SPEED MAP RACING TIPS

Maotai and In The Congo like to go quick and put the pressure on up front.

Marine One, Generation, General Beau, Mazu & Baccanali will be jostling for position forward of midfield.

Shaquero, Paulele, I Am Lethal and Ranch Hand out the back to swoop.


ARROWFIELD SPRINT | KEY RUNNERS + RACING TIPS

1. In The Congo – Golden Rose winner in the Spring who was a good 3rd in The Galaxy.

2. Paulele – Six starts at Randwick for 5 wins and a 3rd in the TJ Smith last week. Rates well again.

6. Mazu – Has been set for this and has won 4 in a row. Handles the wet. 

8. Ranch Hand – Sprints well fresh and races best over the sprint distances. Handles the wet and is the knockout chance here.


ARROWFIELD SPRINT | SUMMARY

High quality sprint for the 3yos that has again assembled a strong field. Look 4 legitimate winning chances but hard to devise a betting strategy at this point given In The Congo, Paulele and Mazu are all hard in the market. Will back Ranch Hand each way as can surprise and deliver a knockout blow.
