2017 RA LEE STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Burning Front looks the leader with Hooked prominent.

BURNING FRONT is as tough as they come having won six of his last seven runs, four of them at this distance. Won at Listed level at this course and trip three starts back and sure to give his supporters a big sight again.

HOOKED found his best when landing the G3 Victoria Handicap last start. The mile could test him but he has won at the trip before and has been kept up to the mark with a big Cranbourne trial win since.

ROYAL RUMBLE steps up to stakes level but has been flying winning his last three runs in open grade. VICTORY DOWNS was runner up at Listed level last start and has won third up before.

Hughes Limousines R A Lee Stks 3U , 1600m
Race Synopsis: Burning Front is enjoying terrific form, this his seventh win from his last eight starts and 18 wins in total. As expected, he burst to the lead from barrier eight finding the fence passing the 1400m. Jockey Brad Rawiller sat quietly until the 500m then moved out slightly and was passed briefly on his inner by Hooked who had sat in his trail from the outset. These two drew clear at the top of the straight and had a mighty head-for-head, stride-for-stride tussle right to the wire with Burning Front doing slightly better near the post. Hooked was not at all disgraced in running second; they had the finish to themselves. Rhythm To Spare was fourth past the 600m, pulled wide and ran on for a distant third from Beluga Blue who battled away into fourth.
