Race 5

No. 1 Kabob had his race and now gets stretched out on the grass, he looks set for the money run. No. 3 Zohan looks like a very sneaky Calder shipper for trainer O’Neill. No. 4 Justinsidethegates exits our HTW list and will be heard from late. No. 7 Circle Diamond was last seen running with the likes of I Want Revenge and Gato Go Win, that race last year ended up as a very key race and this may be a different colt as a 3yo.
