The Rating Bureau Race Assessment for the G2 Autumn Stakes at Caulfield this Saturday.
'Black Heart Bart is the clear standout in this and we are happy to be accordingly.'
Both Houtzen and From Within come into this race with dominant ratings and we are prepared to back both, playing for the best result on Houtzen who has proven her ability with higher pressure early speed.
“From Barrier 5 here Our Boy Malachi should settle just off the leading bunch with cover (perfect) and then if he unleashes the same finishing effort he did last start, he’ll be very hard to hold out.”
The Rating Bureau’s Daniel O’Sullivan is betting around Hartnell & Jameka. “Both Oceanographer and Almandin appeal as the clear betting value in this race.”
Extreme Choice and Astern appeal as potential value, however Extreme Choice looks best set up to potentially reach a new career peak here and that makes us lean his way as a good betting prospect.
