tempo here, so some of the more fancied backmarkers in Target In Sight and Fast 'n ' Rocking should not be disadvantaged. Speak Fondly whether in front or parked behind the leader should get a nice passage and have every chance.
