Godolphin’s Zakat has won three of his sixteen career starts. He returns to the races on Saturday on the back of two really nice trials, he found the line strongly in both under little riding. He is drawn to get a lovely run in midfield from barrier eight and with the services of leading Melbourne rider Jamie Kah will be hard to beat.
This exciting daughter of Shamus Award resumes in the Group 1 Lightning Stakes. She had a terrific spring campaign, winning two races and finishing runner up at her other two starts. With a light weight here she looks to map in an ideal spot in behind the speed and is more suited than some of these over the 1000m. She has only had seven starts so her best is likely still to come.
Aysar has come up as the early favourite in the CS Hayes Stakes on Saturday. The Caulfield Guineas place getter ran second first up in the Manfred Stakes at Caulfield. He will derive good benefit from that hit out however I would of liked to see him a little stronger through the line than he was. He is still without his blinkers on Saturday and I don’t see any value in the early price in a strong edition of the CS Hayes.
