Caulfield Quaddie Preview

Track/Rail: True, expecting it to play even

Race 6

#2 Super Cash (A.Noblet / C.Williams)
Won this race last year. Good horse fresh. Hard to beat
#6 Merchant Navy (A.J.Purcell / M.J.Zahra)
Quality colt resuming. Only beaten once in career. Will be strong late, horse to beat.
#7 Prezado (M.Ellerton & S.Zahra / D.Symons)
Ran terrific down the straight behind boom colt Nature Strip. Will be hitting the line hard here. 
#8 Ardrossan (M.Price / M.J.Dee)
Former unbeaten NZer who has trialled impressively leading into this. 

Race 7

#1 Levendi (P.Gelagotis / D.Oliver)
Quality colt who resumes off short break from Spring. Unbeaten first up and will be strong late.

#2 Villermont (A.J.Purcell / L.Nolen)
Quality colt who won G2 Sandown Guineas. Will be strong late.
#5 Prevailing Winds (D.Weir / D.M.Lane)
Fit 3yo who steps to trip for first time and has wide draw but does have fitness on it’s side. 
#7 Black Sail (NZ) (A.J.Purcell / R.Baylis)
Consistent colt who was always close up in races in the Spring. Doesn’t know how to run a bad race. 
#8 Island Missile (P. & P.Snowden / D.Dunn)
Sydney galloper who has produced good runs past couple. Looks suited this trip.

Race 8

#1 Hartnell (GB) (J.Cummings / C.Williams)
Resumes here. Best runs are fresh. Trialled nicely for this. Wide draw slight concern.

#2 Black Heart Bart (D.Weir / B.Rawiller)
Resumes off short break. Terrific record this track and distance. Maps well. Horse to beat. 
#3 Tosen Stardom (JPN) (D.Weir / D.M.Lane)
Was well held first up last prep aleit off a longer spell. Dramatically improved second up before winning two G1’s later in prep. Will be strong late but wide barrier slight concern. 
#6 Tshahitsi (C.Crook & I.Miller / B.McCoull)
Ran terrific second up this track and distance. Maps to get across on pace. Looks one at good odds. 
#8 Thronum – D. & B.Hayes & T.Dabernig / M.J.Zahra)
Racing consistently. Maps to race on pace. Has a chance. 
#9 Dollar for Dollar (A.J.McEvoy / J.Kah)
Floated a little bit when second up off short break. Gets blinkers on here. Should be able to run to it’s best.

Race 9

#1 Silent Sedition (A.Noblet / C.Williams)
Quality mare who resumes. Ran second in this race last year narrowly beaten. Good record this track and distance. 
#5 Flippant (P. & P.Snowden / M.J.Dee)
Ran well first up from spell and then slightly disappointing second up but prepared to forgive run, can bounce back here.
#8 Fragonard (J.Cummings / D.M.Lane)
Only had one run in the spring before being turned out. Unbeaten fresh, resumes here. Has trialled terrifically leading into this.
