PACE COMMENTS Looks a heap of pace on paper here and Zaratone looks to be quickest early of that brigade and is expected to lead these up. Most of the runners here in single market figures are all get back types but should be suited by the expected strong tempo. Of the on pace brigade That's A Good Idea is the shortest in the market but has fared poorly at the barriers drawing right off the track. The pace here is assessed as good to fast.
