Race 6 – Tattersalls Club Cup – This Listed Group feature race will see a total of $150,000 in prize money up for grabs. Broadside will start this race as the favourite after two very good performances since resuming from a 3 month spell. He won first up at Rosehill and ran a tidy second in his second up last start run at Randwick. He now has 12 features from his 17 starts making him quite a formidable opponent for the other competitors here. Vassal comes into this race having firmed in betting ever so slightly. He has won two of his last three races and is a genuine stayer in top condition. Expect him to perform strongly here. Stradazzle comes into this race in some good form, having won both of his last two races and while he is more comfortable over this distance, he will find the front runners a bit too classy. Paragon could well claim a feature place after showing great improvement in his last start third up win.
Betting: Broadside $2.30; Vassal $4.40; Destiny’s Kiss $4.80; Prince Cheri $6.00; Paragon $11.00; Last Wish $17.00; Stradazzle $61.00; Praise Songs $81.00.
