Ashim (Rosehill Race 8 No. 1):
This four-year-old Stormy Atlantic gelding trained by Matthew Smith at Warwick Farm is the early favourite in this Midway BM 72 handicap over 1500m. At his first Australian start after a break of 32 weeks he kept chasing for 3.56 lengths 4th over 1300m at Rosehill Gardens on 19 June, then he was no match for the winner but defeated the rest comfortably when 3.27 lengths 2nd over 1300m at Randwick on 10 July. He goes up a half kilo and I’m prepared to risk him in this big field.
