This is an excellent race, but I am confident that Logan Street Lion can continue his winning run of form.
The Tavistock gelding finished second, beaten less than a length here at Sandown when resuming, and he hasn’t taken a backwards step, winning each of his last two in impressive fashion.
He steps out today following a freshen-up, and I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish.
Dancelittlesister is ready to strike at Sandown this afternoon.
She kept her best work for late when second, beaten a length at The Valley when resuming, and she only just missed behind Tycoon Humma here last time out.
Fitter third-up and with a fitness edge over her key rivals, she’ll take a power of beating.
Dragonstone failed to perform in Listed company when resuming this time, but I am confident that this drop in class will see him returning to winning form.
The three-year-old son of Mikki Isle was a strong and consistent performer during his debut season, recording three wins and as many minors from six starts.
He was beaten by some good ones, including Mazu in the Listed Fireball Stakes earlier this month, and the form of that of race has since been franked.
With some relief in the weights and from the good draw, I think that this is the perfect second-up target for him.
This shapes as one of the more open races on today’s Warwick Farm program, and a horse like Derbari rates as a key winning chance at a lovely price.
Derbari doesn’t win out of turn, but he also rarely runs a bad race, and he found form around some talented gallopers last time in.
I thought that his first run back this time was sound, while the booking of Slipper winner Brenton Avdulla certainly doesn’t hinder his chances.
