Necessitas is yet to break her maiden, but she’ll appreciate a step back from city company into the third at Seymour this afternoon and probably won’t be offered a better opportunity to win. The daughter of Zacinto resumed for a close-up third at Cranbourne before hitting the line well to finish fifth amongst credible company at The Valley last time out. She can go forward from an inside draw today and with improvement, will be tough to beat.
Former Waterhouse galloper Sunday Session will have his second start for Toby Edmonds on the Sunshine Coast today and is well placed to record his first race win. The More Than Ready gelding trialled well in the lead-up to his debut in Queensland and worked home fairly to finish third at the Gold Coast. An increase in trip this afternoon should suit and he has the notable advantage of Jeff Lloyd in the saddle.
Cape Richards has not been seen at the races since August, but he’s also yet to taste anything but success and looks beautifully placed to continue his unbeaten run at Seymour this afternoon. The Hinchinbrook gelding was an easy winner at Murtoa and Sale during his debut preparation and has trialled well in the lead-up to today’s race.
Blue Hope has steadily built to the task this time and looks ready to peak third-up at Seymour this afternoon. The Statue Of Liberty colt worked home well to finish midfield at Mornington first-up before savaging the line to finish a half-length third over 1200m last time out. The small step up in trip today looks ideal and with even luck in running, he’ll be extremely difficult to hold out.
