(1) California Spangle drew 13 in the Classic Mile last start and had Matthew Chadwick on board instead of his regular rider Zac Purton. He was run down by Romantic Warrior who made it 5/5, but he enjoyed a gun run throughout whereas California Spangle had to work across from the wide draw. The barriers are basically reversed today with California Spangle drawing well and Romantic Warrior drawing wide, and Purton gets back on CS. Think he can turn the tables.

I was keen to be with Sauvestre who is knocking on the door but I just think he’s bumped into a very smart one here in (6) Running Glory. He had no luck on debut when held up the entire straight, no luck second up when planted wide throughout, and has then gone on to win his next two. Didn’t get it easy last start and proved too good anyway. Drawn awkwardly again here but how often do we see these Size horses just keep winning? Think with even luck he wins again.

A trip to Hong Kong quickly had Tim hooked to the racing caper, maintaining the best place anywhere in the world on a Wednesday night is Happy Valley. He holds a strong interest in the Hong Kong form, along with the metropolitan racing in Sydney and Melbourne. He’s a fan of dry tracks, Zac Purton and takes particular interest in identifying patterns in the form. Tim wears many hats, juggling the roles of form analyst, jockey manager and racehorse owner.
