Snitzonfire faces a rise in class at Rosehill this afternoon, but he also puts an unbeaten record on the line, and I am confident that he will continue his journey through the grades.
The Snitzel gelding stamped himself as a runner to follow with a smart win on debut at Nowra and he simply hasn’t looked back, scoring here at Rosehill and at Randwick-Kensington respectively.
He has been freshened and sent back to the trials since his last race, and this does looks the next logical step for him.
This race was abandoned on the Gold Coast last week, but almost every galloper has re-accepted, and I am still confident in the chances of Niccanova.
He is unlucky not to have recorded a Group 1 victory during his career, and Niccanova has been one of Queensland’s better gallopers for a few seasons now.
He takes his place in this field second-up and following a competitive fresh effort for fourth in the Keith Noud Quality, and his record at this point of his preparation is excellent.
This is another race pulled over from last weekend’s abandoned meeting and I’m also sticking with Kisukano at a price ($15 at publish).
She was the only horse to deliver Rothfire a defeat during his two-year-old season, and while Kisukano obviously hasn’t scaled the peaks of that rival, she has etched out a lovely record of her own.
She strips fitter for a fair first-up performance for third behind the likes of Kylease at Eagle Farm, and she has missed placing only once at this point of her preparation previously.
Kissinger will relish a drop in class into the last on Pakenham Cup Day, and he is ready to strike fourth-up.
The Tavistock gelding hasn’t saluted in three starts back this time, but he was only denied by a head in the Ballan Cup at Geelong two starts back, and his late work at Ballarat last time was eye-catching.
He is drawn ideally, gets some relief in the weights and can return to winning form.
