Prospero has stripped fitter for three starts back this time and strikes another winnable race at Coffs Harbour this afternoon.
The Pierro gelding was an impressive winner at Port Macquarie when fresh, but hasn’t had much luck in two starts at Newcastle in the wake.
This a drop in class for him, and he looks to be at peak fitness for this contest.
With leading contender So Super scratched after instead taking his place at Warwick yesterday, I think that this now shapes as Lucky Enuff’s race to lose.
Lucky Enuff has had two starts back from a spell this time, and while he clearly needed his first at the Sunshine Coast to tune up, he was far better into second at Grafton last time out.
Fitter third-up and on exposed form, he’s the one to beat.
Judder will take plenty of improvement into the sixth at Coffs Harbour today and looks a touch of overs at her current price ($6.50 at publish).
The Medaglia D’oro filly returned some lovely efforts last time in, winning in BM58 company most notably, and she flew in to only just miss at Beaudesert when resuming.
She’s drawn a peach today, gets some relief in the weights and will prove tough to beat.
The scratching of Queenslander Sacred Zim has blown this race wide open and brought a horse like Tequila Cabos right into contention.
Tequila Cabos has made three trips to the races since debuting, winning twice, including an eye-catching effort in BM58 company at Taree last time out.
Lee Magorian should be able to find a nice position from barrier 3 and the horse can fight out the finish.
