Nature Strip

9/2/19 Caulfied Tips: Rubiton Stakes Preview 2019

Tagged: Caulfield

Nature returns

Distance 1100m
Grade Group 2
Track Rating Good 4
Prizemoney $200,000
Class SW + P, No Maidens
2018 winner Super Cash ($4.60)

All eyes will be on the return of Nature Strip in this race, who was set to kick-off his campaign last week, prior to the Weir saga.

He is sure to fly early and it is likely to take a good horse to run him down.

I certainly believe there is one who is up to the task, and this particular runner will appreciate the break neck speed up front.

Market Movers Racing Market Movers

There are no significant early moves in betting. 

 

Horse Racing Key Runners

#1 Voodoo Lad $4.80

Loves Caulfield (8:4-3-0) and is in this up to his ears.

Will need them to go quick early and there is every chance they will with Nature Strip engaged.

He will sit back off the hot speed near last, before sweeping down the outside to run home hard over the top. 

Goes on top. 

 

#2 Nature Strip $1.50

Will lead and attempt to run them off their feet.

Being first-up, there is a chance he could run along too fiercely and that should be considered a significant risk here.

The price is very skinny at the current quote of $1.50, however with the lack of opposition and speed map favours he deserves favouritism.

Leading Chance. 

 

#3 Jungle Edge $10

Would need it wet to be any chance against this quality.

The speed map also looks tricky for him, where he is likely to be forced to race outside the leader or go back from the awkward draw in gate 7.

Far too much against on this occasion. No.  

 

#4 Thermal Current $15

Gets the suck run just in behind the leading division, which could be the place to be.

He has been up a while now and will have a fitness edge on most entered here.

In his latest, he did enough when finishing a close up 5 of 9 down the straight at Flemington after doing his best work late.

Can run on strongly for a placing.  

   

#5 Illustrious Lad $15

Had a pipe opener on Monday at Sale when finishing 2 of 9 in much weaker grade.

This is significantly harder and whilst the betting syndicates love them on the quick back up, I doubt they will get warm about his chances here.

Looks completely outclassed. No. 

 

#8 Tavisan $10

Is typically an on-pace runner, however comes up against Nature Strip here who should be far too speedy.

He is a big chance to be posted outside the lead or wider throughout, and from there his chances are limited. Avoid. 

 

Of The Others

None preferred.
