The Watchdog has been quite ‘frank’, if you’ll excuse the pun, in his assessment of the Group 1 Maturity Classic final over 525 metres at The Meadows tonight.
His prognostication sees Feral Franky taking top billing, with the NSW raider poised to pillage more Victorian spoils – $100,000 to be exact – in the prestigious event.
Feral Franky has a ‘picket fence’ form line, having won his past nine starts. And he’s drawn to perfection in box one considering his five starts from this alley have netted four wins and a second placing.
His stakes will spiral over the $400,000 mark if he takes out the Maturity Classic which, incidentally, will be his seventh Group race final appearance.
Check out Feral Franky’s powerful 29.98sec heat win, coming from the tail of the field, from box seven:
