Randwick Race 8: Darley TJ Smith Stakes 1200m

01/04/2016: Exosphere is unbeaten in both previous 2nd up runs to date and looks an outstanding chance to protect that record here. Exosphere was caught in the wrong part of the track at Flemington last time out when a 1.7 length 4th in the Group 1 Lightning Stakes. A winner at his only start here at Randwick this colt draws for an ideal run from gate 4 and should take a power of beating. Chautauqua won this race last year and is almost unbeatable when on song. A little disappointing when easing favourite and beaten into 3rd place in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap last time out. Has withering finish on his day and looks better suited back to WFA conditions of this race. Can easily bounce back here. Flamberge is looking for a Group 1 hat trick here after wins at Caulfield and Moonee Valley. Continues to be underrated and chances will be greatly enhanced if track is affected. Terravista has won 4 from 5 this track and distance and although somewhat disappointing last time didn't have the best of luck at the business end. Track specialist with strong career strike rates and no surprise to see him right back in the thick of things back at Randwick. Fell Swoop recovered after a slow start for a 1.5 length 4th in the Group 1 Galaxy last time out behind Griante. Is unbeaten 3rd up and a winner this track. Has strong career stats and looks a major player with an even start.

PACE COMMENTS Our Boy Malachi should have little trouble finding the lead here and the other 3 listed on pace runners should all slot into nice trailing positions behind the leader. Exosphere draws well and although listed as a mid field settler shouldn't be too far off the leading pace brigade with more runners behind than in front. Chautauqua as per usual racing pattern is expected to tail out with the backmarkers early. Not an abundance of top end speed here on paper but still should produce a genuine overall tempo.
