Opened $26 so pleased to see early support. Trialled up really well prior to resuming in the Fireball where I thought she was quite good, working home well nearer the inside behind I Am Excited. John Thompson looks to have trained her to have speed in the legs whereas last prep she was being aimed at the Oaks. Definite threat.
Gee I can’t believe the gap between herself and Nettoyer. The ride from Collett won the race for the mare in the Aspiration, saving ground nearer the inside before getting the split and dashing at the right time to score. Wet track and 1900m is certainly no disadvantage for her, plus she has upside, so she’s very likeable herself.
This mare hasn’t won for just under 12 months but I reckon her last six months have been unbelievable against the best of the best outside Winx. Three runs back this time in have been super, the latest coming in the Australian Cup where the bias probably beat her in the end yet she still produced some of the fastest splits of the race in the quicksand behind Harlem. 2000m, back home in Sydney, wet track, hard fit, in form, she’ll do me.
I thought her Sweet Embrace win was outstanding. Few weeks between runs, first run racing clockwise, sat three/four wide throughout yet still finished best and on the line she pricked the ears, a good sign that she something left. Proven at a hard 1200m, has upside, and a wet track certainly no issue for her. Her and Sunlight are the two for me.
