Lorente has only made one appearance at the races so far, but he was unlucky not to win on debut and can breaking through at Kilmore today.
The four-year-old son of Fiorente mustered a good turn of foot to finish a nose second behind Bossdom at Kyneton, and there’s no doubt that he’ll enjoy good improvement for that effort.
He’s drawn well and can fight out the finish.
This is a drop in class for Lobster Noodles and she is up to winning.
The Canford Cliffs mare recorded a smart win in BM58 company at Wodonga two back and was last seen finishing sixth, three lengths behind Tralee Rose at Flemington on Oaks Day.
She was scratched from a race Mornington on Wednesday to run here and she looks beautifully placed.
It took him a few to get going, but Pancho has raced quite well in some decent city races recently, and the Kilmore Cup looks a great race for him.
Pancho stamped himself as a horse to watch last spring when he beat home the likes of Russian Camelot in a Listed race, and while he hasn’t really gone on with it, his recent runs for second behind Purple Sector the Spring Mile and fourth in BM90 at Flemington would be good enough to see him into the finish of this race.
The mile is perfect and at around the $7 mark, we can have an each-way play.
Hughes The Boss has improved for two starts this time and is ready to win at Kilmore this afternoon.
The four-year-old son of Street Boss ran home well to finish second, a length and a half behind Emerald Crown when resuming, and he was last seen finishing half a length second behind Fiftyonestates at Ballarat.
Fitter third-up, from the good draw and dropping in weights, he’ll take beating.
