2021 NORTHERLY STAKES – RACE ANALYSIS AND TIPS

Reasonable tempo with a few going forward, headed by Western Empire. WESTERN EMPIRE was very good when last in work culminating in a determined win in the Group 2 WATC Derby. Has a strong record at this circuit with four wins and three placings from eight starts and has placed one from one first-up. Looks the goods.

VALOUR ROAD resumed in fine fashion with a close-up third at Belmont and will strip fitter second-up from the spell. Rates a serious contender. MASSIMO has only missed a drum once in seven attempts at this trip and looks a genuine top-three contender. NAUGHTY BY NATURE (12) is first-up and can run a race while fresh. PLATOON (9) is a four-time winner here and has to be respected.
