The Prep Races

(SAT) September 24th, 2016

3:15 p.m. It's important, indeed very important to observe the prep races in order to win the autumn G1 races, boasts Cow.

Hmmm... he has a point. And I will key Curren Mirotic for All Comer. On the premise that the horse is in good condition and can go up front. Courir Kaiser's position would be of concern, though if he takes the lead, then that would be good. On the wheel would be, Satono Noblesse, Shonan Bach, Tsukuba Azumao, Gold Actor and Marialite, of course.

As for Kobe Shinbun-hai, my picks are Air Spinel, Namura Shingun, Red Eldest and Satono Diamond. Anything could happen but can't cut out Satono.
