Daily Racing Tips – Geelong Cup Day Special
Geelong - Race 6 3:20pm AEDT
No. 5 Ultimate Edition
This is far from the strongest edition of the Geelong Classic and Ultimate Edition is the only horse with any real upside in this field.
He never gave his rivals a chance when he led from start to finish at Bendigo last start and I don’t think that the big step-up in trip will prove to be an issue for him.
I don’t think he will be a Victoria Derby contender, but he is good enough to win this race.
Geelong - Race 7 4:00pm AEDT
No. 2 Ashrun
This is a stellar edition of the Geelong Cup and you can make a case for a number of different horses in this field.
Ashrun is the European stayer with the most consistent form in this contest.
He finished second in the Prix Kergorlay in France, a race that has been a strong form reference for the Geelong Cup and the Melbourne Cup in the past, and he has been placed at Group 1 level in Germany.
Geelong - Race 8 4:40pm AEDT
No. 1 Xilong
I am confident that Xilong is a better horse than her first-up effort suggests and she can return to winning form in the Black Pearl Stakes.
She ran out of puff late first-up at Caulfield and I think she should take good improvement from that effort.
There are no stars in this field and on her best form she will prove very tough to beat.
Geelong - Race 9 5:20pm AEDT
No. 11 November Dreaming
November Dreaming will be better over further, but there is no doubt that her class will take her a long way in this contest.
Her best form does give her a clear class edge over the rest of this field and she has run well fresh in the past.
Craig Williams in the saddle is a big positive and she should have every possible chance to make a winning return to the races.
