BOLD COAST was an ultra-impressive winner over this trip, with the blinkers on last time out and with his early speed, he looks far better suited to this trip at this stage of his career. His conditioner is in a great run of form and a repeat of that last effort, should be good enough. LIFE IS GOOD drops further in the ratings and he has been knocking on the door since those blinkers were fitted two star- ts back. He has a solid record over this trip & with Strydom up, must be included in this competitive handicap. CHANGING SEASONS has also dropped in the ratings and he looks set for a big run over this trip. With his stable jockey taking the ride this time around, he presents some good upset potential for punters.
