2022 KEN RUSSELL MEMORIAL CLASSIC – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Scorching early speed from Grace's Secret and Nettuno. NETTUNO (3) is an exciting colt from the Gollan stable. Made it two wins from as many starts when he led all the way and destroyed a small field over this trip at Doomben four weeks ago. Much deeper field today but he is open to further improvement and from a perfect gate is hard to go past.

ROBUSTO (4) heads a strong Waller contingent. Last raced when he led all the way and scored with ease over 1300m at Warwick Farm on 9 February. Heads the betting for the Atkins so he will be better for this run but is too good to leave out.

Stablemate GRACE'S SECRET (11) is an interesting runner over from NZ. Led all the way to win a 1000m Listed race at Riccarton at her last run on 13 November. Bred to want a bit of ground but she goes very fast. Keep her in mind at juicy odds. WEST OF AFRICA (7) and LONDON (9) come here fresh from sound debuts in NSW. Both face a step up in grade but have promise and are from leading yards.
