2017 BLACK CAVIAR LIGHTNING STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Expect them to zip along early in a sprint of this class with the speed drawn on the far side where Heatherly, Star Turn and Flamberge have the three inside stalls.

The race looks to pan out well for FLYING ARTIE. The top class colt was terrific in the spring winning both of his runs and produced a powerful finishing burst to beat a field of boom three-year-olds in the G1 Coolmore Stud Stakes down the straight.

Has always given the impression he would improve with maturity and with a fine fresh record can use his turn of foot off a hot speed to finish over the top of them. STAR TURN took great strides in the spring where his best win was when defeating the older sprinters in the 1100m Schillaci Stakes.

Won a G3 when resuming in that campaign so is proven fresh and was third to Flying Artie in his only run down the straight so can challenge him again.

SPIETH has raced through his grades quickly and was luckless not to win the Darley here in the spring. Expect him to be charging late like he was that day while SUPIDO resumes from a long spell but is unbeaten in four runs down the straight.
