Race 2: Sabois 4UP Maiden Plate 1000m
Factual resumes here, was good on debut then raced a touch flat 2nd up. Has trialled well leading up to this showing brilliant speed and was eased down in the straight, leads here and should prove very hard to catch. A Thousand Degrees is going OK, had every chance last start as an odds on favourite, maps nicely here and horses from the McEvoy stable always improve here at Balaklava, must be respected but looks a touch short. Our Benevento raced well last prep without being able to breakthrough for a win, has trialled well leading up to this, likely settles back and should be hitting the line well late.
