2019 AJAX STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Very competitive Ajax Stakes with a number of horses hitting this on the up. Dreamforce is your expected leader with not a lot of obvious pressure on paper.

FIFTY STARS (3) displayed sharp improvement up to the mile last start when too strong winning the Blamey. Only won narrowly, but took a good step forward and should have no concerns with the wet track. Drawn well and shapes as one of the hardest to beat.

WIDGEE TURF (4) went down as the odds-on favourite last start, but still no knock on his effort and he should be nearing his peak racing third up. Should relish the extra trip and looms as a major threat. LAND OF PLENTY (1) gets the blinkers on for the first time and has to be respected at the top of the weights.

Race Synopsis: Fifty Stars followed his win in the Blamey Stakes (Gr 2, 1600m) at Flemington on March 2 when having his second start for new trainers Lindsay Park with another good win here. He had a nice trip in fourth place but was under pressure when the tempo increased from the 600m before rallying late, he then came with a strong finish to score well. Mask Of Time went to the front from his inside barrier (1). He then set a moderate pace, got a break on straightening and was only overhauled in the latter stages for second after running a bold race. Dyslexic raced outside the leader (Mask Of Time) and kept fighting very gamely for a close-up third, while Kaonic ran on from ninth at the home turn for (2.5 lengths) fourth.
