Punter's Intelligence Wrap - Randwick 10th February

Caballus backed up his dominant first-up win with another impressive performance at Royal Randwick on Saturday to win the feature Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes (1200m).

The colt had a fitness edge over his rivals, but he raced well, and Punter's Intelligence recorded his sharp turn of foot.

The race was run at a slow tempo, with leader Griff running the first 600m in 36.20, approximately 6.5 lengths slower than the TAB Highway (1200m) and five lengths inferior to the Benchmark 78 event over 1200m for that section.

Caballus travelled wide throughout, but as soon as Josh Parr clicked him up, he accelerated hard, running the meeting quickest 400m-200m split in 10.59 and maintaining a strong finishing speed to the line. He can continue improving, and a rise in trip will pose no issue.

Makarena was heavily backed late in the trade, and her run had merit. The Hawkes-trained galloper wasn't suited to the race shape but closed off strong, running the race's quickest final 600m in 33.21. She is still lightly raced and an improving type.

Encap tried hard in defeat and Celestial Legend was solid in the inferior ground.

Tom Kitten was an eye-catching run who was outsprinted, but he built through his gears and was strong late, running the equal fastest final 200m split of the race in 11.36. He's come back well, and follow him over more ground.

Fully Lit was brave winning the $2M Inglis Millenium (1100m) after being caught three-wide out on a limb throughout in a genuine tempo.

The two-year-old drew barrier 17, worked early and covered 1107.8m. To his credit, he responded under pressure when challenged and recorded 11.15 for his 400m-200m split.

He has the ability to absorb pressure, and with a more positive race setup, 1200m next start looks like no issue.

Rag Queen flew home after being outpaced throughout and was in an impossible position prior to the final turn.

Once she got her mind on the job, she made up significant ground and surged to the line to run third.
Her final 600m was the clear fastest of the race in 33.84. She is still learning and will only improve with time.

Rue De Royale was solid in defeat and El Morzillo had no luck.

Amor Victorious is on an upwards rating's spiral, and he went to a new level again when bolting in to win the ASI Solutions Handicap (1600m).

He did it on both ends, leading at a good-even tempo and kept building to the line, increasing his winning margin and putting his rivals away in style.

He ran slick overall time relative to the day, even after adjustments, and clocked 1:34.85.

To put that into perspective, it was approximately 15 lengths faster than the BM 72 Handicap (1600m) and 21.5 lengths quicker than the BM 78 Handicap (1600m).

Continue to follow him, and his sectional profile suggests he can step again.

Marquess will benefit from the run, and Diamil ran on well, running the race's quickest final 200m in 11.66.

It's worth noting some other sectional performers, including Infinitive, who had no luck at all in the 3&4YO Benchmark 78 event over 1600m but still ran the meeting's third fastest final 200m in 11.14. She is ready to win third-up.

Forgive Celerity's debut run in the Lohnro Plate (1000m) after she missed the start and then had too much to do. She had to exert too much energy mid-race but still clocked a fast 400m-200m split in 10.73. She will benefit from the race experience.

Fastest last 600m: Key Largo 32.53
