2020 SOUTHERN CROSS STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Small but competitive line up with a number of different form-lines converging in this year's Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes. Expect a true tempo.

SPECIAL REWARD (6) went down first up when no match late for Southern Lad, but no knock on that effort and he should improve sharply racing second up. Well placed down in the weights and looks to catch a few of these on the hop.

JUNGLE EDGE (1) is licking his lips with the prospect of the heavy track, but hasn't been missed by the handicapper. Still has to be respected. CASCADIAN (2) is unlikely to be anywhere near his top for this, but has trialled up very well and could surprise late. ASHLOR (4) sets up very well for this and remains under strong notice.
