On Saturday nine high-quality individuals line up, with the classy Tiffy Pumper filly Libra Starz returning to her best distance. From a perfect draw with top man Maurice Dadabie in the irons, she will make a bold bid for top honours. The superbly talented galloper Big Bad Authority, may have run one too many thirds for her connections’ liking but ran a gutsy chaser to Libra Starz in the heat last time and could relish the extra 300m in ground. Both Pembe Yele and Time Soprano ran very decent preps when fourth and second respectively. A decent chance for both from the draws. Valasca Twelve hasn’t had plenty of racing, but showed up well in her prep last time behind Jacintaflyer. This will be tougher and the Chaotic Neutral galloper could well hold her own here.

Pre-race comments from:
C M Pace Ranch – “Courses Affair is turning out to be a solid second tier horse of this age group. The top trained are starting to get way ahead of us. This one still won’t come under any instruction. I’m more and more temped to send her out loose on the lead and let her run into the ground like she wants.”
flying spurs – “Unlikely starter.”
Chaotic Neutral – “Looks like the conditions may turn from slow to dead, which means Libra Starz and Time Soprano who would be hands-down favs in slow conditions will lose the muddie edge. On a dead track, I see Big Bad Authority being ahead of Jacintaflyer. As for my pony, Valasca Twelve… well… she’s unpredictable, eh? The qualifier was her first run ever and she did well. With a lot of luck she can break into the top 3, but realistically rounding out the top 5 is all I can aim for.”
Slo Mo Stables – “Should be a good race! We will have to see how the weather is.”
Yorulmaz – “”If the track turns to dead we will have a change. It would be an exciting race to see.”
Burgersfortheboyz – “Still undecided if we will run the horse should the track stay wet. As there are 3 muddies in the race we may only be running for a best case scenario 4th . I have heard of rain dancing but we will be doing a sun lap dance instead.
woodchuckers – “Ground will be dead so makes the job harder for Libra Starz. It a simple case of a improved run in a final for me. So Libra is a top 3 chance on exposed form I guess with Big Bad Authority the competitive the favorite other dangers Pembe Yele and Time Soprano.
