Rail Position: True Entire Course Track Condition: Dead 5 Track Type: Turf Weather: Fine
Factors: Apprentices hold a key hand on many of the main chances. On an improved racing surface for many runners form reversals are on the cards.
Race 1: Don’t blow your bank here. Ordinary lot, From London is consistent placegetter. Dusty Gold is overdue, but costly for punters in the past. Waranga is rarely far away and nice odds.
Numbers: 5, 10, 3, 6.
Race 2: Another tough race without a lot of quality. Daad’s Overtime and Rambling On coming off provincial wins, but at least they’re in form. Eureka Jack has been close up last two runs and gets his chance here. Loves A Challenge and Contract Caterer can improve.
Numbers: 6, 4, 2, 1.
Race 3: Patinack duo Headless and Lita have solid credentials. Headless has strong Sydney form, 2kg claim and raced well behind a smart one in Doubtfilly before a break. Harlequin’s Gold on pacer and one alley a big plus. Wrap for Parsnips and money pre-post to say she can race well. Congo should be running on.
Numbers: 6, 5, 7, 2.
Race 4: War charm fitter for first-up run, can improve. Two very impressive last start winners Gypsy Pearl and I’m Cool face step up in grade here. There will be a lot of speed early and expect Gypsy Pearl to get the gun run. Divine City should have won last start, couple of things against here, up in weight and drops from 1350m to 1200m in 7-days. She is smart and with expected hot tempo she should be running on. Top Of The Rock good effort last start and suited by good tempo.
Numbers: 3, 11, 10, 1.
Race 5: Bradbury Chocolate was super win last start. On that effort nothing here will trouble him.
Numbers: 1x, 6, 2, 10.
Race 6: Zamboni is racing in peak form, up in grade but drops 3kg on last win. Mossriver turned in good effort last start and races well this track, she looks nicely placed here. Norocos is honest, alley a concern. Magic Tartan should be close to peak and better racing surface will suit here. Product did not handle heavy last start.
Numbers: 2, 1, 9, 12.
Race 7: Very tough race. Tacker ran on for solid win last start, extra distance in his favour. Little Brown Horse in well with claim and form solid. Miss Orielle always promised and delivered latest, in the mix again. Primary Colour and Modern Al resume and have decent first-up records. Magic Shuffle might go better on this surface.
Numbers: 9, 3, 4, 10.
Race 8: Prost ran well in Ramornie, looks one of the main chances here. Youthful Jack backs up after solid effort in Sydney last week. Signified won well last two starts, but faces a class rise here. Brigadoon Jack rarely runs a bad race and carries featherweight here. Bold Glance ran much improved race last start, the one to beat if right.
Numbers: 6, 2, 10, 9.
Race 9: Claim brings Requested in nicely. Golden Cash ran great race first-up from a long break, fitter now and has good second-up record. Taken was beaten favourite SC when resuming and not disgraced, can improve. Shafeeq won well latest, good hope again. Snip n Duck resumes and races well fresh.
Numbers: 9, 4, 6 , 7.
