Star Form:

Came out of a fading debut eighth after being headed for the lead 200m out lame as the third favourite last month over the Valley 1,200m. The straight 1,000m might suit him better. --3

Trust Me has trouble putting together two good runs but returned to form with a distant C&D second behind runaway winner Lucky More latest following a gear change to blinkers and gets in-form rider Karis Teetan. He must have claims. War Of Courage made a solid impression to run on a distant debut third in that Lucky More race from a low draw and should come on for this run. He'll go close. We The South is bred to be a sprinter and only knocked up final 100m after leading in blinkers in a recent dirt trial over the 1,200m. He might be worth inclusion at a price. Smart Of Youth did come out of a Valley failure after showing gate speed lame last month but will likely come on for this run and can improve with a switch to the straight 1,000m.


VALIANT DREAM (B416)approaching the 200M lay out under pressure When questioned regarding the performance, rider stated that he had ridden the horse in some of its work and in a barrier trial in the lead up to the race and that work had been good He said the horse did not travel comfortably at any stage of the race and did not show as much early speed as anticipated and that resulted in him having to ride it along for some distance in the early stages to obtain a forward position He said the horse was always under pressure to hold its position and then in the middle and latter stages lay out He added, in his opinion, the horse was very disappointing in the race and he was not able to offer any explanation for the poor run - Race 191 KA FORTUNE (C421)began very awkwardly and lost ground - Race 191 SMART OF YOUTH (C435)at the start shifted in abruptly and bumped a runner Then a short distance after that bumped with another runner After the race was examined by the vet who said the horse to be lame in its right front leg - Race 053 STAR OF THEHARBOUR (C078)at the entrance to the Straight was awkwardly placed close to heels when being shifted out After that raced with its head on the side and lay in and passing the 100M raced tight Then continued to lay in until passing the winning post - Race 203 WAR OF COURAGE (C483)at the start bumped with a runner Passing the 500M shifted in and bumped a runner - Race 191 AURORA STEED (C023)approaching the 700M was momentarily steadied - Race 191 TANG TREASURE (C390)on jumping got its head up when being steadied to obtain cover For some distance after the 900M travelled keenly when being steadied to obtain cover Then making the turn after the 600M was bumped and shifted out - Race 098 TRUST ME (C134)near the 600M was shifted out away from heels - Race 191 TARGET FINDER (C154)near the 250M shifted out under pressure - Race 238
