Race 3 Stakes
#5 Fantastic Bear
This is only his second start since April and his most recent start was a month ago. Even though he owns a slick 42.15 PB over this trip he has been raced way too sparingly for mine. His last start was over 535m a month ago and now he steps straight up to 720m. He meets two strong stayers who have been racing in great form (Gunnadoo Cove and Winsome April) and they have been hitting the line hard. They are both rock hard fit and I am happy to take Fantastic Bear on here.
LAY (WIN) Fantastic Bear on the Betfair SP
Race 3 Hudson Pacific 1-4 wins Final
#1 Dundee Calypso
I was very impressed with her run at Sandown Park last Sunday over this distance range where she began very well and ran an in form stayer to within 2 lengths in a very slick time for Sunday class. In this event, she looks very well drawn in the cherry and has never finished worse than third in 4 attempts over this track and trip. She should prove too strong for these rivals.
