Despite taking on the big boys and girls for the first, the Team Hawkes trained Brutal has been best backed to take out the Southern Cross Stakes (1200m) at Randwick this Saturday.
The three year old hasn’t raced since the Spring, where he kept his unbeaten record in tact before injury forced him in the paddock. He has trialled on a couple of occasions, the latest on Monday at Rosehill, and looked pretty good there. He is at $1.80 to resume a winner after opening even money.
The horse that looks silly odds is Lanciato, who is first up. We know he’s a brilliant finale on him and his trials have been encouraging. Been $13 in from $16 already and I suspect could start a tad shorter.
