Key Race

Race 7 – Porter Plant Cup Benchmark 78 Handicap – This feature race over a mile will be worth $50,000 in prize money. Our Peaky Blinders will be the short priced favourite here after showing great improvement in his last two starts, culminating in a last start win after having taken a 2 month freshener. Looks to be one of the strongest chances here. Call Me Handsome has featured in all of his 8 starts to date, scoring 3 wins, 2 of which have come in his last three runs. Loves rising to a challenge and has himself a big challenge here. Expect a bold run. Sohool has had a measured campaign of late, which helped him finish a much improved second in his last run. His legs are still reasonably fresh, making him a genuine threat here.


Betting: Our Peaky Blinders $2.90; Call Me Handsome $3.10; Sohool $4.40; Kapaulenko $10.00; Elle O’love $12.00; Elite Tiger $14.00; It’s A Silvertrail $26.00; Duke Of Boneo $34.00; The Dominator $34.00; Cougar Express $71.00; Golden Oldies $81.00; Gold Medals $91.00; Mr Lebrock $91.00
