Randwick Race 6: Optus Apollo Stakes 1400m

13/02/2015: A really tough affair further compounded by the clear lack of recognized pace. He's Your Man took his ratings to a new level last campaign winning the Group 1 Epsom and just being nutted in the Group 1 Mackinnon at Flemington. Yet to win 1st up but has been placed 3 times and placed in recent trial. A winner only run this track. Weary put in a strong 1st up run winning narrowly at Group 2 level at Rosehill last run and has won at 2nd up in the past. Has been consistent at the top level last couple of campaigns and should perform boldly again. Ninth Legion won impressively 1st up last time at listed level this track and has strong 2nd up from. Is a little underrated and if can get cover from wide gate a win here would not surprise. Contributer has compelling fresh from in the past and has won at Group 3 level at Caulfield, recent trial winner whose fresh form keeps him under notice in this. Lucia Valentina is top class and although she won't be suited by both the tempo and the going (if good) is just too good to entirely dismiss.

PACE COMMENTS A distinct lack of pace in this with no regular leader engaged and only two recognized on pace runners could see several runners race out of their usual pattern. Certainly those coming from well back will receive no assistance from the predicted moderate tempo at best.
