1800m – Turf

Fidelio Green Moving up in class after surprise win following poor showings in previous 7 starts. Back after 2 months off. Looking bit heavy still in work. Not promising.
Gullfaxi Mare has done poorly in three starts since moving to this class after win over 1800m. Could improve if calm. First time racing to right. Likely not a contender.
Human Comedy Filly raced primarily over 2000m and up with 11-5 since moving to this class. Showed promise last out on 5 September. Will have weight advantage at only 115lbs. Could surprise.
Kitano Impact Raced primarily at 2000m with only 2 of 10 starts out of the money. Has two seconds at this distance. Untested over heavier ground. Proven at Nakayama. First start since early August but looking good in work. Highly competitive.
Meiner Solace Gold Ship colt raced primarily over 2000m returning from 10-month spell. Posted 5-5-5 at end 2020 at this level. Looks to be in good condition. Good surprise with right trip.
Narino Montagne Class colt coming off a win over Nakayama 2000m on 18 September. Has made board in all 7 starts this year, with 4 in money. Can run on any going, from any position. Good late speed. Promising.
R Baron Maurice colt has 2 wins over Nakayama 1800m, including last out on 11 September. Excellent speed. Maintaining condition. Assigned weight 2lbs less than lightest to date. Promising.
Red Kugel Raced in 2000-2500m range this year for 6-6-7-5. One gear but persistent. Heavy last out after 3 months off. Improvement expected. Could make money.
Stella d’Oro Orfevre filly has made board in 4 of 6 starts this year, all in 1800-2000m range. Finished 3.8 lengths off winner over Nakayama 1800m on 12 September, following 4-month spell. Improvement likely. Worth a wager.
Suzukano Rosso Has posted 1-3-8 this year in 1800-2000m range. Chronically late at break but versatile if quickly away. Good late speed. Has chance.
Ushba Tesoro Big Orfevre colt raced predominately at 2000m and up is 2-3-1 this year. Races from far off pace and has yet to win at Nakayama in 7 bids. Looking average in work. Drop in distance not a help.
Variamente Colt with only 5 career starts and only one finish out of money is racing for first time in 3 months. Finished very close third last out, over Hanshin 1800m at this level. Competitive but power a bit lacking in trackwork. Room for doubt.
