One-way Exactas( 1-16,1-5, 1-7,1-9)..Quinellas( 1-16,1-5,5-16,1-7,1-9) Catch him if you can! Earning a big speed number(107) off his last race in Morioka, a well rested Espoir City, looks to go wire to wire this Sunday and capture the 09 Japan Cup in Hanshin. The race profiles showing dismal efforts with horses on or near the lead can be discarded along with the laser disks and VHS machines. Hashin race course , with the shorten distance, will create a different type of monster. There were indications in last years Cup which lacked any " credible" early speed which saw Kane Hekil have a winning line of 4 3 3 4 1, that fortunes would be reversed. The potential stretch runners in this years race have more negatives than positives, and the mid-pack stalker types have inconsistent speed ratings, compounded by class concerns. Throw in a couple of dark horse fliers, (#9 Mori trained Golden Ticket) and the front runner( #7 Tizaway..he might take to the track?) and we have a very unimaginative early speed wager!********************************************************************************

#4 Vermilion..Handicapping 101..horses 5yrs or older after a layoff of 3 months or more and after a win, have a huge potential to Bounce on their second time out.
# 2 Success Broken... had a good number in his race before last!.....last race?
# 12 Silk Mobius...if the pace falters, this horse is for you.
