15) SECOND BASE

 

SECOND BASE was an impressive winner of the Grade 2 Colorado King Stakes over 2000m at Turffontein toward the end of March 2022. He was disappointing in his subsequent runs, finishing 13 lengths off Astrix in the Premier’s Champions Challenge and just under five lengths back from Puerto Manzano in the WSB Jubilee Stakes. He will need to step up massively to compete at the right end of the pack on Saturday
