Insane In The Baraki Brain

Baraki Beats makes my ex girlfriend look sane. The best part about this barrier rogue is you know you are always a good chance of having a collect, even if it is from a late scratching. Understandably Jim Taylor has said enough is enough (and a bit like my ex missus) has been shipped off to another yard. If Fenella Martin can get this horses barrier issues under control she could have a very exciting time ahead. If he pings the lids here and leads like we all know he can, he simply may not give the rest a look in. He is that type of horse. A 'win only' betting proposition.
Profit Street appears the obvious danger, but you do know with Baraki Beats involved that this will be a truly run 1400m. The distance is already a query for the enigmatic Profit Street before you factor in the 60kgs and likely tempo of the race. I'd be happy taking him on at the $2.20 currently on offer. Classical Prince is going well for new trainer Neville Parker but the 1400m is a query for him too.

Happy giving Baraki Beats one last chance (yes, I will probably say that again next start). Win only, the $11 looks over the odds.
