Tokyo City Keiba Race 9

Tokyo City Keiba A

Prize Money: $124,404

LOWELL (2) returns after a spell of five months. Looking to emulate his win at this track at the beginning of last prep. Looks a winning chance. FUJIKOCHAN (6) turned things around last start and got the job done by 1.3 lengths after being in contention on the corner over 1200m at this track. Goes up a rung or two but she is capable of another big run. BOILER HOUSE (5) fought on for third last start over 1600m at this track, making it two minor placings in a row. Finds a suitable race and can play a major role. STAR SHOOTER (3) resumes today after closing off last preparation with four consecutive wins, the latest over 1200m at this track on January 26 2023. Should park just off the speed. Can feature in the finish.

Useful filly. Most recently tracked the speed and boxed on steadily; won by 1.3 len at this track June 27 over 1200m defeating It's So Rad with 55kg at $7.60. The run before that 9th of 16 at this track on June 6 over 1400m, 4 len behind Johnson Tesoro with 55kg at $32.60. Can get the job done again.
