I recognise the task ahead for AWASITA with this big weight, but gee this represents a big drop in garde for her and my automatic default mechanism always sees that as an overwhelming positive. Plus, she doesn't have far to travel from her home base. The draw is great and I just see her being near enough to last on the bend and flashing home. Drop back to 1000m suits too, as they will go that little bit harder out in front, meaning they will stop quicker.
Race 8 - 4:55pm
Good little Class 1 this. I really liked the way LONGCHAMP LASS gathered them in when resuming in maiden grade last start. It was only 1100m but she wound them up, put them to the sword with some ease and ran away to win comfortabl;y. Sure, this is tougher with unbeaten Munjai to take care of, but this filly has guts and a finishing burst.
