R3. Eskimo Joe Performing Next Saturday Handicap - 1 January 1970

Scott Embry | Thu 10 November, 2016


Toughest Test To Date





State Solicitor has answered every question posed of him so far but on Saturday, rising to 58kg, drawn barrier 11 of 11 and missing the services of the state's best in W.Pike who is out suspended it will take a career best performance to win. He won effortless last start but that being said got a lovely run inside of Lenience over the concluding stages and never went around another horse. He is exiciting but if he is ever going to get rolled in 72+ grade it will be on Saturday. King River has bar plates added to racing gear which is a huge concern but if he sees daylight from barrier 1 then can ping late. Red Publisher was bitterly disappointing first-up when carrying 60.5kg and caught three and four wide the trip from barrier 5. He drops to 53.5 here and meets King River a massive 7kg better at the weights for beating him home at Belmont Park in May.
