Looked on track after the Bart Cummings. Then came back in trip for Caulfield Cup and that was more or less a barrier trial for this. If there is one horse from the Caulfield Cup behind Incentivise I can warm to as a knockout chance, it’s this guy. Dry track yes, 3200m yes, big track yes…I think he only runs well.

Short Summary: Ticking along for the Melbourne Cup. Don’t think he’ll measure up here.
Kingston Town Stakes (2000m), September 18 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface
He was second up here and given the way the track played, which was against his pattern, I thought his run was a definite pass mark on wet ground, something he traditionally doesn’t fancy. Montefilia franked this form in the Metropolitan.
Bart Cummings (2520m), October 2 2021, Flemington, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface
This run confirmed he’s ticking along nicely for the Melbourne Cup. Sat near a strong speed with the big weight and battled on really well when fourth to Grand Promenade. This was a high rating race relative to the meeting.
Caulfield Cup (2400m), October 16 2021, Caulfield, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface
On paper, it was a nothing run, but watching the replay and the sectionals, his finale was screaming of a horse wanting further and a bigger track. His late splits were pretty good for the race.
