True Motion was fourth this morning, in a race that really didn't go her way. Tanabe-san says she's capable of winning, but the dash from the gate was slightly off (meaning those outside her had to be let go), and to avoid the sand being kicked up in her face, a deliberately wide line was taken, which possibly also cost precious split-seconds. If everything fell in the right place at the right time, I have no doubt she'd be finishing further up the field, for she's finished fourth three times in her six races - it's fair to say that her 0-0-0-6 record really doesn't do her justice. But the cold, hard figures are there for reference, and they don't lie...
