Second-up today, the Todd Howlett-trained MISS KOJIKI will be out to make up for her unlucky first-up effort. Resuming from a lengthy 23-week break, the Real Impact filly drew the fence in a Maiden Plate, here over 1100m. It was one of those cases where drawing the inside probably cost her victory that day. Box-seating to the turn, Mikayla Weir sat patiently, just waiting for the gap to appear so she could drive the filly through for what was looking like a possible victory. However, the gap never came, and she was left the job of avoiding heels in the run home, a tragedy beaten. Similar company today, she draws gate six and will be better suited there as she can cross, but be off the fence and out of trouble. She will be fitter for that first-up run and with an ounce more luck in running, she should prove hard to hold out here.


Coming off a huge win, the Allan Denham-trained THAILAND is in the right frame of mind to give this a real shake. Two starts back, the Adelaide colt made his debut here in a 1300m Maiden, finishing fourth that day. He then made the trip to Muswellbrook and fitter from that debut run, he gave them a galloping lesson over the 1280m trip. He settled two pairs back (on the fence). On straightening he was crowded for room and collided with another as they went for the same gap. Greg Ryan got him rebalanced and then showing a blistering turn of foot, he strolled away for an effortless victory, putting more than four lengths on the field. Ryan sticks with him here and if the galloper brings that form here today, he will take a ton of beating.


Local trainer, Paul Messara slips the blinkers on LADY PATRICIA today which could make all the difference. The Snitzel mare is another who paid a price for an inside draw when last start, things didn’t go to plan. On barrier rise, she was back among the tailenders and had to use up some fuel to improve her position. She finally settled mid-field with the two front-runners setting a solid pace. On straightening, Christian Reith pulled her to the middle of the track looking for running room and finished well to take home third prize. Had she stayed inside and waited for the cut-away (300m mark), she may have finished closer. Drawn out today, the four-year-old may not get that option and will have to look for room out wide. Reith sticks with the mare and after three race starts, she should be as fit as can be and looks the one to beat.
