An anticipated genuine pace should set the race up ideally for CHAUTAUQUA Horseform who resumes after a record breaking third straight TJ Smith Stakes success in the autumn. Ticks all the right boxes in terms of first up, course and distance records. Pitchforked into this race under Set Weights plus Penalties conditions. Will take holding out.

REDZEL Horseform made all first up in the Concorde Stakes on resuming a fortnight ago. Won't get that same soft lead he did on resuming however doesn't know how to run a bad race. Expect nothing but another forward showing from him.

ENGLISH Horseform has an excellent first up record having won three of her four prior outings on resuming. Almost denied Chautauqua his second and third TJ Smith successes. Can keep thing sporting again here.


Siding with Chautauqua for the win.

1. Chautauqua

2. Redzel

3. English


WHEN: Saturday, @ 3:55pm

WHERE: Randwick Racecourse
