2018 AJAX STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Arbeitsam dictates. COMIN' THROUGH placed on resuming in the Apollo Stakes. Settled back and was closing well into third behind his stablemate Endless Drama. Will be fitter for that and is yet to run out of the money in three prior second up outings. Also worth noting he was gelded in his latest spell. Perhaps now ready to fulfil his potential as a racehorse.

INTERLOCUTER was making good late ground first up in the Liverpool City Cup. Much better suited out to this distance. Second up and track stats both read well.

PRIZED ICON ran second to Winx last start (albeit beaten seven lengths). Consider along with Australia's favourite Bridesmaid TOM MELBOURNE first run back from a spell.

Race Synopsis: A Chris Waller-trained pair finished one-two in this Group Two race with Comin' Through being successful. Having his second run this preparation, he settled nicely in fifth place, went deep rounding the home turn, hit the front at the 100m and then fought back well to score by a head. His stablemate, perennial placegetter Tom Melbourne raced in seventh place, one off the rails, went deepest of all at the home turn, challenged at the 100m and kept battling on for second, his sixth second from his last nine starts. Radipole had a good trip from his inside barrier (1) in third place on the rails, he challenged at the 200m and kept fighting well for a close up third, going nicely at his second run this preparation.
