Shock Shock should roll forward from barrier seven and take some catching here. The horse is never too far away and despite the fourth placed finish at Pakenham last-start on February 1, it finished within a length of the winner.
Glifi Nifin Arkis has finished inside the first-four in three of its four career runs and looms as the best winning threat in this race. In a contest that lacks early speed the horse should get across from barrier six to lead and take a world of beating.
Shierro was well supported on debut and failed miserably, but the Lindsay Park runner obviously showed something for the price to be so short. The horse is running for the first time since that poor showing on September 5 of last year, and we’re anticipating a much improved galloper.
Doves Cry returns to the scene of its maiden victory back on November 28 and is the best placed galloper to make it two wins from three starts. Last-start at this grading the daughter of Street Cry went down by just over a length at the Valley, and from barrier two here it should be winning this race.
