Alligator Blood vs Catalyst vs Superstorm vs Alabama Express vs Dalasan vs Chenier

I'm leaning toward Catalyst.

Alligator Blood was 4th up last time vs 2nd up for Catalyst and that residual fitness plus 1kg weight pull might have been the difference at the post. Race pattern suited Alligator Blood more as well. Up to the mile at level weights and the extra run under the belt I think Catalyst can turn around that half head margin.

Alabama Express? Hard to knock G1 WFA winning form. Not convince about the quality of the Orr however. How would the two above have gone in that field. I'll let him pass here but could easily be proven wrong.

Dalasan isn't quite up to the level of these. Superstorm no chance.

Chenier a real interesting runner. Only 3 career starts and was far from disgraced against the best 3yos. They sprinted a bit quick for him but loved how he ran through the line. A bit more early pressure and the extra furlong could bring him right into it. I'll have a saver on him if he drifts in the market. A touch too short at the moment IMO. $8.00 would be nice.

Brilliant win against a quality field. Catalyst loomed up at the top of the straight but couldn't sustain the run and was disappointing. Alabama Express went ordinary. Something amiss or did he peak last start? Might need some form of redemption for his stud career.

Superstorm powered the last furlong. Needed more pressure up front and might have tested the winner.

Chenier is one to follow. Approaching the 600 he dipped and nearly fell. Kept in touch and ran super sectionals. He's from a Zabeel mare so could train on strongly as a 4/5yo.

I think Alabama Express had some issues after his last run, it took a lot out of him. He found nothing today. He will be standing at stud in Victoria, I assume after this prep.

Flight Stakes was a cracking race, Funstar will be very hard to beat 2nd up.

Luckily one sport is surviving (all be it by the skin of it's teeth)....

70k+ jobs at stake, and thousands of horses..

Some big changes in QLD racing in attempt to keep operating while managing risk and complying with all social distancing requirements. The most recent has been regional restrictions to keep people and horse movement to a minimum.

Glad they’re adapting. Syndicators and trainers are being hit hard.

Big day of racing at Rosehill tomorrow. I like Diplomatico (e/w), Verry Ellegant (w) and Probabeel (w).

Diplomatico nice odds so worth something each way. Kementari the interesting runner as he's now been gelded. I'm each way on Handle the Truth. Good record track, distance and 2nd up.

Verry Elegant looks a stand out on last run and odds reflect that. Avilius could be the big improver over 2400.

Probabeel the main hope of knocking off Funstar. Those two are stand outs.....which means something else will win. :)

Haha, well it was a huge run from Shout The Bar. Deserved to win.

Diplomatico on the other hand, cardiac arrhythmia apparently. If he trials well, I wonder if they’ll have a crack at the All Aged Stakes. Roll the dice on him as a 4 year old Entire. Travelling him to QLD for the winter carnival may not be possible, given the circumstances.

Qld Winter Carnival has been canned. Travel restrictions would limit it to
locals only and may need to save the money.

Yeah that’s a big shame, but understandable.

Reminiscing about the good times when we could actually attend a race meet ... I Just saw Racing.com on Facebook, they love showing the replays of Chautauqua’s 6 group 1’s. That 3rd consecutive TJ win was just absurd.

Everything said he wouldn’t win - The whole prep leading up to that run, where they tried him up in distance... to be about 15 lengths off them and under the whip coming around the turn... then mows them all down on a track that favoured the leaders. It’s the best last-to-first win I’ve ever seen in a big race.

He’s now a show horse, looking like he’s spending plenty of time in a feed bin :D

I also loved how decided to retire himself. That is normally up to the trainer/owners bit he took matters into his own hands. :lol:

I had Bobbing on top for the next at Randwick, but I’m now leaning toward Julian Rock.

See how they look in the yard.

Good thing I didn’t see this post earlier, no one would have wanted to follow me on the punt. What a stinker of a a day. I managed to land Rubisaki at the end of the day to make it not so bad. But even then I fixed it at $2.05 so cost myself plenty!
