Race 8 – Attwood Marshall A.D. Hollindale Stakes – This Group 2 main event will be worth $358,000 in prize money. Comin’ Through is set to be the favourite here thanks to his recent brilliant form in Sydney, where he scored a 4 features from 6 starts over similar distances to this. He was 5th in his last outing, the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes and if he brings that form here, he could well prove to be too classy. It’s Somewhat will be in his second up start here after resuming in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes last month, coming home in sixth place. Has a strong second up record, featuring 6 times in 9 starts and looks to be a big chance here. Bedford has been consistently solid this campaign, bagging 5 features in 7 starts. He’s run fourth in his last two outings, and on both occasions, was not far off the pace. Genuine each-way bet option here.
Betting: Comin’ Through $2.90; It’s Somewhat $4.60; Tom Melbourne $5.00; Oregon’s Day $8.50; Egg Tart $9.00; Satono Rasen $14.00; Bedford $16.00; One Foot In Heaven $20.00; Consensus $23.00
