Randwick Race 7: Eskimo Prince Stakes 1200m

05/02/2016: Dual Group 1 winner Pride Of Dubai looks to a decisive class edge over rivals here and if fully wound up for a first up tilt might have too much firepower for the opposition. This Peter Snowden trained gelding put back to back Group 1 wins together last Autumn winning the Blue Diamond at Caulfield and the Sires Produce at Randwick. Been off the scene for 305 days but has had the benefit of two recent barrier trials. The Chris Waller trained Counterattack stakes good claims on being placed at Group 1 level and having a very strong record here at Randwick. Also racing first up but has a win and a placing in only previous first up runs prior. Draws well and should be right in the thick of things at the business end. Spill The Beans has won 2 and placed 2 from 5 and although rising in grade here does look a tidy galloper in the making. Has won first up in the past and a recent trial win has him on target for a strong first up assault. The Snowden's also have 2nd favourite Wolf Cry who won his maiden in effortless fashion last time out at the Gold Coast after a Group 2 and two Listed placing's in his first 3 starts. Big watch here.

PACE COMMENTS This race is somewhat similar to the last as the two nominated front runners in Voilier and Spill The Beans are not dead set leaders but in the context of the racing patterns in this field are expected to vie for the early lead but no guarantees. Race favourite Pride Of Dubai is expected to drop rearward but there does look enough top end speed here to warrant a genuine pace, so should not be disadvantaged by the predicted tempo. Counterattack draws well and should settle just off the leading pace brigade. Wolf Cry is another fancied runner who is expected to race right up on the speed.
