2019 SPRING CHAMPION STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Looks a two horse war on paper with two very handy 3YOs set to clash in this year's Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes. Tempo looks solid enough.

CASTELVECCHIO (1) was solid enough first up before not disgraced in the Golden Rose when going to the line on the heels of Kubrick. Ran the 10th fastest L200m of the day and is sure to relish the step up in trip. Exploded when stepping up to the mile last preparation and is sure to relish getting back to Randwick. Top rated on best form, the one to beat.

SHADOW HERO (2) made a mess of them last start and it's very hard seeing him taking a backwards step here. Nonetheless there was nothing between the main pair in the Dulcify, has the market over-reacted?

QUICK THINKER (4) should relish the wet-track, while JUST THINKIN' (3) has to be kept safe with the blinkers on for the first time.
