Pahang is racing at Goulburn on Friday (Race 6 at 3:25pm). The race is a BM58 over 1200m and Shaun Guymer is riding him from barrier 6. We accepted in the Class 2 over 1200m as well because he would carry less weight, but the recent form of the other horses in that race was stronger and we think the BM58 is the best option.
We have put the blinkers on him, like Shaun suggested last race, to help him focus and run straight. The plan is settle him, like last start, and have him finishing off strong.
It is always hard to step up from Maiden grade and the track is currently rated Heavy, which he is untested on. If he handles the conditions, he is an each way chance.
