Coolmore Stud Stakes Preview

The sprinting feature for the three-year olds down the famous Flemington straight, and what a great edition this looks to be.

Jacquinot was good in The Everest in what was a strange run and prior to that was massive when winning the Golden Rose. Comes to Flemington for the first time which I think will suit, and back to restricted three-year-old grade. I think he possesses the potential to be winning this and with plenty of speed on it just sets up a treat for him. On top hope.

In Secret was game when she was run down by Jacquinot in the Golden Rose over seven furlongs. She loves a rain effected track and dropping back to 1200m will only benefit. Will be another horse that will love the hot tempo up front and should get a nice run with cover. Godolphin and James McDonald have been on fire recently and this could well be another group 1 win for them.

Economics was favourite for the Blue Sapphire before playing up and being a late scratching. Prior to that was very impressive first up when winning and has had a jump out since, which he won in convincing style down the straight. Heading into this fresh isn’t bad for him I feel and if behaves pre-race is a genuine chance.

Coolangatta returns after winning the Moir and has had a jumpout since defeating Bella Nipotina who has since become a Group 1 winner herself. Won’t get the advantage that she did at The Valley but is a classy filly with plenty of upside. Harder here but class factor allows her to be an each way chance.

Buenos Noches looks like a Flemington horse. Has had the two runs at headquarters both of which have been very good. Last start nearly chased down Giga Kick who went on to win an Everest. Has since had a trial behind Lost And Running in Sydney and comes into this in very good order. Winning hope.

On top hope is Jaquinot, with The Everest into the Coolmore proven to be a winning formula. Buenos Noches in for second and In Secret for third with Economics sneaking in for fourth in what should be a cracking battle.
