GOING: GOOD 4

Tab.Com.Au Mdn Hcp 1100m

Track: GOOD 4   Sunny (Max: 21)   Rail: Out 3m Entire. (Pent: 4.72).  

Small field but suspect the debutants can put some pace into it. MUNICH drops back in grade after a midfield sixth at Randwick in the Kindergarten Stakes last month. Kept ticking over since then with a Randwick barrier trial. Appears suited. BEIDI debuts off a solid trial over 900m at Rosehill. Drawn to get a cosy run from barrier 1. Half brother Sadler's Lake also possessed talent. WIN 'N' GRIN makes his debut after winning a Randwick trial on May 15. Keep in mind along with GOD OF THUNDER also on debut off a fair Rosehill trial effort. SUGGESTED PLAY: Siding with Munich for the win.

Third-up today and placed third-up in the past. Comes off a 46 day let-up. First-up with blinkers first time; 2nd in a small field at Warwick Farm 2yo C&G Mdn in Mar over 1000m, 3/4 len behind Lean Mean Machine carrying 57kg. Last start checked near 800m; 6th of 9 starters at Randwick in the G3 Kindergarten Apr 7 over 1100m, 4-1/2 len behind Paquirri with 56.5kg. Fitter now and making headway every start. Take beating.

First race starter by Stryker out of Mingshan. Ran third at a Rosehill trial over 900m on May 7. Drawn well and a similar run to trial form reads well in this race.

Facing the starter for the first time. Two-year-old colt by More Than Ready out of Jolie Bay. Put in an unimpressive effort over 900m at Rosehill on May 7. Looks up against it here and prefer others.

Two-year-old colt (Exceed And Excel - Candlelight) will no doubt benefit for the two trials prior to his debut today. Last trial was eighth at Rosehill over 900m trial on May 7. Query that he is forward enough to figure in the finish.

Two-year-old colt (I Am Invincible - Ladies Dancing) will no doubt benefit for the four trials prior to his debut today. Last trial ran 3rd at Muswellbrook barrier trial over 900m on May 4. Hard to have in this line up.

Having second run back today. Fresh up after four months jumped awkwardly; 6th of 10 starters at Gosford 2yo Mdn Apr 25 over 1000m, 5-1/4 len behind Pretty In Pink carrying 58kg. Previously second-up overraced middle stages; with blinkers first time; 8th of 13 runners at Randwick Inglis Nursery in Dec last year over 1000m, 4-1/4 len behind Irish Bet with 56kg. Look for better showing here.
