Kementari, Pierata, Happy Clapper, Invincible Star, plus possibly a baby which can sit on pace and absorb pressure with the light weight.

Nature Strip would add great interest to the race with his style. Guaranteed solid pace.

Interested in the deals struck between the slot holders and the horse owners. Deals will obviously vary considerably but does anyone have any insight into any agreements?

Not much being divulged, but from various interviews heard to date starting point for a few:

- 50/50 prizemoney
- Either pay a portion of the yearly slot fee going in, or a % of prizemoney before distribution after the result

Mates were involved in an unsuccessful negotiation last year where the slot holder wanted 100% of slot costs covered prior.

I see Invincible Star just snuck home in a trail today, surely a savvy slot holder will pounce.

They drive for show but putt for dough. No doubt they are looking to impress slot holders. She's looking good but Waterbott might burn her out before she gets to show her 4yo race skills. LOL

Certainly do, two racing preps thus far would say has the most scope for natural improvement along with muscle memory, last race start only beaten by MN .Certainly a talent. I'm a huge Redzel fan, bit really like this Horse also

Kementari might be gone but Le Romain must be on the radar.

I would think so mice, but as Kris said he seems to be underrated.

Any sprinter who can carry 61 kilos and run 1.08.62 is an Everest contender!

He handles any conditions, he can sit box seat or come from off the speed, he loves Randwick and he is not far off trapeze Artist off the TJSmith run.
Remember, it might take intelligence to be smart , but it takes experience to be wise

Interesting the handling of Nature Strip.

All noise from the slot holders seems to be that they want to see him at 1200m, but his two preps will both be over 1000m.

A risky strategy, or have they given up? Or do they have the same 1200m doubts?

Would beat plenty home at his best imo, including English

If Trapeze Artist runs up to his TJ Smith run Le Romain will finish about the same distance from him.Tongue

The thing that needs to be remembered T is that TA will have to carry the 58.5 kgs, so he will be meeting Le Romaine 2 kilos worse and if you look at Trapeze Artist last season, he was well placed because he never once had to carry a penalty. I might be wrong, but my records show he has never carried over 56.5 kilos.

And as Kris Lees said, it took LR a couple of runs to get his fitness up last prep.

This race will be a different prospect, but no doubt TA deserves to be the fav!
