VIDEO REPLAY STARS
Race 7 Number 5 WEBSTER
Was involved in an early speed battle last time out and he failed to find cover throughout after jumping from an outer alley.
To his credit, he still fought bravely in the straight before running out of condition inside the final 150m to weaken into sixth, beaten 2.2 lengths behind SKYWALK. Boasting an impressive record of two wins and three placings from seven attempts at this track holds him in good stead to bounce back this week.
Race 8 Number 2 JULIUS CAESAR
Had no luck last start when he settled off the speed as usual before being badly held up from the 400m to the 100m.
Once seeing daylight in the concluding stages, he rattled home strongly into sixth at this track and distance. With better luck in running, he can prove a big winning chance under the right race shape.
SECTIONAL TIME STARS
Race 2 Number 7 ADIPSON
Put the writing on the wall on debut 35 days ago when he was taken back from a wide barrier before reeling off the best final 400m (23.07 sec) to check into second over 1200m. He will only have improved from that run and looks ready to score with the rise in distance second-up.
Race 3 Number 6 BEBOP
His last start seventh place finish was better than it looks as a farcical tempo severely hindered the winning chance of every backmakrer in that race, yet he still produced the second best final split in 22.91 seconds. He is suited by the switch back to the Polytrack where his only career win has occurred.
