Jojo Was A Man has improved for two starts back this time and is ready to win at Kembla Grange this afternoon.
The Al Maher finished seventh, but was less than two lengths from the winner in a midweek race at Randwick-Kensington when fresh, and he kept all of his best work for late when fourth in another midweeker last time.
Fitter third-up and dropping back to provincial grade, this looks his opportunity to strike.
Jeanne D’arc will take winning form into the fourth at Kembla Grange this afternoon and looks well placed to make it two in a row.
The Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou-trained mare needed the run when she finished down the order here when fresh, but she charged in to score a lovely win at Newcastle last time.
She will only improve for that effort and with even luck, I can’t find a reason why she won’t be in the finish again.
I am happy to give the consistent Head Legislator one last chance at Kembla Grange this afternoon.
Head Legislator ended his last prep with consecutive second placings, and he has picked up where he left off, incredibly finishing second at each of his first three starts back.
He looks to be at peak fitness for this contest and won’t have any excuses from Barrier 4.
This is one of the more open races on the card, and a runner like Agrum has claims on winning at a nice price ($11 at publish).
Agrum has missed placing only once in five previous trips to the races, winning on debut at Gosdford in June.
He takes his place in this race off the back of a credible third placing in Class 1 company at Wyong, and we can have an each-way play at the price.
