1800m – Turf

Best Queen Has failed to make top three in nearly 2 years despite different distances, surfaces. Hauling from Ritto. Likely not a contender.
Cool Water Returning after 15 months off. Has gotten regular work and is looking fit. Best results have come over left-handed tracks, but has chance here.
Fidelio Green Last out in late July finished third over Fukushima 1800m. Previous runs at Nakayama have brought poor results. Not promising.
Go Go Yutaka Only 2 finishes out of money in 7 career starts. Back from layoff on 11 September, finished only 3L off winner over Nakayama 1800m. Well primed.
Kalandula Recent starts brought 9-3-5, all over 1800m, with best results to the left. Good speed, versatile, but one gear. Needs strong pace. Coming off layoff, but has done well before. Promising.
Kern Kingdom Unpredictable with only 10 finishes in top 3 from 32 starts. Still somewhat competitive this year. First time at Nakayama, first start in 3 months. Longshot.
Mythologie Has failed to win over last 15 starts but posted five finishes in top three. Was second over Nakayama 1800m on 11 September. Definitely worth a wager.
Pod Wein Moving up in class after good performance over Sapporo 1800m in early September. Prior Nakayama results 5-8-5-6, all over 2000-2200m. Has ample chance.
Red Lammert Consistent colt from Kunieda stable rising in class after second win, over Sapporo 1800m in late August. Finished out of top 3 only twice in 8 career starts. Has 7-2 at Nakayama over 2000m, but 1800m looks a better fit. Very promising.
Scenariste Returned after 7 months for 4th over Fukushima 1800m in late July. Started well but hampered by shifty ground. Is 1-4-5 at Nakayama, all at 2000m.
Swear Moved to turf and won over Nakayama 2000m at year end. 8-6-11 this year, all over 2000-2200m. Difficult temperament. Not promising.
Transylvania Moving up in class after win over Fukushima 1800m in July.
Yamanin Galassia Most of career over 1200-1400m with some success. Given a mile, then 1800m at Nakayama on 11 September. Finished close fourth. New possibilities may be on horizon.
Yamanin Preciosa Has failed to make top three in last 8 starts. Was given 1800m at Fukushima last out, but no improvement. Not promising.
