Randwick Race 7: Optus Business Apollo Stakes 1400m

12/02/2016: This race sees the return of super mare Winx who rounded out last preparation with Group 1 back to back wins in the Epsom Handicap at Randwick and one of the easiest Cox Plate wins in the history of the great race. Winx has won twice from 3 runs when resuming in the past and has the benefit of two recent soft trials to kick off her autumn campaign. One of the best going around and if she’s right nothing in this field will be able to withstand her withering finish. Magic Hurricane has strong figures at this track and took his career to a new level last campaign culminating in a Group 1 victory in the 2400 Metropolitan Handicap. This gelding won 1st up last preparation and is expected to be in the thick of things again in this. Centre Pivot goes well this track and also this distance and has fine career strike rates as well. Would have to reach a new career peak to win this but stats suggest a strong place chance. Drawn well and should have every chance of running into the placings Solicit is a high class mare and races well when produced 2nd up after a spell, also has good record this distance and another drawn to advantage. Will get good passage and should be close up around the placings.

PACE COMMENTS Leebaz, if the rider so desires should get an easy lead here with Solicit, Centre Pivot and Bohemian Lily settling into good trailing positions behind the leader. Raging favourite Winx will most probably end up in a mid field position with Hugh Bowman looking not to get caught pocketed from gate 1. Quite a lot of backmarkers here who will be looking for a genuine run race and the pace prediction is that but only just.
