Race 7 – AAMI Chairman’s Stakes – This Group 3 main event will be worth a total of $120,000 in prize money. Leicester will be the favourite here and will be helped by having a rails run. Ran home hard last start over 1800 metres which augers well for an increase in distance for this race. Was fourth in his last start after having featured in his four straight races prior. Expecting to return to that featuring form here. Greycliffe will be third up here and has won his only third up race previously. He started this campaign with a first up fourth place and followed up with a greatly improved second up last start second place at this track, running second, less than a length off the pace. High ‘N’ Dry is expected to be very strong again here after scoring a win prior to his last start third place. Box On Collins is in top form, scoring a last start win, which has seen his price firm slightly. Will be in the mix.
