It’s hard to see them beating DRIFTSTAR (R6 No. 1) when he resumes in three-year-old company at Belmont tomorrow. The son of Sepoy had three runs as a juvenile winning the first one by panels as an oddson fave before pulling up lame in Listed company when again sent round at prohibitive odds. He was outclassed in the Karrakatta Plate but showed he has returned as good as ever with a five length demolition of his rivals in a recent trial. Has class edge on this line-up.
MORNING SONG (R2 No. 11) was narrowly beaten in a blanket finish on debut here two weeks ago and back to maiden grade should atone. She was only half
length from the winner Stella Anne on the line in the 0MW and good draw here William Pike will give her every hope. RACY AVA (R7 No. 11) worked home encouragingly first-up and out to the mile distance tomorrow can go one better. Second-up last prep she scored an easy win in tougher grade after coming off a similar first-up run, and wasn’t disgraced in the Oaks later in her prep. She is bound for much higher grade than tomorrow’s assignment and will be hard to hold out.
