UNBEATEN KATAK has had his merit rating increased from 99 to 109 after he recorded a fourth win from as many appearances in the Grade 3 Abe Bloomberg Legal Eagle Stakes (formerly known as the Winter Classic) for three-year-olds over the Kenilworth winter course 1800m on Tuesday 7 July.

The Handicappers were of the view that 3rd placed SILVER HOST made for the most suitable line horse.  Accordingly, his rating remains unaltered on 102, but runner-up SUPER SILVANO goes up from 102 to 105.  In other increases, 4th placed BAYBERRY (who sported blinkers for the first time) goes up from 81 to 95, while 5th placed CAPTAIN FLINDERS was raised from 85 to 93.

The only drop was for CANE LIME ‘N SODA, who is down from 94 to 92.
