Polytrack no hassle for top two contenders at Fairview

GAVIN SMITH

Jack Milner: The decision to move Friday’s Fairview race meeting from the turf to the Polytrack should not have much impact on the two strongly fancied runners – Global Drummer and World Radar.

The change was made on Thursday due to heavy overnight rain and further rain during the course of the morning with it forecast to continue through to lunchtime Friday.

In view of this move please note that Race 1, a Work Riders Maiden Plate, will no longer be

a Work Riders’ race. The race will now be run with professional Jockeys.

All race distances, barring Race 6, remain unchanged. Race 6 will now be run over 1300m.

Global Drummer and World Radar are carded to line up in Race 7, a Pinnacle Stakes, over 1200m, and as both are unbeaten in two starts on the Polytrack, neither trainer Gavin Smith nor Alan Greeff will be lodging too many objections to the move.

While Greeff-trained World Radar holds the edge based on merit ratings, Greeff’s charge has finished unplaced in two of her three starts this year so has been a little disappointing.

Global Drummer, however, continues to improve, but might prefer a little further these days so that could level the playing fields a little.

World Radar probably needed her last start when only sixth behind stable companion Carioca and she is sure to improve on that performance.

Smith, after a while in the doldrums, has his stable in top form again and has reeled off three good wins with Global Drummer. Those three wins came after a couple of below par defeats behind rival Sullenberger and the disappointing-since-then Tiger In The Sun.

There are others who could threaten, such as Sullenberger, while Fly My Flag will appreciate the move to Polytrack.
