GOING: S

Xmas Parties @ N'cle Plate-C1 2100m

Track: SOFT 5   Partly Cloudy   Rail: True.  

Miss You Ma and Grand Teton can make the pace. EVANESCE is still a Maiden but was close up at Canterbury 3U and will be better for it. Gets the blinkers first time and Avdulla and expect the middle distance to the Godolphin galloper. GRAND TETON broke Maidens 3U and is getting better as the trips lengthen. He looks the danger. THE WORLD OVER pulled up with an issue last start but was tracking well prior. He’ll bounce. CRIMSON HALO is also in the mix.  SUGGESTED PLAY: This looks a nice race for Evanesce down at the bottom of the weights and backing to win.
