Last Best Chance for the Macho Man to Get Illusive Grade 1 Score

The signature event for the Spa's final weekend is today's Grade 1 Woodward Stakes where Mucho Macho Man (4-1) is well positioned to make amends for last year's narrow defeat.

Five-year-old loomed a winner at head-stretch only to finish one-paced, as if short of condition. With that under his belt, outside position to suit his stalking style, and two purposeful recent works, he will attempt his winning run as the group approaches to quarter pole.
