Speed Map

Should be a good tempo up front and can’t see them crawling along. Felicia, Sartorial Splendor, Oxley Road and Ashford Street will all be going for the lead with Mileva and Aysar not too far away from them. How Womantic with William Thomas probably round them up.

Key Runners

1:jockey silks Aysar

Not here. 

2:jockey silksWilliam Thomas

Can’t see any scenario that has him winning. 

3:jockey silks Sartorial Splendor 

We were on last week and happy to stick fat. Gets a good run, a repeat of last week’s effort will see her go pretty close.

4:jockey silks Oxley Road

The class runner and deserving favourite. Anything near his best probably wins. Have to be with it.

5:jockey silks Ashford Street

Drifter since markets opened. Scratched from last week but this looks harder again with pressure all around. Happy to leave alone.

6:jockey silksOutlaws Revenge

Not sure the form in SA will hold up here. $20 seems about right. 

7:jockey silks How Womantic

Good enough to make a shake of this but was lame last start and map is an issue. Happy to leave alone.

8:jockey silksMileva 

Opened favourite at some books but the price seemed a bit short. Will get the right run and good enough to win but would prefer around $6.

9:jockey silksFelicia

First run in a year and a half and no trial so you’re braver than me to bet. Watch the market.

10:jockey silksBless Her

Map doesn’t favour. Happy to leave alone.

11:jockey silksRainbiel

Would need others to have bad luck to have a hope.
