The Tony McEvoy-trained Blow Torch lines up in Race 2, the Dominant Class Two Handicap (1550m) at Morphettville on Wednesday and looks incredibly hard to beat.

Having finished runner-up in two starts over 1300m and 1400m this preparation where he ran one length above benchmark (BM) and then 2.2 lengths below BM, his efforts suggest he is far superior to his opposition. 

All of Wednesday’s rivals have gone between nine and 23 lengths below BM at their previous start, putting them at least six lengths off Blow Torch if they ran up to last start.

However, Blow Torch has been taking ground off the winner late in both runs this time, and the step up to 1550m third-up will suit him better than most. 

He’s been on this track at his last two start on a Good 4 and Heavy 8, so the Soft 5 looks ideal on Wednesday.

Barend Vorster has the ride from barrier 2, and there should be no excuses. 

The Nicole Bruggemann-trained First Three Legs was an impressive winner last start and has plenty of upside at his second run for the stable, and although his last start BM figure of 9.2 lengths below BM reads poor, he did finish off strong and is the likely improver. 

Blow Torch and Gostraightandhard are the only two horses to have gone under 12 seconds in their final 200m, but Gostraightforward did it after going 28.9 length below BM to the 600m and was entitled to go quick in the final 200m.

Blow Torch ran his final 200m in 11.88 after going 1.9 lengths above BM to the 600m, and based on those figures, there isn’t a single horse that can match his sprint in this field. 

With fitness on his side, Blow Torch should be within striking distance as they straighten, and from there, I can’t see anything beating him home.
