R4. Network Ten Handicap - 1 January 1970

Scott Embry | Thu 10 November, 2016


Old Mate





Hard to ignore the massive market move and win of Our Mate Al on Cup day. He was confidently backed from $6.50 into $3.60 and duly saluted for astute punters. He generally requires the pace on in races to hit the line but with Jarrad Noske in the saddle looks a completely different horse. He drops in weight and this looks again winnable. Hopetoun is loving being back at Ascot and won impressively last start, probably slides back from the alley and gets a track into the race 3 wide with cover from the 800 and if he is within 2 or 3 lengths as they corner will be hard to hold out. Astronomite continues to burn favourite frothers and from the inside gate, without W.Pike, he is again under the odds. 1400m is a much more suitable trip but proceed with caution. Pinzu is a month between runs and has bar plates on but his first-up run behind Krakka Vision was excellent.
