2020 CAMERON HANDICAP – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Pace looks strong where Just Thinkin' and Quackerjack will forge to the lead closely followed by Special Reward and McCormack.

ROCK (6) won this race last year and love his set-up again this year. Slow getaway meant he was last in transit in the Tramsay first-up but still zipped home to be beaten under 2L, recording the fastest L600 of the race. Epsom run was outstanding off a wide run and he is 2/2 second-up. Will take plenty of beating.

SPECIAL REWARD (2) is his stiffest opponent according to the market. He's got a freakish winning record of eight from sixteen. Two runs back in Group races have been solid, without having the best of luck on both occasions. Home track advantage and he's on the back-up from the Theo Marks last weekend. Ticks all the right boxes.

THE CANDY MAN (4) is a star. He's now with Snowden's for this preparation at the minimum. Unwanted in betting fresh but his will to win got him across the stripe. 1500m is short of his best but it's hard to knock a trier. Wide alley will give him galloping room to rattle home. JUST THINKIN' (9) wore down Fun Fact to win a BM94 last start. Untapped.
