Craig Rail's Preview for Mildura

Tue, 22 Jan 2019

The Mildura Holden We Say Yes More Often Pace highlights the program of eight races at Mildura. The South Australian trained pacer Futurist finished fourth in the Italian Cup at Globe Derby last outing and is very tough. Jambiani has been well travelled in recent seasons having raced in Victoria, New South Wales, Western Australia and South Australia. He finished fifth at his first run for trainer Luke Watson and should be sharper from that performance. Shadow Spar is a fast beginner from the mobile and ran some big races over the sprint distance at Mildura last season. Misterfreeze is very consistent and should give a forward showing. Somedan finished on well from behind the leader at his latest second and Tipitinya is very smart when racing at his peak form. Whenmechief is the only horse drawn on the second line but he is a tough type so the open class event should be a very competitive affair.

He may not be in the "moral" category but his past two efforts have been extremely good and he is drawn to go close.
