RACE 1

#2

CONGRESSIONAL

$3.30

WE BLACK BOOKED THIS RUNNER AFTER IT’S DEBUT IN A 2YO 1100M MAIDEN ON THE GEELONG SYNTHETIC……..WITH THE COMMENTS ” WILL WIN MAIDEN SOON & BETTER FOR FURTHER”. HE GOT RIGHT BACK THERE ON DEBUT BUT MADE NICE STEADY GROUND LATE TO RUN INTO PLACING’S. WAS BEATEN 3.2L BUT THE RACE WINNER LED AND KICKED RIGHT AWAY FROM PACK, WHILE CONGRESSIONAL WAS ONLY JUST WARMING UP VERY LATE IN THE RACE FROM WELL BACK.

HE GET’S OUT TO 1400M TODAY, JUMPS FROM A GOOD GATE AND OLIVER STICKS WITH HIM….SO THERE’S PLENTY OF TICKED BOXES WHEN ASSESSING HIS HOPES TODAY.

THERE’S A COUPLE OF FIRST STARTERS WHO TRIALED NOT TOO BAD BUT NONE OF THEM CERTAINLY JUMPED OUT AS BEING A STAR. OF THE RACED BRIGADE I CLEARLY LEAN TO CONGRESSIONAL AFTER HIS STRONG RUNNING ON EFFORT AT DEBUT.

NO LUXURY ODDS BUT SURELY HARD TO BEAT AND WORTH A TICKET IF YOU’RE HAVING A PUNT THIS SUNDAY.
