Race 1 - 12:25PM WIDDEN KINDERGARTEN STAKES (1100m)

1. Espionage would have been a live chance in the Golden Slipper had he made the field. That was on the back of a luckless fifth in the Todman Stakes. Prior to that he took late ground off Straight Charge in the Silver Slipper over 1100m on a wet track. On debut, he won the Breeders Plate. His depth of form is far superior to anything else in the race. Having missed a run, he's been back to the trials where he was made to win his heat at Warwick Farm against older horses. Originally he was being set for the Sires' but this race looks perfect as a consolation for what has so far been a forgettable carnival. Nothing much has gone right for the Zoustar colt. Should tag the speed and there is plenty of it. Justifiably a short-priced favourite.
