Race 3 at Espreance is a Maiden over the 1400m and CIRCLE THE SUN can land the prize at his third career start. The Adam Durrant-trained galloper has had two career runs and has placed on both occasions. He stepped out on debut at Geraldton on January 24 over the 1600m and closed off solidly before just missing out behind Black Money. At his most recent run he was well supported in the betting and loomed as the winner with 200m to go before just being run down late. He drops back to the 1400m and can push forward from the wide gate with Kyra Yuill on board. The tempo shouldn’t be too exerting and with even luck in running this looks within his grasp.
The highlight of the day is the Esperance Cup and TOUCH OF SILVER should be hard to beat. The veteran galloper should appreciate the drop in class after missing out in the recent Detonator Stakes (1800m) at Ascot on February 20. On that occasion, he settled last in the field of 10 and he was run off his feet a little bit as they went hard up in front but he did manage to go nearly nine lengths faster than standard benchmark, which is four lengths better than what any of the rivals in this race have produced in the past two years. He gets out to the 2000m for the first time this preparation and is always competitive when stretching out to the distance and beyond. He should be within striking distance this time around and has drawn perfectly in barrier 3.
