4. Sinner he fell too late on his Kembla debut 13 days ago and hit the line hard, running one of the fastest 200m finals of the meeting in 11.16. That race was rated high relative to the day, and the winner, the Iowna Merc, has since gone out and run well at the metropolitan level. The gelding has a tricky gate, but the genuine pace anticipated will give him a chance to push through. The extra distance is ideal, and the winks continue.
