All Too Soon’s breakthrough win at Randwick on Tuesday looked good in the flesh and the Punters Intel data certainly suggests she’s a filly who can go places next time in.
On a day when the times were a little on the slow side with the soft conditions, the three-year-old produced some very nice splits than compared favourably with the shorter races on the card.
A last 600m of 34.01 in the 1800m event was the fastest sectional all day aside from a few horses in the 1200m sprint won by Drachenfels.
She wound into her work stylishly running 11.04 (400-200) then sustaining the run with an 11.41 final 200m.
Using the Drachenfels race as a comparison, his last 600m was 33.42 so All Too Soon’s effort shows she’s well above average.
The other star performer was another filly called Star Sensation.
After blowing the start she was able to pick up ground along the inside, in what was considered inferior going, to post 34.48 for her last 600m.
She was only runner in her 1300m event to break 12 seconds for the final 200 running 11.84.
A couple of maidens who were beaten at Randwick showed more than enough to suggest there are wins down the track.
Seaway was well supported in making his debut over 1200m and he didn’t have the most comfortable of runs. Between the 800m and the 600m he ran 10.90 to start to work into the race.
From there he completed a last 600m of 34.16 with an 11.51 final split. Under the circumstances it wasn’t a bad debut and he’d only had the one trial so there will be upside to him.
Higher Ground was a beaten favourite in a 1400m maiden that followed but there was still merit in his performance to finish fourth.
After settling second last he ran a last 600m of 34.89, second only to the winner, but did knock up over the last 200m as he failed to break 12 seconds.
Fastest last 600m: Drachenfels 33.42
Most ground covered: Doukhan +17.3m (2400m).
