Sir John Monash Stakes
Group Racing is back in Victoria with the Group 3 Sir John Monash Stakes taking place at Caulfield this Saturday. Let’s try and find the winner.
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.
Can’t see any scenario that has him winning.
3: 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: Oxley Road
The class runner and deserving favourite. Anything near his best probably wins. Have to be with it.
5: Ashford Street
Drifter since markets opened. Scratched from last week but this looks harder again with pressure all around. Happy to leave alone.
Not sure the form in SA will hold up here. $20 seems about right.
7: How Womantic
Good enough to make a shake of this but was lame last start and map is an issue. Happy to leave alone.
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.
First run in a year and a half and no trial so you’re braver than me to bet. Watch the market.
Map doesn’t favour. Happy to leave alone.
Would need others to have bad luck to have a hope.
