Chris Nelson’s Preview

RACE 2 No.2 Mogador

Hopefully the start of a good day for the Godolphin yard with this Lonhro colt who didn’t have the clearest of runs at Scone last time out only spotting daylight over the concluding stages, once in the open he really picked up closing off strongly with the steadier of 60.5kg on his back! With a bit more room to move tomorrow he can make amends.

RACE 5 No.2 Souchez

Hopefully the second leg of the Godolphin double with this youngster who was clearly the best run in the Champagne Stakes held here a couple of weeks ago. That was his first outing for 2 months and he was very strong to the line late over the 1200m trip, up to 1350m tomorrow he’ll gain the run of the race off the inside gate and should be winning!

RACE 8 No.4 Mackintosh

Now this horse could well end up being the find of the winter carnival. Very impressive winning first up for the Chris Waller stable at Hawkesbury before dominant here in the Rough Habit a fortnight back leading throughout. If he doesn’t choose to lead tomorrow Blake Shinn can take a trail from the good gate and land the run of the race, either way he’s going to be very hard to beat once again. Bring on the Derby next!
