RACE 2 JCW ELECTRICAL MAIDEN 1:12 PM (1705M)
A very nice maiden here with a few talented types destined for bigger things, but we have settled on the Grant Williams-trained HEART STARTER on top, who has been narrowly beaten at his two runs back from a spell. Appeared to have the race shot to pieces here on February 5, however, he did do a bit of work through the early and middle stages, leaving him vulnerable to Eyes Wide Open over the final 50 metres. If William Pike can find a bit of cover this time, expect to see the Domesday gelding hit the line strong. Former eastern stater HAKUNA MATATA is having his third run in the west for trainer Ross Price, after improving sharply second up over the longer 2000-metre journey to finish second last start. The drop back to 1705 metres may not look ideal, but the four-year-old should be rock hard fit and flying home late. MAYBE ONE MORE drops back from an open three-year-old handicap at Ascot last start when finishing sixth behind a nice type in Black Dynamite. Prior to that was narrowly beaten as a $1.70 favourite in similar company to this, while SASSE DE BLISHK will relish the step up in journey after just missing behind Rosewood Hill and Echoes in Time at Pinjarra last Sunday week.
Suggested Bet: (5) HEART STARTER to win.
