On track: Sincero and jockey Michael Rodd will team up in today’s Cox Plate.LANNISTER (Race 1, No. 5)
I’ve got a nice opinion of her. I galloped her at Moonee Valley on Tuesday morning and she felt like a two-year-old with quite a bit of potential. Things won’t be easy from the barrier, as she’s likely to be caught wide, but has ability.
BEYOND PARDON (Race 2, No. 6)
He’s the oldest horse in the race, but he’s always been a genuine, honest sprinter in every preparation he tackles. He’s nice and fresh here and should get a terrific run from the barrier – and he’s always a threat in this grade.
SUPER COOL (Race 5, No. 4)
Very honest and his past three efforts have been strong. Having said that though, the very short-priced favourite, It’s A Dundeel, is going to be extremely hard to beat. But if he runs a forward race here, we’ll probably have a look at the derby next Saturday for him.
ILLO (Race 7, No. 4)
Michael Walker rode him the other day and thought he was working into the race like a winner, but he appeared to find the ground a bit hard. He’s a good horse on his day and if there’s a bit of sting out of the ground he’ll be right in the finish.
SINCERO (Race 8, No. 2)
Has had a faultless lead-up to this year’s Cox Plate. He’s got a terrific turn of foot when he needs it, which is always a major asset in a Cox Plate. Sure, he’s going to need some luck from his awkward barrier, but I wouldn’t discount him.
TRANQUERA (Race 9, No. 8)
Very honest filly who never runs a bad race, although she is rising in grade here. She’s good enough to cope with that and I would expect from the draw she’ll be right in the mix.
