Sunshine Coast Race 7: Glasshouse Handicap 1300m

15/05/2015: Boy, this is a tricky number. On the Group 2 Srikandi run last start Dances On Stars goes on top as the class drop is going to be helpful to start with but with a wide barrier and 58kg his job is fraught with difficulty. Mount Nebo ended up near the rail last start on a day where the going out wide was considered better so that run is forgivable. Where we have problems with this horse is his one win from eighteen good track runs and his five wins from thirteen runs on wet ground. Enquare is a mare versus males first up and she hasn’t won for several runs. Time For War fought on courageously from a wide barrier first up to Nostradamus and if connections want him forward early he will again need to work from a wide barrier. He is classy enough though as evidenced by his 2.2 length defeat to Almalad in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (Brazen Beau was second) and a two length second to last weeks winner Kuro. Allez Eagle is the unknown factor but any horse that has won seven from fourteen and has beaten by 2 lengths in an open Group 1 handicap has to be a chance in this race. Place chances to Phelan Ready, Kempelly, Typhoon Red, Choice Bro, Pillar Of Creation, Black Jet, Black Cash and You Did What. Sorry, it’s one of THOSE races where the field is a great option in the quadrella.

PACE COMMENTS This is a tricky race map wise as most of the front runners and on pacers don't always begin perfectly therefore my race map construction has an element of poetic licence about it. Just the same with a total of eight horses listed as going forward the pace should be solid enough: it’s just that I am not totally sure of which horses will jump as expected.
