Runner Comments

1. Smart As You Think7L back, peeled 600m, close turn, held ground 2.5L at Moonee Valley F&M Bm84 over 1600m. 4L back, 3 wide from 800m, boxed on OK straight 4.3L Tressady Group 3 over 1400m. Sharp drop in grade and distance will suit.
2. Tiffany's LassLed good tempo, collared 400m, faded in straight 9.6L at Flemington Qlty over 2500m. 5L back, under whip turn on rail, battled home 6.5L Mannerism Group 3 over 1400m. Can run ok second-up at this level..
3. Esposito GoldRailed to lead, headed 300m, faded badly straight 5.5L at Caulfield F&M Bm78 over 1600m. 3L back, peeled 400m, ran on, too strong last 100m 1L at The Valley F&M Bm70 over 1600m. Harder here but does run well at this track/distance.
4. Herecomesmybaby5L back, 3 wide no cover, beaten turn, tough run 10L at Flemington F&M Bm84 over 1600m. Last 6L back, off bit prior turn, last 100m good 2.5L at Hillside F&M Bm70 over 1400m.
5. Birth Of VenusFought the race out well for second 3.8L at Killarney Hcp over 2259m. No serious threat into fifth 4L at Leopardstown Hcp over 2579m.
6. WinkelmannKeen, pushed 2nd 900m, peaked turn, boxed on well 2.1L at Moonee Valley Mares Bm78 over 1600m Soft 7. Led even tempo, headed 300m, battled on well 2.5L at Flemington F&M Bm84 over 1700m. Can win first-up.
7. Pria EclipseSat behind leader, drove through tight gap 100m 0.1L at Lakeside F&M Bm70 over 1600m. 2nd holding rail, under pump 500m, didn't respond 4.2L at The Valley F&M Bm70 over 1600m.
8. Music of the NightOutside leader, under pump prior turn, stuck OK 3.7L at Caulfield Bm84 over 2000m. 8L back, same turn, ran home OK for easier race 6.4L Tressady Group 3 over 1400m. Easier company here and 1600m should suit.
