Darley Classic - Runner By Runner Guide

1 year ago Horse Racing

2016 Darley Classic winner Malaguerra


Jockey: Dwayne Dunn  Barrier: 13  Odds: $6.00

Pros: His record says it all and well know what he's capable off. Barrier 13 looks ideal, he is improving as the preparation progresses and he should get a stronger tempo than the Everest. Hasn't finished outside the top 3 in 8 starts at Flemington

Cons: Two doubts still remain: A firm track and his fitness. Was carrying plenty of condition at the start of the prep and missing a run in the Manikato doesn't help

Verdict: Some query but on class he's still the one to beat up the straight.


Jockey: Kerrin McEvoy  Barrier: 10  Odds: $4.00

Pros: The most inform sprinter in the land who continues to rise to every challenge. Won his only start up the straight and has clearly improved since. Tough, makes his own luck on the speed. What's not too like?

Cons: Been pretty lucky with the soft runs he's been afforded up front this prep and his grand final was a month ago. It'll take a big effort to peak again.

Verdict: Doesn't know how to run a bad race and must be heavily respected again.
