Ex New Zealander now under the care of Trent Bussutin & Natalie Young. After a luckless debut he was impressive winning his last two starts in New Zealand and has been given two solid jump outs to get ready for this first up assignment. He has been gelded since his last run and gets in well with Josh Richards 3kg claim here. Also gets blinkers on for the first time which is a positive sign of intent first up.
Vucetich is a four year old gelding with two wins and a placing from his nine starts. He was good first up when running out of room late over 1300m at Randwick. Strips fitter here second up and is suited stepping out to the 1400m with some sting out of the track. Should get the right run for Damian Oliver from barrier seven. Solid each way chance.
Redwood Shadow is currently rated a $3.80 chance in race three on the card. He has just the one win from eleven starts and will need some luck getting back in the field from the inside gate. Wouldn’t shock but prefer others here.
