Miyake could hardly have been more impressive when breaking his maiden at Kembla Grange last time out and he can continue his rise through the grades at Canterbury today. The Deep Impact colt didn’t show a lot during his short debut prep, but he worked home well to finish fifth on the Kensington course at his only other start this time in. He’ll take further improvement into this race and looks a colt capable of progression to black type races.
Prism is four weeks between races and will enjoy a nice drop in class at Sandown this week. The All Too Hard mare has returned several quality performances this time in and won over a mile at Moe three back; producing competitive efforts in two far tougher city races most recently. A repeat of her run for third at Caulfield last time out would see her far too good for this field, and I think that she is up to it. The $4.80 on offer at publish looks overs.
Think We’re Due has opened at odds of $6.50 to win this BM64 race and looks over the odds, in my opinion. The Andrew Noblett-trained mare has returned plenty of pleasing effort and results throughout her racing career and is a horse that typically enjoys sharp improvement with a run under her belt. She hit the line well to finish fourth at this grade when resuming at Caulfield and is ready to win today.
He hasn’t been seen at the races since late September, but Jumbo Ozaki is a potential star and can make a winning return in the eighth at Sandown this evening. The four-year-old son of Unencumbered is quite clearly still learning his craft, but he is yet to miss a place in six career starts and his fresh form is obviously good. This will be his first start for Danny O’Brien, and he’s drawn ideally, with the benefit of Craig Williams in the saddle. The quality of this race is excellent for a Wednesday, but I still think that Jumbo Ozaki is the one to beat.
