    Humphreys will call the entire Sunday meeting from Solvalla for Sky Racing, with Just Believe’s heat scheduled for 11.28pm AEST and the final set down for 1.45am AEST.

    It could be a late night for all of us back home

    A big night of sport on Sky and Fox Sports, I'll be watching the heat and final with the Monaco F1 Grand Prix in between.

    Luke's Form Guide

    https://www.thetrots.com.au/news/art...hreys-verdict/

    As we know, all but one are drawn inside him including the last two winners

    Even the our home TAB has him absolute outsider of the field

    You see Stockholm on the map but it isn't until you really zoom in that you understand its geography

    Just Believe's Best MR 1.55.5 converts to 1.11.8 in KmR
    These Europeans have KmR of 1.08.8
    He will do well to not be distanced on those figures

    Glad we got rid of the km rates after sticking with them for a few years. They made no sense at all.

    ...but that's not the full picture. he breezed at Menangle when second in 1.52.6 some 6m from the winner. That is significantly faster than a KmR of 1.11.8, its under 1.10 from the breeze. The banking at Solvalla makes cornering fast even though it isn't as big as Menangle, it's like a velodrome. He won't be distanced but the draw is very cruel as he needed all things going his way. Hopefully they go crazy early and he can get past half of them with an economical run and qualify for the final and draw the inside. If they don't go hard early in the heat and he's out the back it's a long trip home to Australia.

    Yes, very remiss of me TOF, I normally look for fast non wins
    1.53 is 1.10.2
    That was the run that convinced them to go - it was by far his best time
