Fighting Harada has made a flying start to his racing career and should be winning at Sandown this afternoon. The Fighting Sun colt was decent at black type level four runs back, before securing consecutive wins in sprint races similar to this one. He was last seen finishing second over 1200m here a fortnight ago and while you can only take even money today, he looks a pretty safe bet.
Deity has not been seen at the races since February, but she is a horse with great ability and can return a winner at Warwick Farm this afternoon. The daughter of Exceed And Excel is yet to miss a place through her three career starts and overcame a poor jump to finish a close second over 1000m at Kembla Grange on debut, before responding with a dominant win over the same trip at Wyong. She was last seen finishing fourth amongst decent company here at the Farm and she has trialled extremely well in the lead-up to today’s assignment.
Chain Of Fools took plenty of improvement into her second-up run a fortnight ago and should be nearing peak fitness for today’s third-up assignment. The More Than Ready mare was hampered at the jump and clearly required the run when she finished at the tail of the field over 1300m first-up, but she stripped fitter and hit the line well despite being caught wide in transit at Canterbury last time out. She’s drawn ideally, weighted well and will enjoy an increase in trip today.
Captain Harry is stepping back in class into Race 6 at Sandown down and will be extremely difficult to beat. The Commands entire has been a strong and consistent performer this time and registered consecutive wins at sprint trips early in his campaign, but has continued to impress upon stepping out in trip and up in class recently; running second over 1550m at Morphettville before flying home from the tail of the field to finish fourth in a mile race at Caulfield last time out. A repeat of that performance would put him right in this finish today.
