Race 3 of the day at Albany is a Class 2 over the 1900m and CLASSIC ROGUE can bounce back after a last start effort that saw him finish 5th behind Pletto on March 20 at Ascot over the 1400m. In that race, the four-year-old settled last in the field of eight runners and produced some of the best late splits in the race before landing three lengths away. He went 0.9 lengths faster than standard benchmark that day, which are the second best last start figures that any runner in this race has produced, while he gets back to the Albany track and had success over the 1900m prior to his Ascot run. He might be able to settle a little closer this time around from barrier 4 and unless they crawl early on, he can run over the top of the at the business end.

AMELIE ARGOT shapes as a major player in Race 4 of the afternoon at Albany. The six-year-old from Esperance has been thereabouts in her recent runs and settled back at the track and trip on March 26 before weaving through the field to place 6th behind Dark Assault, beaten just over a length. She didn’t quite measure up in runs over longer trips at her two prior to that but did go very close at the track and trip four starts ago when runner-up to Long Knife Brother. What shapes as a key to her chances is the pace in this race and she should get more of a genuine tempo this time around. At her last start she went more than six lengths faster than standard over the last 600m of the race and with clearer air in the straight this time around, she can get the job done.

The big one is the Albany Cup and MAROCCHINO shapes as the one to beat. The Lou Luciani-trained galloper thrived when getting out to the 2200m last time, taking over at the 200m mark and edging clear with Unreliable, holding off that horse, while those two put a big gap on the rest. The four-year-old went 5.6 lengths faster than standard benchmark, which is nearly three lengths better than the last start figures of any runner in this race. Touch Of Silver is the only horse in this race that has produced better figures in the past two years. But Marocchino is mapped to get the advantage as he is likely to settle on speed in what might be a slowly run affair, while Willie Pike sticks on board and is one from one on the son of Maschino.
