Even a poor draw and the fact he has not run at the course should not stand in his way. He is a class act and is at least 7kg better handicapped with his closest rival.
Inara looks equally dominant in the fillies’ race and is unlikely to taste defeat, despite being 6kg worse off with Come Fly With Me after beating her by two lengths last time. Grant van Niekerk just tracked her rival, punched Inara into the lead 300m out and won easing up. I expect much of the same this time.
