2020 Coolmore Legacy Stakes Best Bet - Funstar

Funstar is well placed coming back to 1600m after finishing fourth over 2000m in the Vinery Stud Stakes on 28 March. This Chris Waller-trained filly was a short priced favourite on that occasion but the slowly run race took away her dash over the trip.
Funstar can emulate recent three-year-old winners of the Coolmore Legacy Stakes  in Alizee (2018) and Foxplay (2017). Funstar is superior than both those horses at the same stage of their careers and can bounce back.

2020 Coolmore Legacy Stakes Value Bet - Amangiri

Team Hawkes should have Amangiri ready to go for her likely grand final target. This four-year-old has a high cruising speed and is able to sustain a strong gallop.
Whilst lacking the dash to go with Positive Peace first-up over 1500m in the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes on 28 March, she battled on well and won a Rosehill trial by 6 lengths in her previous outing.

With improvement likely off the Emancipation Stakes, Amangiri should give a good sight in the Coolmore Legacy Stakes with Brenton Avdulla on board.
