Rail: True entire course.
Track: Good 3.
Factors: Horses for courses in the Lough Neagh. Doomben: Phelan Ready - 0-5, 1350m - 0/3. Startsmeup 13sts-5-1-3, 1350m 5/7. Larry Cassidy great value at $3.60 in jockey challenge.
Big drop in class for Purfectress can improve after disappointing ls effort, value. Endless Shadow in peak form, looks
the one to beat again. Telesto Warrior ran nice race latest.
Numbers: 6ew, 3, 5, 9.
Forgive run for Excellent Al last start, up 4kgs so weight a worry, but sure to be in the mix. Mishani Stealth is
super consistent and looks the main danger.
Numbers: 1/2, 9, 3.
Dodging Eddie got too far back last start, blinkers back on today should be closer. Dolly dolly racing well, nicely weighted
with claim. Anagold had all the favours from rails draw latest, tougher here and drawn out. Rhetoric doesn’t win
many, but gets the gun run and racing well. No big wrap for Sam’s Town fitter for latest distance run.
Numbers: 13, 6, 2, 5.
There was a lot to like about Greytfilly’s debut win and should be very hard to beat again. Real Surreal also won well on debut and given easy conditioning trial since.
Numbers: 4, 5, 1, 12.
Brookton Tiara chases hat-trick, this harder than midweek grade. Thirsty For Blood is super consistent, nice alley.
Delago Pili also steps up from midweek company, but was eye-catching win latest and rise to 1350m will suit. Whitesails down in weight, but no value, should be double figure odds.
Numbers: 3ewx, 10, 2, 13.
If Azzaland is right he will be winning this, but eight-years-old now and stack of weight even with the claim makes him
a risk. Thefifthhole won well first-up and is well in on the minimum. G’day Old Mate ran well latest, but rarely fires at
Numbers: 9, 2, 3, 1.
Can Phelan ready break the drought? He is short but for mine he is a huge risk. Big weight, out of the money in five
starts looking elsewhere for the winner. Hard to go past Startsmeup 5 from 7 this track and distance. Morning Captain sure to be in the mix.
Numbers: 2, 5, 1, 6.
I’m Cool drawn to box seat again, up 3.5kgs which can have a bearing. Longshoreman rattled home for good win latest at Eagle Farm, will get back again and it will be tougher to repeat at this track. Spinhro no luck when forced back ls, was super effort and will be hard to beat with luck from gate. Around The World, Solebid, Royal Shout also chances in tough finish to the quadi.
Numbers: 9, 14, 3, 8.
