TWO runs in the opening event yesterday were worth noting for future reference. Lightly-raced Eighteen Twelve will win soon and Tactics is unlikely to go out at his 70-1 quote next time following a good fourth. Eighteen Twelve finished a gallant third and must come on from this run while Tactics was right behind him, beaten a short head. King Star could be dangerous shortly. He ran a fair race in the third. Brian Kan will get a race out of Happy Guy following his third-placed effort in the sixth event and second-placed Thunder Bolt will appreciatea longer race than yesterday's 1,400 metres. Crown Commander is another one to watch.
