Welcome to the last week of this month’s tipping comp. Well done to Sean for a great win to take me down last week, some fine tipping going down in the process.
Tonight we are off to the Magellan Derby- Hurdling 1600m on soft turf.
So as I see it the 4 main contenders will be Menezik Ts, Novembre sur l’Eyre, SalutRoyale di Fiori and Mamie De Vitx. All of these have performed well in the Liverpool Cup 1600m except for Mamie De Vitx who is the only one to beat Menezik Ts on the soft turf and I think that will be significant.
Mamie De Vitx is a beaut little filly – she will make a very good broodmare, and is in foal as we speak. She looks to be more suited for the staying distances winning the 2200m Liverpool Cup Round1 in fine fashion from 12 by almost 1 length clear. Also she won the 1st round of the Team Cup over 1600m 10 days ago by almost the same margin. Truly a fine filly one of which I can only dream of owning 😉
1st: Mamie De Vitx from stable Yvan974, will be 1 length clear
2nd: Menezik Ts from stable Tilucky solid performer will be stalking
3rd: Novembre sur l’Eyre from stable LaurentdArcachon
This is shaping up to be 1 of the finest races for hedgers I’ve seen, great depth, it really could go 5 ways.
** Double points if you can pick the winner **
