Caterpillar's Murmur

60 Percent

(SAT) September 22nd, 2018

2:35 p.m. Not sure if I'm going to buy betting tickets yet, but will call All Comer anyway. My key horse is Rey De Oro. He might not win, though he has the potential to come within 3rd place even if he's merely 60 percent prepared. On the wheel would be Al Ain, Danburite, Black Bago and Air Anthem. Am being skeptical about Shonan Bach.

As for Kobe Shinbun-hai, perhaps Etario might do well though I haven't checked his training or condition. It's going to be a difficult race for Epoca d'Oro, since he will be targeted if he takes the lead. He will have to control the race in an average or faster pace.
