Star Form:

Notched a second win when successful in March over the Valley mile in Class Four. Never likely four times over the 1,400m to start this season, then had excuses in a mile failure at this level. Trip's a query. --2

Reeve's Muntjac responded well to get up 30m out from midfield for an upset win over this C&D latest following the addition of a nose band. He's holding his condition well and a repeat win from a good gate won't surprise. Wicker has shown life signs this term, including a speed-chasing fourth to Young Glory over the Valley 2,200m when last stepping out in late-October. He's drawn to get all favours and can figure in the finish. Golden Kid just out-finished rival Romantic Journey for a win 18-days back over the Valley 1,800m after placings in two of three other starts this term and has proven C&D form. He should map well and can make his presence felt despite carrying co-top weight. Virtus Star was badly held up early straight and got cleaned up 200m out in a luckless fourth to Golden Kid latest over the Valley 1,800m. He likely has a bottom in sight and will have Zac Purton to offset a wide gate.


CHAPARRAL STAR (A220)began awkwardly Over the last 50M was held up for clear running and because of that was not able to be ridden out to the end of the race - Race 219 GOLDEN KID (V232)on jumping was inconvenienced Rounding the Home Turn raced tight That resulted in the horse bumping with a runner on a number of occasions and became unbalanced - Race 201 DIVINE POWER (C175)after the 600M came under pressure - Race 219 REEVE'S MUNTJAC (C174)when questioned regarding the improved performance, trainer stated that the horse had been disappointing it its prior races He said the horse had been ridden in a forward position and from the rear in its races and had not finished off satisfactorily and therefore he issued no instructions to rider other than to have the horse travel wherever it was comfortable He said he believed that the horse may have been aided by the step up in distance to 1800M, but nonetheless prior to the race he felt the horse was a place chance at best - Race 161 MCMUNIGAL (B335)passing the winning post on the first occasion lost ground when crowded for room Then passing the 1400M raced tight - Race 209 VIRTUS STAR (B395)on jumping was inconvenienced After that was shifted across behind runners to obtain cover Near the 1500M raced tight Approaching the 400M was shifted out away from heels Rounding the Home Turn attempted to improve into very tight running That resulted in the horse bumping with a runner on a number of occasions and hampered when awkwardly placed close to heels Until near the 200M raced tight at which stage the horse was checked when crowded for room In that incident, the horse bumped a runner and became unbalanced - Race 201 WICKER (B425)rounding the Home Turn raced close to heels - Race 133 OUR GREEN (B448)on jumping bumped a runner when crowded for room Near the 450M raced tight - Race 201 STRAPPING BAUHINIA (B325)near the 1650M shifted in before being directed back out to relieve the tightening Approaching the winning post on the first occasion was steadied away from heels Near the 700M was bumped - Race 201 SKY GEM (C251)at the start was bumped Then was shifted across behind runners to obtain cover from the outside barrier Approaching the 50M got its head on the side after initially being directed in After that shifted in away from a runner - Race 201


Peter Ho's Proud Sky flourished during a gallop earlier in the week, running home in 22.9 seconds.
