Early mail and Blackbook Update for racing on December 23


RACE 6 (7) BRATISLAVA: Made an excellent return to racing when he made light of 61.5kg to record a convincing two lengths win over 1250m at Canterbury three weeks ago. The form out of that race has been strong, he can only be fitter for that outing and a 5.5 kg drop in weight is more than enough to counter the rise to this stronger class. Gives every indication he is set to build on an already impressive record that includes a win at this course.

RACE 7 (8) MORTON'S FORK: Sandown Guineas winner as a 3YO proved he’s a class act at his best and being gelded after his last campaign may be a game changer as he showed first-up after six months at Rosehill on November 25 when he ran through the line strongly late for fourth behind Invinzabeel over 1400m. This race fits well second up with a handy 5kg drop to the limit weight.

RACE 9 (6) NOIRE: Has been flying this prep with impressive wins at Canterbury and Rosehill when she has overwhelmed her opposition. Easily coped with the jump from 1100m to 1400m second up and while she rises 2kg off her last win she can keep building on that form against a similar field.
