Opacity Looking To Strike Second-Up



Opacity will be out to maintain his unbeaten second-up record when he steps out at Randwick on Saturday for the Shoot Out Mile- a BM88 over 1600m (Race 3 @ 1:25pm). Stepping up from 1400m first-up, Opacity is dropping back dramatically in grade after his run in the Tramway Stakes where he was beaten 3.5L by Dreamforce. Hugh Bowman will also be out to remain unbeaten on the gelding when he partners him for third time after two victories on him last preparation.

Drawn barrier 9, Opacity maps to sit mid-field or a touch worse. He should be able to utilise his brilliant turn of speed over the 1600m and be most competitive at a track he’s won on over the distance. The main chances in the race look to be Waterhouse and Bott trained Discharged who will make it’s own luck on speed from barrier 1 and the Matthew Smith trained Nimalee who looks a progressive stayer in the making, drawing well in barrier 5.

Best of luck to his connections!
