Race 1 - 11:25AM MIDWAY HANDICAP (1400m)

1. Elettrica was devastating when winning at Rosehill on Golden Slipper day four weeks ago. The five-year-old finally drew a soft gate and she took full advantage. Once the five-year-old angled into the clear, having settled fifth on the fence, it was all over. Times and margins. She put 3.5 lengths on her Midway rivals at the finish. The trade off for the dominance of that win is a jump in her rating. That sees her carry 61kg, even after the claim of Angus Villers. That's a hefty weight in another competitive Midway, especially given her diminutive size. However, she is a proven weight carrier. In her first run in Australia she ran a narrow second at Warwick Farm with 62.5kg on her back. Also has to cope with a drop back to 1400m. There are negatives but on the back of a career-best win, she might just prove her that she is simply better than this grade.
