1   APACHE CAT   2   
2   WEEKEND HUSSLER   3   
3   ORANGE COUNTY (NZ)   4   
4   TESBURY JACK   5   
5   MIND YOUR HEAD   1   
6   VORMISTA    7   
7   TIME THIEF   6   

Interesting draw with Lucky Secret not running.  Think Apache Cat is the key to the race tactics.

Apache Cat has drawn barrier 2.  He can't win if crowded for room on the rails - needs time to wind up.  So must lead or drop right out.

Fair to assume Mind Your Head won't ping the gates to lead, so surely Oliver will kick up on The Cat to make sure nothing crosses him and locks him away - Tesbury Jack the main danger here?  Only other option is dropping out, but he can't expect to give the Hussler 2+ lengths at the school and run him down.

So Apache might end up leading with one of Tesbury Jack or the Hussler on his outside (we can be sure that the Hussler won't be getting locked away on the leader's back!). 

Then it's up to the Cat to run straight with something pressuring him all the way.  Good luck with that.

Really should be set up nicely for Weekend Hussler.

Just my thoughts.

This will be the first time I have backed him, despite the fact he will be at prohibitive I just can't see how he will get beaten ... so for the first time GO THE HUSSLEr!!!

Doubt I will back him but this looks money in the bank for the Hussler. I think Brad will have him right up on the speed and from there he will just be too good.

If anyone's into boilovers...have a go at Orange County's track and distance record...stranger things have been happening
lately...Time Thief right in this also. Plenty of pace IMHO and the quiet ride might win...

How many times do I have to say it.
CHAMPIONS have to deliver for at least 3, probably 4, seasons

Probably didnt make much difference in the end but geez Rawiller crapped himself on the Hussler, could have eased back a half length and just tracked the Cat instead sits 3 and 4 wide facing the breeze the whole way.

Big run Vormista, would like to see a replay but looked like it ran up the backside of the Hussler on the turn and lost all momentum before getting going again to run 2nd.

Get IQ and you can replay it instantly, or record, slow it down, reverse it
