He will come with a Bernborough like finish & win the Bobbie Lewis next Saturday! Then he will be contesting favouritism for the Rupert Clarke & win that convincingly, before starting a warm favourite in the Toorak Handicap and win that too! He will then become the first horse since Cole Diesel to back up & win the Caulfield Cup the following week and surpass that horses deeds by again backing up and fighting it out with Winx head and head to the post in the Cox Plate. Finally he will line up in the big one on the First Tuesday in November but I'm not sure how he will go in that! Regardless, he is about to step out of the shadows, emulate the deeds of his sire & be recognized as a great racehorse.

I am not sure if this is Smile sarcasm or not but I think the early part of the campaign is not far off the mark.

That was one sprint race too many.

Probably ruined the rest of his spring with that race.

Craig Williams could not have studied his racing style or must surely have ridden against instructions? Over these shorter distances he has to be allowed to settle & come with a strong finish. He was ridden much too close. Might be psychologically damaged for the remainder of this prep now - they will have to get Zahra back on but no guarantees now he can reproduce those two slashing first up runs. Anyone think he can bounce back from this if ridden correctly?

Would not say guaranteed but he should scrape in. Last years winner was a BM95 horse as is So Si Bon.

Have to agree with the posters questioning the Trainers selection of races. The horse obviously has a lot of talent but blind freddy can see that for sprint races he needs to be kept fresh! That said, Craig Williams ride on Saturday didn't help either...

It will depend on the entries and where he sits in the order of weight.

BM 95 should see him scrape in.

I have no major issue with his previous preps, they were learning about him.

What they should have learned they are clearly not putting into practice.
