Hope’s Heist will take winning form into Race 3 at Albion Park tonight and looks well placed to make it two in a row.
The classy son of Magic Sprite has missed placing once in his last seven starts, winning on four occasions, including one in particularly slick time at this track and distance last time out.
He can go straight to the lead from Box 1 and will be in it for a long way.
This is a strong edition of the Listed Gold Cup, but I am big fan of Here’s Tears, and I think he’ll take plenty of beating again.
Here’s Tears simply doesn’t know how to run a bad race, and he has returned to the track in typically stunning form this time, winning the Group 3 Christmas Cheer at Wentworth Park in December, and he has overcome some of the country’s best chasers.
He can use his box speed to go forward, set a good tempo and he’ll be tough to catch.
Tommy Shelby is in career-best form and can record another Group 1 victory in tonight’s Gold Bullion Final.
A son of the legendary Fernando Bale, Tommy Shelby has returned some truly stunning performances throughout his campaign; winning the Group 1 Hobart Thousand most notably, and he completed an ideal lead-in to this race with an easy win in his heat last week.
He is rock-hard fit and needs only even luck from Box 6 to be in the finish again.
Key West will take winning form into the penultimate race at Albion Park tonight and looks capable of making it two in a row.
The son of Fabregas has continued to improve with racing recently, and was rewarded for his building condition with a smart win down the straight at Capalaba last time out.
He can slot in behind the early pace from Box 1 and finish over the top of his rivals.
