Vamos Stakes Summary

Thought the 1st up run of EMBELLER was super, where she hit the line well, after enduring a tough run. She should get a softer trip here, with the potential to settle closer and I thought getting out in trip to the 1400m 2nd up would suit. Outside of her I thought it was a fairly even contest.
