Nangar Jet will appreciate a step back in class into the second at Richmond tonight and looks tough to beat. The son of Barcia Bale has been finishing off his races well and savaged the line to finish a half-length third behind Mighty Senor at this track and distance last time out. He’s rock-hard fit and can stay away from early trouble from his wide box.
Veloce Nero has recorded some slick times and results recently and can fight out the finish of the Richmond Oaks tonight, at a nice price ($14 at publish). A daughter of the legendary Fernando Bale, Veloce Nero won a Ladbrokes Monthly Medal race over 720m last month and has since produced three credible efforts, including a close-up third in the heat for this race last week. If she steps, she’ll can be a serious threat.
Lagoon Rhett has form around some terrific dogs this time and is good enough to win the Richmond Derby. The son of Cosmic Rumble strolled home to score at Sandown three starts back before a tough run for third at The Meadows. He stamped his intentions with an impressive heat win last week, however and looks ready to pull off the win of his career tonight.
