A big Hawkesbury meeting this afternoon, highlighted by the running of the $150,000 Ladies Day Cup over 1600m, throws up four things of massive interest for the real racing fan.

Firstly, can LOOKS LIKE ELVIS (All America-Savalook) impress the sox off the ladies and claim the Ladies Day Cup?

It’s a fascinating contest. I like the fact LOOKS LIKE ELVIS is in this race today. He is very classy at this level when right and he did fly home with Jess Taylor on top for 5th in the Gr 1 Epsom over this trip recently. That form is better than his rivals. So, with luck in running he might swamp all of them late.

ARCHEDEMUS (Lope de Vegas-Carolyn’s Star) is the speed, well him and probably QUINTESSA and he will be very, very strong in this. He’s found a ;length of two since transferring stables and Is 3rd up here so he looks to be well placed.

Chris Waller’s SAVACOOL (Savabeel-Chilled Out) won the Rowley Mile at this track a few months back, over this trip and just lives for races like this. She is very fit and will get back. But she will be the one flying home late. It’s therefore a good race.

But outside that, three other things to watch out for add another level of interest in the day.

Firstly: In race 2 we see the return of a boomed filly named BROOK’S BATTLE (Hinchinbrook-Andromache). She was backed from $9.20 into $6.00 on debut and ran a close-up 5th, making ground late. On paper, that looked disappointing, but the winner was Doubtland who beat Miss Canada. Both horses would win this race by palings of the fence.

Secondly: The import HARPO MARX (Galileo-Nechita) who is by the same sire as Melbourne Cup runner-up Tiger Moth, resumes here. He has raced the great Stradivarius when in England and his four Aussie starts haven’t been great. But this is his 2nd prep and he has been heavily backed overnight.

Thirdly: We see the return to the track of another filly who has had tongues wagging. SAHRA (Hinchinbrook-Desert End) has had two starts to date and she resumes in race 5 today. She won her maiden with her head on her chest, then came to town and was sensationally supported. She ran 2nd, but one of the very best colts in the land, North Pacific beat her home. There is money all over the place for her today.

Good luck, It’s Now Or Never for Elvis and the trio above.

See what I did there.
