Randwick Race 6: Tatts Club Chelmsford Stakes 1600m

4/09/2015: This race looks a bit of a worry for those runners who are going to get back in the field with a clear lack of top end speed on paper. Pornichet has the tactical speed to race up on the pace and this looks a really nice race for him. Raced up on the pace when 1st up second to Royal Descent last time and generally goes better 2nd up where he has won 2 from 4. Pornichet has also a strong record over this distance and has won at Group 1 level so is well credentialed to win the Group 2 event. Royal Descent raced prominently last time for a great 1st up win and that ability will stand her in good stead for this. Has never been unplaced in 7 runs including runner up 6 times here at the Randwick mile, goes OK 2nd up and may finally break through. Kermadec has to overcome a wide draw and perceived pace issues but looks right in this with an ounce of luck. Placed both 2nd up runs and goes well track and distance. Hartnell is a Group 1 winner and has strong record this distance. Has had the benefit of 2 recent trials so should be primed for strong first up assault, although does look a bit of unders at the current price. Throw in I'm Imposing at big odds for the exotics. This 10 yo goes well fresh and has a distinct liking for the track and distance.

PACE COMMENTS No designated front runner in this lot and even the listed on pace brigade are borderline mid field runners. So the large contingent of backmarkers here will receive no favours from an expected overall moderate tempo at best. Beaten Up did lead in this race last year when runner up, and from a good draw perhaps will do similar again given the lack of top end speed here. Both Royal Descent and It's Somewhat should get good trailing runs. Kermadec looks mid field at best given his draw and will have to overcome a slowish tempo to prevail.
