Rosehill Race 7: Longines Golden Slipper 1200m

18/03/2016: Victorian trainer Mick Price has the top two market order runners and will be looking to replicate those runners quinella success in Melbourne's premier 2yo event the Blue Diamond Stakes. Extreme Choice showed a tremendous turn of foot in the straight to power away in that race before Flying Artie pulled some late ground off the winner. The runner up did a fine job coming from well back after being hampered early in that race, but again will be possibly standing the unbeaten Extreme Choice a tidy start and will be hard pressed to turn the tables. Defcon could be value runner here and was very impressive coming from last on the turn to win the Black Opal in Canberra last time out. Prior to that was 0.5 length 2nd to Astern this track. Watch for this one charging late at a price. Capitalist draws perfectly here and will be looking to atone for last start defeat at Randwick at very prohibitive odds. Was favourite for this event prior to that shock defeat and gets every chance off a great speed map here to bounce back. Astern has to overcome a very wide draw but is undefeated in both race starts to date and was easy recent trial winner. From very astute stable and if James McDonald can give him the right run will certainly be in the thick of things again at the business end.

PACE COMMENTS The early battle for the lead here should be fought out between Kiss And Make Up and Scarlett Rain, with the latter expected to push hard early to get across from gate 16. Race favourite Extreme Choice and Capitalist are drawn to get ideal runs just off the pace. Astern draws poorly in 17 but should push forward and look to settle in the first 4 or 5 runners. Second favourite Flying Artie although drawn well is expected to drift back into the second half of the field. As is the case with most large fields the speed here is certain to genuine.
