We have two runners across Australia today – both running in stakes races.

Pakal returns to racing at Moonee Valley (R7) in the Group 2 Dato Tan Nam Chin Stakes over 1600 metres. Mick Price believes he has come back really well and is looking for a forward showing, but may knock up at the end of the race.

Comfysofa steps out in the Listed Farnley Stakes over 1400 metres at Belmont (R6). Simon Miller is very pleased with the horse. He is on track to run in the Hannan’s Handicap at Kalgoorlie at his next start.
