2021 BRISBANE CUP – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Anticipating a solid early tempo despite the small field with plenty of pace engaged. CARIF (1) looks set to peak at the right time. He is building up to a win and there was plenty to like about his latest effort when a nose second in the G3 Premier's Cup at this track. There could be a little more improvement to come and that would see him hard to beat.

KNIGHTS ORDER (4) used the inside draw to advantage last start, sitting on the pace and going on to score over 2400m in the Listed Winter Cup at Rosehill. Race fit and gives the impression he will see the longer journey out.

RONDINELLA (3) was runner up in the Sydney Cup the last time she attempted this distance. A repeat of that performance would see her tough to beat. LORD BELVEDERE (5) hasn't been far away and should be involved while SWEET THOMAS (7) strips fitter so can improve.
