1200m – Turf

Admire Delight
5-year-old being tried first time at 1200m on turf. First raced longer distance on flat, then moved to jumps. Only 1 win in 21 starts. First flat race in over a year. Could surprise.
5-year-old with 5 races finishing in the top three spots, all but one over dirt. Best at this level a 2nd in Fukushima 1200m. Ran 9th last out over 1200m following 2-month layoff. Not promising.
Brightia Lady
5-year-old mare with new trainer Koshiro Take for first start. First race in over 4 months. Good late speed. Could surprise.
Deep Adorare
4-year-old filly has not finished in first three places since moving up in class. Looks to be outclassed.
Mambo Sky
Initially raced in 1800-2600m range on JRA circuit returning from 2 wins over mile on dirt on NAR circuit. Now being raced over 1200m for the first time over turf. Could surprise.
Meisho Maikaze
5-year-old mare with only 5 finishes in the top three in 26 outings. Won debut over 1200m turf, then took on two open-class races and finished last in both. Ever since has run on dirt nearly exclusively at 1200m and from far off pace. First run on turf since November 2015. Longshot.
Meisho Tokin
5-year-old gelding has been tried over dirt and turf intermittently without success since breaking maiden in March 2016. Not promising.

Suave Arthur
Stepping down in class after 4 starts. First time over 1200m after posting 4th and 5th in last 2 starts, both over mile. Runs close to pace and has experience at Hanshin, albeit over 2000m or longer. Could surprise.
T S Bara
9 finishes in top three in 36 starts primarily over 1200m. Finished out of the top three from end of 2015, but looking good from this year with a 2nd and 3rd over 1200m. Chance.
