HOLYFIELD (11) was just piped at the post in the Magic Millions Cup over 1400m in a very fast run race behind ELEVEN ELEVEN. He’s on the quick back up here which he hasn’t tried before suggesting he came through that race well. The wide barrier should see him take a sit behind the speed here in what looks a race with a lot of leaders. The camp are inform and the $7.50 is appealing.


THROUGH THE CRACKS (13) ran a very credible 3rd first run back from over a year off the scene behind PRIME CANDIDATE in the Listed Christmas Classic 1200m. Fitter for that run and out to a more suitable distance now where he is 2 from 2. The only slight negatives are he might be flat 2nd up after a long break and with the rail out 8 meters it might be hard to make ground from the back as per his usual racing pattern. LOOKS LIKE ELVIS (6) got home well for a 1.25L 2nd behind LIGHTHOUSE in the Listed Chester Manifold 1400m at Flemington last start and won the Vobis Gold Bullion over 1400m the start prior. His track stats aren’t that flattering and his pattern of racing back will make it a task for him but the likely hot tempo should give him his chance.

Betting Approach:

(11) HOLYFIELD: 0.5 units @ $7.50

Race 9: BM88 HANDICAP 1600m

YIYI (5) finished 2nd behind KINGSHEIR over 1400m first up and was strong to the line. Out to a more suitable distance now in a race that looks slowly run, from his wide barrier he should be able to slot in midfield and be fighting out the finish. He might just need this run but he does look the progressive horse of the field.


LACKEEN (7) was a plain 1.9L 5th last start behind KINGSHEIR in what looked an ordinary performance. He was strong through the line suggesting the 1600m of this race will suit. He meets all of his rivals from that race better at the weights and the drier the track the better according to his stats. WAIRERE FALLS (9) ran 4th behind KINGSHEIR first up and won this track, distance and class prior to spelling in fast time. He may need the run but can’t be discounted.

Betting Approach:

(5) YIYI: 0.5 units win @ $3.70
