2020 STAR KINGDOM STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Cracking sprint contest with a number of talented types set to clash in this year's Group 3 Star Kingdom Stakes. Strong tempo anticipated.

HANDLE THE TRUTH (12) did a very good job first up when too strong late with the big weight at Canberra. Returned a new career peak and while stepping up sharply in grade, he appears well placed down in the weights. Handles all conditions and should prove hard to beat.

VILLAMI (9) went enormous first up when leading throughout in the Fireball. Back better than ever and can take that next step. KEMENTARI (1) a big watch in his return now gelded. Never easy off such an unusual break (failed at stud), but has the engine and has trialled very well. MANICURE (6) the next in line.
