Randwick Race 8: Coolmore Flight Stakes 1600m

2/10/2015: Honesta is the only runner engaged here that has won over this distance and with the exception of the 300 to 1 bolter Lauren's Magic the only runner to have actually raced beyond 1400m. We think that will give this filly a marked advantage and she appeals as a strong each way bet. Honesta recently put back to back wins this distance at Doomben and last start was beaten in soft ground over 1400m, the return to both firm ground and 16500m is a big plus. Speak Fondly is yet to win past 1200m but was runner up this level over 1400m at Rosehill last time behind the smart Exosphere. Should lead off a good draw and will be in this for a long way. Stablemate Flamboyant Lass was just beaten over 1400m last time at Listed level and has been placed at Group 3 level. Well drawn and rates for another good showing. Pearls has won 2 of her 3 starts and runner up in the other, winner at her only run her and has strong stable and rider connections, finished the race off well last time to win Group 2 event and rates strongly.

PACE COMMENTS Smallish field here should see them slot into their predicted in running positions fairly quickly. Race favourite Speak Fondly is expected to get a comfortable run and should have no excuses with the ability to control things in front. Perignon and Flamboyant Lass both should get good trails behind the favourite. Honesta will have admirers but won't be getting to many pace favours here with what might only be a moderate predicted tempo.
