Grid will take plenty of improvement into his second Australian start today, and I think that he will take a power of beating.
The Siyouni entire was excellent in Ireland at the beginning of his career, winning over a mile at Cork most notably, and finding form around some talented gallopers.
I didn’t expect a lot of him when he stepped out on debut for Robert Hickmott a fortnight ago, but he raced home well to fill the minors, and I am confident he’ll take big improvement for that effort.
Main Stage looks to have found some good form this time, and I’m happy to stick with him at the midweeks.
The Reliable Man gelding has returned many good efforts throughout his career and was particularly noteworthy during his three-year-old season.
While those day probably are behind him, he wound back the clock with a dominant performance and win here last month, and I can’t find a reason why he won’t be able to replicate that effort.
I am confident that this is the perfect opportunity for Guizot to return to winning form.
All-round, he has been a great horse for the Aaron Purcell stable throughout his career, and Guizot has raced typically consistently this time, without winning.
He has options from the rails draw today, he’s rock-hard fit and he gets some relief in the weights under Laura Lafferty.
Arranmore can win the last at Randwick-Kensington today.
The Astern filly hasn’t finished worse than second in four career starts to date, winning on the main track here most notably.
She returned from a break with a nice effort to finish second in BM72 at Canterbury and can go one better in this contest.
