Great edition of the Group 3 Coongy Cup!
Gregolimo has been smashed in early betting. The Galiway gelding turned heads in his Australian debut at Flemington, and his international form reads incredibly well for this event. His record at the distance is first-class, and he is a winner previously second-up. The inform Jamie ‘Fast’ Kah takes the ride, and he looks super dangerous jumping from an inside draw. Hard to toss!
Steinem is ready to run a big race. Her fresh run behind Mr Brightside was full of merit, and she improved sharply chasing home Amelia’s Jewel at her latest outing. The step out to 2000m is advantageous, and I expect her to explode third-up from a spell on Wednesday. The Frankel mare always performs well at Caulfield, and she will appreciate the significant class drop. Her recent winning record is the biggest deterrent.
Foujita San returned to the winners’ stall after a consistent preparation to date. The Maurice gelding deserves his chance at this level, and he looks perfectly weighted to produce a peak run for the campaign. He has been screaming out for the longer trip all spell, and I suspect he has the fitness edge on most of his rivals. The awkward barrier is the primary concern.
Suggested Bet: Gregolimo @ $3.60
