THE EARLY CROW

The Sportsman Weekend - - Racing.com Park Preview -

THE AN­CHOR

None other than Jun­gle Edge (Race 5). Has found con­di­tions made to or­der with the like­li­hood of a soft track. Gets back out to 1200m, which will also help and still not badly treated at the weights after the claim. Sim­ply looks too good.

THE LAY

Book­ies may well be pre­pared to take a few risks with Burn­ing Front (Race 8). Has to carry the full 60kg here and con­tend with a wide bar­rier in 15.

He has han­dled this track be­fore and not far away be­hind Jun­gle Edge at Sandown last start but is he go­ing as well as pre­vi­ous cam­paigns?

AT THE TRI­ALS

There was a lot to like about the trial ef­fort of Bel Sonic (Race 1). Liked way he at­tacked the line un­der his own steam and seemed to have a lot in re­serve when third at Cran­bourne

on Nov 27. Promis­ing type who will be hard to hold out.

SECTIONAL STAR

In­vin­ci­ble Al (Race 4) caught the eye with his barn­storm­ing fin­ish to win over 955m at the Val­ley last start. Was the only only horse to break 34s for his last last 600m on the race and shot home his last 200m in a slash­ing 11.28s. That was only his

first run from a spell and will be even bet­ter now.

THE STATS SPEAK

Silvera (Race 6) looks very well placed to­mor­row and at­trac­tively weighted on the limit after some strong ef­forts in town. Has won two and placed third once from four starts at the trip and has won three of four on soft tracks. Go close.
