Tomorrow sees the racing program move to Moonee Valley for the running of the Group 1 Australia Stakes. It’s another sprint and Apache Cat will be endeavouring to make it two in a row. He certainly does look to be the one to beat as he handles the Moonee Valley track well and is in form. Miss Finland will be competing too, along with former top Sydney sprinter Dance Hero. It promises to be an interesting race.
Maldivian last week did not impress, so I have second thoughts on his ability to be competitive this autumn. The fillies I was interested in didn’t do too badly with Sugar Babe and Burgeis at least running strongly into second and third places in the Blue Diamond Prelude.
Several other horses in my top 30 stable are racing in Sydney tomorrow – God’s Hand, She’s Meaner, Stripper and Empire’s Choice. I’ll be following their progress through the afternoon.
