  • travel_vic · Hansen has not shown any maturation from his front running style......Side Road has shown the maturity it takes, but at 8.5 furlongs on the inner that might not be enough to catch him · 859 days ago ·

Well, I took Raconteur in the Derby Pool 1. Let's hope we've seen something others aren't on to yet. LOL
