Jules unpacks all the action from a thrilling Cox Plate Day…

MOONEE VALLEY (SAT OCTOBER 28)
RAIL: TRUE POSITION ENTIRE CIRCUIT
TRACK CONDITION: GOOD (4), UPGRADED TO A GOOD (3) AFTER RACE 6
INTEL: AS PREDICTED IN THE PREVIEW, HORSES ON SPEED WAS AN ADVANTAGE. RAILS IN RUN A BIG PLUS THROUGHOUT THE DAY

 

  • RAILS IN RUN A BIG ADVANTAGE, CAREFUL WITH THE FORMLINES WHEN LOOKING AHEAD
  • RACE 2 HAS GONE GREAT, FOLLOW WITH CONFIDENCE
  • I AM TRUSTING RACE 4, NO MARGINS BUT THAT DUE TO SOFT TEMPO, I LIKE THE LAST SECTIONS.
  • SKYBIRD, SKYWOW
  • ABSOLUTELY LOVE 7 DAY BACK UP OFF MODERATE/SLOW TEMPO (APULIA)
  • VERSATILITY OF IMPERATRIZ
  • SO CRUCIAL TO GET SPEED MAP RIGHT, POSITION IN RUN WAS THE KEY FACTOR IN THE COX PLATE (NEED THE ABILITY ETC OF COURSE, THAT IS A GIVEN)

 

  • WORRIED ABOUT UNFLINCHING GOING FORWARD
  • EN FRANCAIS AROUND MOONEE VALLEY
