1200m – Turf

Alpinism Won 2 over 1200m and 1400m, has also posted a second and two thirds from 8 runs since his debut in January. Showed progress when racing handy and finished a neck second at this track and trip last out. Best when racing close to the speed. No ground worries.
Cosmo Ange Two time winner over 1200m from 12 outings. Fared well when 1.25L 2nd in this class over 1200m at Sapporo in August, before flat 7th in her first run after 2-month break over 1200m at Fukushima last out. Can settle handy or race on speed.
Danon High Power Winless since March 2018. Two of his three career wins have come over 1200m. Disappointing in summer but not disgraced when 6th in 2 recent runs over 1200m and 1400m. Hold-up horse.
Fermi Sphere Lightly raced 3yo filly who has earned money in all 6 runs, including 1L 3rd in the Listed Anemone Stakes (1600m) at this track in March. Ran gamely for fourth in her first start in this class over 1400m at Tokyo latest. Dropping down to 1200m suits her. Races close to the speed. Tested on firm and good.
Granatus Winless since March 2019. Ran 5th in his first run this term but well beaten in the following 3 starts. Generally settles midfield. Has won on firm and good.
Johnny’s Lullaby Smart sprinter with 2 wins, 3 seconds and 3 thirds in 13 runs on turf. Notched his second career win over 1200m at Kyoto in May. Not a factor since being promoted to this class in 3 recent starts. Generally settles midfield but can race forward. Best on firm.
Juniper Berry Progressed to win in the 1-win class over 1200m at Fukushima in April and finished in top five in 4 recent starts between 1000m and 1400m. Never missed the board in three runs on turf at this track and trip. Settles midfield or close to speed. No ground worries.
Key Dia Finished in top 4 in all 4 runs last term. Ran 0.75L 2nd in her second up this season in August, before winning over 1200m at Sapporo two weeks later. Good effort for 4th last out, again over 1200m at Sapporo, in this class in September. Relishes to lead and can be ridden handy. Likes firm and good.
Koko Fille Best performance to date a 2.25L 4th in the 2018 G2 Keio Hai Nisai Stakes (1400m). Only placed twice in her current campaign, most recently a 3rd in a 2-win class race over 1400m at Tokyo in April, but not a factor in 2 recent starts. Best tracking handily and on firm.
Laki Consistent. Finished in top five in 10 of her 11 career runs. Two wins over 1200m and two thirds in 7 starts this term. Smart 5th effort in her first start in this class over 1200m at Sapporo in September last out. Settles midfield or behind midfield. No track concerns.
Marmalade Girl Most recent placing effort a three-quarter length at this course and distance in September 2019, lost her brilliance since. Well beaten in 4 straight starts, including 2 this term. Usually leads or races handy. All runs on firm and good.
Meiner Alchemy Smart 2nd at this track and trip in September but failed to trace the high speed, finishing only 7th last out. Races handy. Best on firm and good.
Moere Connector Won 2 dirt races at the NAR’s tracks of Funabashi and Urawa, from 5 runs last term. Re-transferred to the JRA circuit for turf racing early this year, having won in his 6th start last time in a 1-win class race over 1200m at Fukushima. Settles midfield or deep on turf. Tested only on firm going.
Rino World Has not tasted any success since August 2018. Decent 4th in a 2-win class race over 1200m at Niigata two starts back. Below par finish at this trip and track last out. Runs close to speed. Handles softer track.
Voluspa Consistent sprinter at this track and trip. Finished in top five in all 3 starts over 1200m at Nakayama this term. Generally settles better than midfield. Best on firm and good.
Yamanin Belinda Notched her long awaited second career victory over 1000m at Niigata in August. Not shown any competitiveness in 3 recent starts in this class. Versatile but generally settles handy. Best on firm but also handles soft going.
