Highest data quality for the day for the feature down the straight six. A race like this often throws up an odd result, when weaker horses from big stables take it to lesser performed higher class horses. The data suggests that the lower ranked horses take up the running on a moderate pace, and the class runners wait for their time to strike. Experience down the straight probably counts for more than data suggestions, but hard to quantify straight racing experience. So we will stick to the data. Do the swoopers beat the kick? If so, which one? That’s why they give you odds.
||Old boy should settle midfield and data says he will close well. Likes the Flemington straight, top jockey should help.
||Should jump well and travel on the pace. Question is hitting the line first time down the straight first up.
||Heart Of A Lion
||Should get out well and give a showing with a strong kick, but data suggests getting swooped late.
||Class horse happy to see them fight for the lead, and poised to pounce. Due.
||Should get out well and run a consistent pace, but data suggests nothing explosive to win this race.
||TV time in the lead that should fall away as it gets serious. But DK Weir. Who knows.
||Should lead them out, and low weight should keep her in touch but this class might be too much. Has been backed though.
||Old favourite that should bolt early. Away from the Valley, hard to have him in the finish.
||No data suggests this horse will know which way it went. Hope she learns from the experience, and the owners have a great day.
