I just love a horse coming back in grade and this CUBA… Wow. He drops many lengths in class for this following a really decent run in black-type company last start, on a day where the run was a record. A lot fitter now with that effort under his belt. And let’s face it, he was only four lengths from the winner. There have been a lot of astute bets wagered on him overnight too.
They’ve taken their time with this 4YO, RED CHOUX’S, because he looks like he has talent. Been to the races twice for two placings. Last start at the ‘Bool, got a mile back on a Heavy 10 and was carrying extra weight with all the mud at the end but rattled home for 2nd in this grade. They ran 1:18 for 1200m – say no more. Wet again here but does get home hard.
Tip: RED CHOUX’S
You’d have to say this CANUNGRA KID is causing some to lose faith in him – 11 starts and no wins to date. But he’s had a bit of bad luck on occasions and to be fair, does boast a record of four placings this grade. Beaten less than a length here over 1350m last start in this class. Extra trip in his favour and has finally drawn a good gate.
