Risking the Kal Pair

Selections

.

I am willing to risk Kalgoorlie pair Bollywood Blitz and Burkina in the opening leg of the quaddie. They have both had fairly long preparations and make the journey down from the Goldfields to Ascot. I think the two horses at the top of the race book in Proxy and All Too Much will have them covered over 1800. Proxy was a very impressive winner at Belmont over a mile before stepping up to 2200m where he was found wanting over the final stages with dour stayers Fathoms of Gold and Midnight Banquet having his measure dictating from the front. Dropping back to 1800m I think Proxy will go very close to winning. All Too Much should get a very soft run behind the leader or leading himself from barrier 1 and can control the tempo of the race. Should give a sight at his first look at a middle distance. Studio Fifty Four doesn't win out of turn but his effort behind subsequent winner Prying Tom was good and he should get a lovely run on the speed.

mostly from horses that led and weakened over shorter distances, and then stepped up in distance, and of course they normally lead again, but at a much more relaxed tempopeople are so good at misconstruing that.they tend to think if you weaken at shorter it's ...

Carey, Your comment above took me a long time to learn theoretically. And then it happened a few times with horses I owned. Obviously it is not a rule but I reckon you are spot on.One of the biggest misconceptions in horse racing.

when i cared, there were numerous factors to do with pace and positioning.but basically handy is best at any track over any distance, in any type of race.statistics prove it is so.which is why i reckon pike's record would be better if he was allowed to ride th...

Ok. thanks for responding. I tend to only want to back the fillies and colts at WFA or middle distances when they go forward. I heard Craig Williams saying this morning that he expected Yankee Rose to go back in the CP because when she went forward she failed ...

i have no idea what it would have done on the dry.i didn't think it could win before the race, and the fact that it ended up heavy means that i may have been right in the dry, but we will never know.delicay might not have done as well either.it was only an 180...

@Carey Do you think Perfect Reflection would have beaten Delicacy home on a dry track if they were in the same position as they were on that track? The intention was always to go back before the rain arrived on race day.

and in that race(KT) the pace was massive, where leaders had buckleys and none.how much did you win on that rodent? I tend to think tempo is less important when the track is in the heavy range-it becomes more about finding the better ground and building mom...

Never known a horse like Flytego.As soon as he gets to Ascot he puts in.To the naked eye I thought he had run 2nd and was raging once they put the numbers up on Sky.Thankfully he got on the podium, just..
