3.25 Gowran Park – Coko Beach (e/w) – WON 8/1

Making his handicap debut over fences, he looks to potentially be on a nice mark with a rating of 138, and should appreciate the test of stamina. A decent handicap hurdler, he ran well in the Coral Cup at The Festival from a rating of 145, where he’d have finished a fair bit closer but for being hampered 2 out. Since switching to fences, he’s looked a very sound jumper and shown plenty of promise behind in novice events, including when 2nd to Pencilfulloflead, a subsequent graded winner. A very competitive race, but Coko beach looks to hold strong claims and is sure to prove himself better than his current handicap mark.
