The Watchdog says
? : She is rising significantly in class, but she has turned in some big performances in recent months and with TYPHOON SAMMY (1) and HANDSOME RHINO (2) expected to go together in the initial stages, she should get a nice run through mid-race, and she represents value for the place.

? Must Watch Race ?

Sixth heat of Group 2 Horsham Cup

? Horsham ? Race 9
? 485m ⏱ 5:49pm

The Watchdog says ?: Horsham 485m track record holder SODA TITAN (1) should get all the breaks and score, while the powerful CRACKERJACK KEG (3) can charge home into second spot.

‘Must Watch Race’ Preview ?:

SODA TITAN (1) recently broke the track record here with a breathtaking 26.66sec victory over the brilliant ASTON TITAN and he is drawn to take a power of beating again. There isn’t a lot of genuine early speed in this event, so with a clean getaway, he should be able to navigate the bend in the top two and they will have a hard time holding him out. CRACKERJACK KEG (3) is an interesting runner. He can be a tad hard to follow at times, but he has elite talent and if he gets a look at them mid race, he could cause an upset. BOSTON GARDEN (4) has drawn poorly again, and he will need to begin well to get into contention.

The Watchdog says
? : YAMASAKI BALE (8) and YAHIRO BALE (8) are both star prospects and they look very well graded in their respective events. WHERE’S THE BEES (1) has the right draw and he has returned to form in recent weeks, so with a clean getaway, he should be able to hit the scoreboard.
