RACE 4 PARKS TAVERN MAIDEN 3:20 PM (1108M)
We’ve already overlooked two Peters Investments debutantes earlier in the card, however, we weren’t going to make it three with Testa Rossa filly REGAL MOON appearing to have a bit of class on her side. Looked very sharp when scoring a soft win at the Belmont trials recently, hitting the line hard under a good hold from William Pike and this doesn’t appear to be an overly strong all aged maiden. With ‘The Wizard’ suspended the Cerise And White’s number two Glenn Smith has been booked to ride and will have to be switched on to find a reasonable position in running from the wide gate, although there appears to be plenty of pace so the early-and-middle tempo should at least be even, which will suit. REGAL MOON to kick off her career in style. THE ANAESTHETIST is a youngster we have been tracking closely and he hasn’t done a lot wrong in his two outings this prep. He’s race-fit and in-form so he stands out as the logical danger. STELLAR IGNITION hit the track with a boom on debut in November, however, he busted after getting caught up in an intense speed battle. Previous trial form was spot on and we’re going to back in the Miller stable to get this fellow back on track, while first-upper JUST JUDE is a get back/run on type who showed promise during his last campaign and was never out of first-gear in a recent Bunbury trial.
Suggested Bet: (12) REGAL MOON to win.
