Coolmore Classic Preview

 Mar 16 2018

There is something special about these Group 1 mares races. They are always so open and you can make a case for 8-10 horses which makes for fantastic betting and also a fantastic quaddie opportunity.

I found it very tough to dissect but the two equal top picks for me are Dixie Blossoms and Egg Tart.

Both are coming off outstanding first-up efforts and Dixie Blossoms won well, while Egg Tart had no luck whatsoever and should have won the Liverpool City Cup.

Dixie Blossoms is a better horse at Randwick but her record isn’t as bad as it looks here.

Heaven’s Above won this race last year and I reckon she is going as well if not a touch better this autumn. Her last 200m first-up was very encouraging.

Silent Sedition rebounded to form second-up and also has a tremendous winning chance.

Many good judges are coming up with Raiment as the weighted horse this year and she does meet Dixie Blossoms 4.5kg better off from running second to her last start. She did win well third-up last year but my query is how much improvement she has left and whether she needs it really wet.

Oregon’s Day is worth thought for quaddies along with Alizee, who just knocked up late in the Surround but is very classy.
