G1 – 1200m – Turf

1 T M Spada The light weight and track condition brought her the first group win in JRA record time in a G3 (1200m) in July. Versatile groundwise. 
2 Gendarme G3 winner at the course and distance earlier this season.  Well beaten last out.  More progress needed in this stronger company.
3 Meisho Mimosa The G2 Hanshin Himba Stakes (1600m) winner in April. No match for the winners in the last 3 starts.  More progress needed.
4 Diatonic His eight wins include a thriller at G3 earlier this term but disappointing finishes in the last two runs at G1.
5 Eighteen Girl Finished 2L 8th over the rain affected track in the G1 Takamatsunomiya Kinen (1200m) in March.  Likes the slow track.
6 Naran Huleg Finished strongly and registered the first group victory in the G1 Takamatsunomiya Kinen (1200m) in March. Did not suit the 1600m when 9th in the G1 Yasuda Kinen last out. 
7 Win Marvel Proved his first group race win in the G3 Aoi Stakes (1200m) with 126lb was not a fluke when good 2nd in the G3 Keeneland Cup (1200m) last out.  Worth a wager.
8 First Force Finished out of frame in the first four runs this term but showed big progress and finished good 2nd in the G2 Centaur Stakes (1200m) latest.  No track worries. 
9 Namura Clair Never failed to finish on board from 1200m to 1600m.  Consistent.  2.5L win at G3 in June and smart 3rd in a 1200m G3 latest.  Chance.
10 Taisei Vision Showed upward curve lately, placing second in last three starts over the distance.  Comes from behind with a late burst.
11 Travesura Good 2nd on his return from 9-and-half-month break in the G3 Hankyu Hai (1400m) in February. Rallied in the G1 Takamatsunomiya Kinen (1200m) but weakened and placed 4th last out.  Good chance.
12 Vento Voce A five-time winner at the distance.  Stormed home for his first group race success in the G3 Keeneland Cup (1200m) last out. 
13 Meikei Yell Six-time winner in group races. Won the G2 Centaur Stakes in record time over 1200m last time out.  Showed lot of improvement in her “overexcited” temperamental issue recently.
14 Loving Answer Good preparation run with a good turn of foot in the G2 Centaur Stakes (1200m) when 9th last out.  Back in top form.  The 1200m at this course should suit nicely.
15 Schnell Meister First run over 1200m. Very solid efforts over 1600m including winning the G1 NHK Mile Cup, second in the G1 Mile Championship and the G1 Yasuda Kinen. Rested well for this target.
16 Maria’s Heart A winner at open class this term.  Finished 7th in the G3 Ibis Summer Dash (1000m) last out.  Hold-up runner.
