Later on in the day, Pay The Punters will be out to improve over a bit more ground. See more here.

She has her stable debut for the Hollywood Syndicate, with this being her 12th career start. It will be her first run after a 21 week lay-off, after things went awry in her last start back in July last year. She has had two grass gallops to get her going again and the stable are happy with how she took those workouts. With that said, she will still be lacking a bit of race-fitness and may just be in need of the run as a result. As far as predictions go, a top 6 finish will be a fair expectation.

Winning Form Comment: Poor latest before given a long break. Likes this distance and chance if fit and well.

1750m – Maiden Plate

9 – Pay The Punters

Jockey: Nooresh Juglall
Wgt: 58.0kg
Draw: 9 (12 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 50/1

He has been most disappointing in both starts so far. Outpaced over the shorter trip last time out, he never managed to get into the race and ended up fading out tamely. He has his third run now and we have opted to send him over a bit more ground, where the modest tempo should allow him to settle. Time is running out for this son of Var and if he doesn’t improve here, we may opt to send him to a weaker center.

Winning Form Comment: Two poor runs but tries this distance for the first time and can improve.
