NATURE STRIP (1) was unlucky first up in the G1 Lightning 1000m at Flemington after being hampered at the start. They ran slowly for the first part of the race and he did enormous job to get within a whisker of winning. He is 2 from 2 on heavy tracks, 5 from 12 at the track and 9 from 16 at the distance suggesting this bloke is just a winner. He is drawn to sit outside Eduardo here in what looks a 2 horse race.


EDUARDO (2) put in a perplexing run first up when 3rd in the G1 Lightning behind HOME AFFAIRS and NATURE STRIP. He jumped well like usual but Nash decided to take a big hold and sit off HOME AFFAIRS which may have been to his detriment. He may have gotten a little lost up the straight having not run there for some time and the long float trip down the day before may have taken its toll. Excuses maybe…but I think back around a bend he can test NATURE STRIP here. He’s 2 from 3 on heavy tracks and is slightly better drawn than NATURE STRIP.

Betting Approach:
At their short prices, a Quinella bet looks the play so that we can just sit back and enjoy the race.

(1) NATURE STRIP & (2) EDUARDO 1 unit Quinella


FORBIDDEN LOVE (9) bolted in last start over 1400m in the G2 Guy Walter at this track and on a heavy 10. She had a soft run on speed and did it easily. Backs up quickly here and will likely lead or sit outside the leader. Drops 1kg in weight and ticks a lot of boxes here and looks hard to beat again.


PRIVATE EYE (3) won the G1 Epsom 1600 last prep as well as the G3 Show County 1200 when first up. Up in the weights now and needs to step up to WFA racing but this fellow is 2 from 2 on a heavy track, 2 from 4 first up and 3 from 4 at the distance. He may be in need of this run but with those stats he should be very competitive here.  LIGHTHOUSE (10) finished 1.5L 2nd to TOFANE last start in the G1 CF Orr stakes 1400m. This mare has finished top all 6 runs this prep. First go Sydney ay which isn’t ideal but at least she has a win on a heavy 8.

Betting Approach:

(9) FORBIDDEN LOVE: 1 unit win @ $3.80


ANAMOE (1) won the G2 Hobartville 1400m last start beating home his main rivals here. This has been his target this prep and he has drawn to land midfield and get every chance to win again. He won the G1 Caulfield Guineas over 1600m then finished a lip 2nd in the G1 Cox Plate 2040 on a very soft track. He looks the class horse and his breeding suggests he will get through the heavy conditions. He should be very hard to beat here.


HILAL (3) made a race of it last start when pushing ANAMOE and was only beaten 0.21 L. He won the Bondi over this track and trip last prep and placed 2nd as a 2 year old in the G1 Champagne stakes. He looks the main danger again having drawn soft to get an economical run in transit. CONVERGE (2) finished 1.88L 3RD to ANAMOE last start and bodes a victory in the G1 JJ Atkins over 1600m in Brisbane. He also finished 3rd in the G1 champagne behind HILAL as a 2 year old. He is drawn well and will get every chance here.

Betting Approach:

(1) ANAMOE: 1 unit win @ $2.05
