The Chosen One Information

He is a dead set dry track horse, so pen the Caulfield Cup effort. He was good in the Herbert Power…but can he improve out of sight and trouble Incentivise? On exposed form, it’s a no.

Short Summary: Ran well in this race last year and is going better 12 months on. Just the wet track concerns me.

Underwood Stakes (1800m), September 25 2021, Sandown, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Given the race shape, he had little chance of winning, but was far from disgraced in defeat when a closing fourth Zaaki. Probabeel, who ran second, won the Might And Power on Saturday, so the form has been ticked off.

Herbert Power (2400m), October 9 2021, Caulfield, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

Really good tune up run. He got back in the run, using this as more or less a barrier trial for the Caulfield Cup. He worked home with purpose to finish second to Delphi and off this run, he’s definitely heading into the big race in good form.

Caulfield Cup (2400m), October 16 2021, Caulfield, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

He got back in the run and was never really a winning threat, just whacking away out the back, but beaten some 11 lengths by Incentivise in a plain effort.
