Extreme Choice Testing Material For Oakleigh
Arguably slightly forgotten after just missing the placings in last year's Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes against a sensational field, last year's Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes hero Extreme Choice looks the logical selection for tomorrow's Gr1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caufield. Widely viewed as being tossed in at the weights, Extreme Choice only has to show the form he displayed with his last to first in the Gr1 Moir Stakes (see below) to give this a massive shake. Reported to be trialling brilliantly, the 1100m should pose no problems for the son of Arrowfield Stud's Not A Single Doubt. Flamberge ran out of his skin to just miss out in last weekend's Gr1 Lightning Stakes, while Fell Swoop, Hellbent, Sheidel and I Am A Star all have admirers. At $26 Wild Rain is a knock-out hope.
