I wasn't around inbut Paula was, and some of the things she was telling me - I think maybe he was just ready too early. I think he responds very well to training. We look at the surface he's running on. We look at how he's recovering. There are nuances around limiting little bits of rotation.

It's creating the overall package so that he can perform to the best of his ability on the day. His motor - his heart, his lungs - tells me he can handle anything longer as well as the shorter stuff. I think it might actually be a mistake to try to do too much about that. I'm less concerned about loss of energy in that stride than trying to run in a way that feels uncomfortable.
Because at the moment they don't. Has he left it too late? Farah turned 35 last month. Bekele was 31 on his marathon debut, Kipchoge and Gebrselassie not even in their 30s. There is getting round, there is improvement. And there is making a genuine impact. It took Bekele two years of training and racing from that debut to record his personal best.
It took Gebrselassie six years. This was by no means a rash decision. It took a lot of talking, a lot of deep conversations, until we got to the point where we were, shall we just press the button on this and go for it?

But I've seen his motivation and I've seen his desire, and put that together with someone who's immensely talented, I definitely think it's something that will end in a good result. Some people run their best one on their first ever one, and they can't ever replicate it.
Finche, who was carrying 59kg, still worked to the line okay and will strip fitter for this. He was an impressive winner over m at Deauville two-back, beating Tiberian by 1. There was plenty to like about his victory two starts ago and his Australian debut in the Geelong Cup was solid given the winner had a 5kg weight advantage on him. Northwest Passage, who beat Finche by 0.

Has won two from three over this trip. Ventura Storm beat him by a long way last start. He worked to the line okay in the Caulfield Cup last start after losing his spot when the pace quickened at the m, eventually finishing 4.
His effort in the Bart Cummings m was plain but his overall record here is sound 6: He ran the sixth-fastest final furlong in the Caulfield Cup and should appreciate the extra journey here. However, he does come into this race in strong form, having taken out the Moonee Valley Cup m at his most recent run.
That victory followed an unlucky 10th in the Caulfield Cup when stuck in behind runners at a vital stage. The son of Zoffany was just 1.
Has put together a solid block of form, which is something he has struggled with in the past. Zahra should give him every possible chance from barrier seven. His two runs over this distance have been very ordinary. Jockey Michael Walker admitted post-race that he probably got to the front a bit too early but the horse was strong enough to fight off the challengers, most notably Brimham Rocks who finished half-a-length away.
That win followed a terrific third to Yucatan in the Herbert Power m after being held-up for clear running at the top of the straight.British Summer Championships 2018 – Day 2 Finals
The son of Shirocco has raced over this distance six times for one win and two placings. His two efforts in Australia have been very good and he gets in relatively light here with 53kg. He was G2-placed over this distance four-back before finishing second to one-time Melbourne Cup favourite Withhold in the Northumberland Plate m. Lexus winners have not fared well in this race in recent times, with CismontaneOceanographer and Excess Knowledge all battling in the Cup.
He was good in the Herbert Power, but Yucatan was better. Muntahaa beat him by 7. Ran home from 14th at the m to finish fifth in this event last year and carries the same weight 53kg here.
A bit of sting out of the track would help his cause. Rarely puts in a poor one and is quite adaptable in terms of his racing pattern. He ran well over this trip in the Sydney Cup earlier this year. Class is the major query. He settled in the last few in the G3 Geelong Cup m last start and failed to improve his position at any stage, finishing 12th, beaten 7L. Damian Lane will have to produce a genuine miracle from barrier He was tipped out for a spell following his poor showing in the Listed Andrew Ramsden m but his form since returning has been most consistent, albeit against inferior opposition to what he meets here.
The son of Manhattan Rain pulled out plenty to win the Geelong Cup m last start — a race that has produced three Melbourne Cup winners since If you take out his failure in the Andrew Ramsden, his form at m and beyond is rock-solid.
He maps to lead and if the track is favouring on-pacers, he could take a bit of catching. The VRC St Leger has turned out to be a very ordinary form race, with runner-up Rezealient and third-placegetter Wolfe Tone recording just one win between them since.
With that in mind, Runaway is yet to really prove himself beyond m. She had genuine excuses when seventh in the Caulfield Cup last start, getting a mile back in a very slowly-run affair.
Two-back she finished second to her superstar stablemate Winx in the G1 Turnbull Stakes mbeaten just one length. Why she can win: Her Caulfield Cup run was much better than it looks on paper and all four of her efforts this preparation have been full of merit.

The expansive Flemington track suits her style of racing, as she showed with an outstanding second to Winx two-back. Has no weight on her back. The Charlie Appleby-trained Cross Counter. He was last seen finishing second in the G2 Great Voltigeur Stakes m at York on August 22, following dominant back-to-back victories over m at Goodwood and Ascot.
He broke the Goodwood course record when taking out the G3 Gordon Stakes two-back, finishing 4. Charlie Appleby-trained runners have to be respected in everything over here. Comes here in outstanding form and arguably should have won his last three starts. The proven weight-for-age performers put paid to him easily but he battled on okay in the straight to finish a length clear of the early leader, and a length off Avilius. That trip was certainly short of his best and he should take great benefit from that run.
Four-back he finished a 0. His Cox Plate run should hold him in good stead for this. Cross Counter and Muntahaa round out an international first four.
