2022 Feehan Stakes Horse Ratings by Race
1: Mr. Brightside: I got out of Earlswood very comfortably and indeed, the race was over after 100m. A great performance, albeit against small opposition, but he now gets a Cox Plate berth and is definitely heading in the right direction.
2: Inspirational Girl: Nicely driven and clean in the corner. I just went away flat-footed but got up late and was good over the line. A sure pass with an eye towards the Caulfield Cup but was still very easily held.
3: Spanish Mission: He was 1/1 and went easy on the run. He just doesn’t have the sprint in his legs, but he stuck to the task quite well, with the Melbourne Cup his main focus. He is well on his way.
4: Sound: As expected he was last in the run and flat footed but I didn’t really mind as he got up late and was good on and over the line. Have a grade for sure.
5: Earlswood: Jury is out. He got into a slight lead but once Mr Brightside turned on the pressure he flew the white flag fairly quickly and it was a very poor comeback. It will only get harder.
