PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Jubilation has raced well in his past three runs on the Valley turf, including placings over 1,800m and 2,200m, following his easy win in a prominent role over the dirt 1,800m in October. He should be well positioned to strike from barrier three under Zac Purton. Colourful Baron will need luck from his gate but relished a downgrade for a close second in a strong form race over this C&D last time out and cannot be taken lightly. El Valiente made a good impression late for sixth over 1,400m earlier this month in his first start after fetlock surgery and was an easy C&D winner off a higher mark this time last year. He should go close. Run Run Good has produced mixed results in his five starts this term but has run on for thirds once on each surface, including his latest effort over 1,400m.
