PHILIP WOO’S FORMLINE

Universal Go Go was only denied a third Valley win when coming away with seconds behind the talented True Grit in his final two C&D runs last season. He'll need luck from his gate but saluted first-up last term and is an each-way chance. High Rev followed up a barnstorming 1,400m win in June with a close second and a devastating win over this C&D and will likely come on from a non-threatening sixth up in grade over an unsuitable 1,200m. He's the main danger. Arcada blossomed with a return to the Valley mile mid-season for two wins and did have to work to press the pace from a wide gate in a failure last month. He's perfectly drawn with the claim well utilised and will go close. Acclaimed Light ended last season in a good patch of form and should map well from gate two. He's a place chance.

TROUBLE IN RUNNING

WIN WIN (B472)began awkwardly, shifted out and bumped a runner Then was buffeted between other runners and became unbalanced After that was shifted across behind runner Post-race vet inspection did not show any significant findings, however, the horse was unable to be scoped due to being fractious - Race 056 EARTH TRILOGY (C211)when questioned regarding the performance, rider stated that it was intended for the horse to be ridden just behind the speed if possible He said despite riding the horse along in the early stages, it did not muster speed and then was left racing three wide after passing the winning post on the first occasion He said although forced to race wide, the horse at all times had cover and he became concerned with the manner in which the horse was travelling passing the 800M as it came under heavy pressure He said the horse did not respond to his riding and then was disappointing in the manner in which it failed to finish off the race He added after the race the horse appeared to pull up well which left him with the impression that it may not have handled the All Weather surface at its first time of asking under race conditions - Race 774 LOOKING GOOD (B256)near the 50M shifted out away from a runner and was awkwardly placed close to heels Consequently was not able to be ridden out over the concluding stages - Race 038
