GOING: SOFT 6

C.E Bartlett 2yo Mdn Plate 1200m

Track: SOFT 6   PM Showers (Max: 19)   Rail: True Entire Circuit. (Pent: 5.76).  

Not much form to go off here with plenty of these stepping out on debut.   AMERICAN GENIUS finished third in all three runs last campaign and he returns today in easier off a barrier trial win. Blinkers go off today and he looks the one they have to beat. BANISH picked up where she left off when third at Caulfield last start and has now placed in both career outings. Shapes up as the main danger with JOHN'S REVENGE the best of the rest third up.   SUGGESTED PLAY: American Genius straight out.

Resuming after a four months break. Finished off last preparation 3rd of 8 starters at Flemington 2yo Plate in Dec last year over 1100m, 2-1/4 len behind King's Authority with 57kg. First ever race start 3rd of 11 starters at Flemington in the LR Maribyrnong Trl in Oct last year over 1000m, 2-3/4 len behind Madeenaty with 57kg. Promising type who is fitter for trial win; conditions favour for bold showing.

First race starter by Foxwedge out of Dance To My Tune. Makes his debut here in what looks a tricky race for him. On profile he seems hard pressed.
