The Form Hound’s Saturday Selections: July 23 – The Meadows

 

The Meadows

Race 5 Hudson Pacific Maturity Semi Final 1

#2 Demon Bale

This star chaser has found a great heat here and is superbly drawn. He’s benefited by some risky beginners in the squeeze boxes which shouldn’t cause him much pressure early, so expect him to balance up nicely. Even if he doesn’t lead early he has shown ability to push through along the rail. I just loved the way he ran away from his rivals late in his heat last week.

The Meadows

Race 6 Hudson Pacific Maturity Semi Final 2

#3 Invictus Rapid  

Ultimate professional that doesn’t make many mistakes early as evidenced by his all the way win here in his heat in quick time. He’s found a winnable Semi Final here and Wot Price Flash being risky early ‘off the red’ should help him find the rail. I expect Ultimate Magic to struggle to cross on the first turn. Invictus Rapid has been mixing it with the best for a long time now and that adds to my confidence here.
