Randwick Race 8: Hyland Colours Challenge 1000m

04/03/2016: High class sprinter Ball Of Muscle has amassed an enviable career record of never being out of a place in 17 runs inclusive of 8 wins. This recent trial winner has won twice and placed 3 times when produced 1st up in the past and won 2 from 3 this track and distance. This gelding has tremendous early speed and has drawn gate 1, so as you can see has plenty going for him. Golden Slipper runner up English comes off the back of 3 trials winning the last two. This filly has won 2 from 4 and is a winner here at Randwick. Has great potential and looks set for a big campaign. Shiraz is another who has put together a terrific resume winning 10 times and placed 3 from 17 runs. Has compelling 1st up form winning 4 times from 5 runs. A winner his only start this track and distance and should be right in the thick of things again at the business end. Felines faces a hefty class rise here from restricted grade to Group 2 level but is in career best form and will be looking to complete a winning hat trick. Blitzed rivals this track and distance last time and in fact has won 6 from 8 over the 1000m. Can easily measure up without any real surprise. Melbourne galloper Kinglike has won 2 from 4 and is a recent easy trial winner in Victoria. Hard to gauge ability against older gallopers here but hasn't made the trip North for a scenery change.

PACE COMMENTS Unlike the previous event there's an abundance of top end speed here through the likes of Lord Of The Sky, Speak Fondly and Ball Of Muscle which are all possessed of enormous early speed. The 3 designated leaders have all drawn well so it should be an interesting and very slick first sectional. Shiraz has drawn to get a great passage in transit just off these three. Early favourite English is expected to drop out early and race well back but should be admirably suited late by the predicted fast overall tempo here.
