Randwick Race 9: McGrath Agents Metropolitan 2400m

2/10/2010: Orbec is lightly raced and was narrowly beaten in the Newcastle Cup 2 weeks back. This former French galloper has won up to 2500m and is drawn to get a gun ride from Zac Purton out of gate 4. The extra 100m of this suits perfectly and looks ready to peak here at 4th run back from spell. Could be an International Quinella with former Irish galloper Chance Top Dance tipped to make a marked improvement on first run here two weeks when unplaced but only 2 lengths adrift of winner. Has won this distance and gutsy win at Moonee Valley 2 runs back. Magic Hurricane is another who has drawn to get a sweet passage and can easily go one better than when narrowly beaten this track over 2000m last time. Has won this distance and looks an undeniable chance to figure prominently here. Beyond Thankful comes off winning the Newcastle Cup last time out and will be looking for 3 on the trot here. Has to overcome wide gate but racing with great heart at the moment. Amoonqith last run at Caulfield was really good from a very wide gate when beaten less than 2 lengths and has won up to 2800m and is yet another chance in an open affair.

PACE COMMENTS Waterhouse runner Bonfire is expected to push on from gate 12 and assume the front running role in this years renewal of the Metropolitan. Beyond Thankful will probably look to push forward from wide out along with Beaten Up and Kapour to settle right up on the speed. Favourite Magic Hurricane has drawn the inside gate and should drift back a little further and settle just in behind the pace runners. Quite a few back markers here who will all be hoping for a genuine tempo, which is certainly not assured from the current predicted map.
