Best From The West: Kalgoorlie – 5th October 2019

The break between Belmont and Ascot is filled with the running of the Kalgoorlie carnival and the Cup in particular on Saturday.

It is a good edition of that Kalgoorlie Cup with plenty of chances and the fascination of Ihtsahymn back from Darwin.

However we are going for one racing on the limit being Spiritual Warrior who has won three on the trot.

He has loved getting to these sort of distances. Several times at Belmont he has raced on the speed and toughed it out, winning by small margins.

With a lovely drop in weight, he can race the same way from a soft barrier.

If they back a few others we can do better than the odds on offer.

The following race is one with a decent sized field and Stoicism ran well on his return to racing.

That came two weeks ago and he battled strongly on the pace.

There was support for him on that day and clearly he'd done enough work to be ready first up at the mile.

Fitter now he can push forward again from a middle alley and this is hardly a strong race. He seems well placed.
