WAR­RNAM­BOOL (THU)

The Sportsman Special Issue - - News - — Greg Splet­ter

SELF SENSE (R1 No. 5) has proven his ver­sa­til­ity in re­cent weeks win­ning both on the flat and over the jumps and will give pun­ters a great start to Cup day at War­rnam­bool. He ac­counted for a very strong stayer in Ki­wia last start at Caulfield and that bloke looks a big show in the Cup later on the pro­gram. Prior to that he made a suc­cess­ful de­but over the hur­dles at Pak­en­ham beat­ing a small field by 10 lengths. He can jump, and will have too much class in run­ning for his ri­vals here.

ARKHAM KNIGHT (R8 No. 13) fin­ished close-up be­hind Manuel and sub­se­quent win­ner Wag­ing War at his most re­cent start and against a mod­er­ate open-grade line-up to­mor­row gets his chance to break through. His ef­fort two runs back in Listed com­pany was at least as good be­hind Heart Of A Lion, and he should have just about won at Mor­phettville when held up in the straight. He loves it wet and will go close.
