The question is can Hot Snitzel cause a minor surprise and take the scalp of one of the best juveniles we have seen in years.
Sepoy and Hot Snitzel met once in the Group 1 Golden Slipper in April.
While Sepoy was seen at his best, not so Hot Snitzel who settled further back in the field than usual, hung out during the race and failed to run on.
It was about the worst run Hot Snitzel has produced having been unplaced just twice in ten starts.
Now the return bout is on.
Hot Snitzel has an impressive turn of foot and when well ridden can use it to devastating effect.
He is a Flemington straight unknown, some horses love it but others despise it – that is the chance a punter will need to take with the gelding in the 2011 Coolmore Stud Stakes.
Where Hot Snitzel has an unblemished record is on slow ground and if the Flemington track deteriorates due to rain it could play into Hot Snitzel’s favour.
He gets Sepoy at the end of a long preparation and for most that horse will be too short to wager.
Hot Snitzel is well worth an eachway ticket.
