Just having a quick final reread through this thread before closing the chapter and getting on board the Sonnyboyliston train for 2022 ....not a bad top 3 prediction above. Fair play!POWER RANKINS - FINAL FRONTIER
Last set of Power Rankings before the final field is sorted next Saturday.
#1 INCENTIVISE (Last week #1, betfair $2.84) - Just a complete and utter stone bonking moral if it stays the trip - no need to look anwyhere else
#2 VERRY ELLEEGANT (#2, $18.5) - No surprised to see her challenging for third fave off a slashing Cox Plate run that suggested she is looking for further - probably needs a career best to win with the weight which looks unlikely but can easily place in the worst edition for 20 years
#3 SPANISH MISSION (#3, $7.80) - Maybe the only one left standing if the fave doesn't stay but is rock bottom for the kind of 3200/4000+ plugger that generally run well but struggle to win
#4 TWILIGHT PAYMENT (#4, $20) - Joseph may be the only trainer on earth capable of getting a 9yo to win a Melbourne Cup off top weight but surely even this miracle proves a bridge too far
#5 PERSAN (#5, $36) - 5th last year and placed in a Caulfield Cup. Can run top 5 again - cant win
#6 GRAND PROMENDAE (#6, $15.50) - Was obvious his dominant winter wins were more than good enough to see him right in this given Brisbane staying form was being talked up. Well done if you took the $60s then - he is utter poison at his current quote though
#7 SIR LUCAN (#10, $75) - Surely not!?! $140 into $75 on the fair this week and the attrition is through the roof! Jumps to clear #3 seed if he gets a run.
#8 DELPHI (u/r, $55) - Now that he is pressing on he goes back in as an outside chance but needs to turn around a horrendous CC run - at least you'll get a price this time
#9 AWAY HE GOES (#8, 18.5) - Absolute poison odds given he was flogged in the Slowbor but the locals are that bad he can run top 10.
#10 TRALEE ROSE (u/r, $18.5) - Nice Geelong Cup win but horrific unders given she was beaten out of sight in an Adelaide Cup - hard to see her turning the tables on Grand Promenade from the Bart Cummings either
