Interesting race here. I’m so torn. I have a rule never back herd horses and JIANZHANG is a herd horse. But to counter that today, he looks so well placed and in fact looks a few lengths better than all his rivals. From this centre gate draw I suspect he goes forward and tries to lead all the way today. Last start he adopted those same tactics and led until final 100m in what may be a stronger maiden. He ran third that day beaten a length. There should be no excuses today but 16 starts into a career and still no victory on the board is a concern. ORREZA is the likely and obvious danger. She has speed also but the last 200m will test her.
Tip: JIANZHONG @ $15
Here’s a fascinating race. The last time the consistent CHOOSDAY NIGHTS raced against NITTY GRITTY in one of the BM 58 races, it was a close finish with Nitty getting the prize. He meets her .5kg worse off so on that count there is a split match between the two. Now, Nitty raced since when stepped up in trip and failed to run on. Back to a journey he likes here. But I do think Choosday Nights will strip fitter and is more suited to this race given she will be up on pace at a track where you need to be near the pace. Quinella them.
The run of BLITZAR last start in the Country Champs qualifier when flashing late for 4th, suggests he can win this and win it well. Looks back to his best and being 4th up he looks very suited to this. ZOUOLOGIST is racing well and fit too. Quinella.
Tip: BLITZAR @ $3.20
