The Velvet Queen hard to beat

Moscow Night put a below par wet track return behind him when breaking through for a length success in a course and distance maiden on a good 4 surface last month. Made all that day and is well drawn on the rail if connections wish to employ similar tactics here.

While he may well get to the front Glint Of Silver from barrier two has raced from the front in the past and usually races close to the speed. Runner-up over this trip at Kembla Grange last start he wasn’t beaten far when sixth in a Benchmark 72 event at Randwick prior to that.

The pick here however is the Peter and Paul Snowden-trained hold up performer Wollombi who has shown solid form in the past including when fourth first up this spell. That effort came at Benchmark 64 level over 1200m on a good 4 track at Gosford last month.

The daughter of Extreme Choice managed to double her career tally switched to Benchmark 72 event over this course and distance subsequently however. Finished well from off the pace that day and while she would appreciate any softening of the ground she is taken to score under Sam Clipperton.

Kingdom to score for Jones

The Hallowed Crown gelding has joined the Steven O’Dea and Matthew Hoysted team since finishing a fair fifth in a Benchmark 78 event over 1400m at Sandown Hillside in December. That effort marked his final start for Patrick Payne and while only third first up last spell he has won on his return in the past.

Claiming rider Angela Jones does well at this venue with a healthy level stakes profit and a 16% strike-rate (13/82) here in the last 12 months. Jones partners the Tony Gollan-trained Briars Kingdom on whom she won a 1400m Class 3 contest by half-a-length here three starts back.

Having missed the ride when the pick was runner-up over the same track and trip subsequently she was back in the saddle for a third over 1350m at Doomben last time out. The six-year-old is well drawn in six here and is expected to track the pace prior to registering his fifth career success.

Wednesday for Belmont Park success

Regal Access doubled his career tally when successful in a 1000m Class 1 at Ascot in October. The four-year-old looks likely to jump as favourite for the third at Belmont Park, a 1000m Class 3 handicap.

Graeme Ballantyne’s charge should have no issues with the forecast soft 5 track but faces stiff competition from the experienced Wednesday who is a regular at this venue.

The six-year-old mare has placed on her last two starts including in a Class 5 handicap over this distance at Pinjarra Scarpside on her penultimate start.
