Daily Mail: ‘Zac’ is back for Sale Cup heats

G1 Topgun Stayers runner Zac’s Entity is facing Sale Distance Championship winner Invictus Rising and G1 Hume Cup winner Knicks Bale in a terrific second heat of the G1 Sale Cup this evening.

G3 Sir John Dillon Memorial placegetter Omega Tyson, G3 Fireball winner Hank The Hustler and the in-form Trending Rookie should produce a great battle in the first heat.

G1 Bold Trease placegetter Mepunga Ruby stands out in the third heat, while two-time G1 champion Gypsy Wyong and dual Group placed Jarick Bale clash in the fourth heat.

The Watchdog says
? : He really has gone to another level since stepping up in distance and from the inside draw tonight, there should be no excuses. He is normally quite reliable at box rise, so he should exit the bend in the top three and then go to work in the middle stages. There are a couple of good ones in this event, but I think he can get the job done.

The Watchdog says ?: ZAC’S ENTITY (6) really is a generational talent and with the scratching of McCOOLY’S LAD (7), he should be afforded a clean run into the first turn and then head to the back straight in a threatening position. He recently trialled around The Meadows in a ridiculous 29.54sec and with a clear passage tonight, he should give the track record (36.66sec) a nudge.

‘Must Watch Race’ Preview ?:

It was a big night for the Greenough camp at The Meadows and I think their great run will continue this evening with ZAC’S ENTITY (6) in the second heat of the Group 1 Sale Cup. He comes into this having had six weeks off and after trialling in breathtaking fashion at The Meadows, a forward showing is expected. The scratching of McCOOLY’S LAD (7) is a big plus for him, as he should now avoid early bother and get every chance to balance up initially. With a clear passage throughout, there is every chance the track record may go (36.66sec). INVICTUS RISING (1) will be the second pick in the market and if he can reproduce a similar performance to his past three, he is a huge chance of qualifying for next Sunday night’s final, while GYPSY TOOWOOMBA (2) has been looking for this journey and could cause a minor upset.
