Rail Position: Out 2m Entire Course. Track Condition: Good 3
Factors: Small fields, apart from the two-year-old races and plenty of shorties make for a tricky program. Apprentice Tegan Harrison ($5.75) should give Rosie Myers a run for her money in the jockey’s challenge.
Race 1: Two-year-old fillies on show here, most for the first time. Angie’s Diary won on debut in Twba, but this harder. Global Dream trialled well at Doomben and Grandkids Rock was impressive Gold Coast trial winner.
Nuimbers: 5, 4, 6, 1.
Race 2: Whiskey Allround bolted in in Twba on debut. Sure to find it a lot harder here, but strength of win indicates he is smart. I liked the trial of Mishani Gladiator at Doomben, showed speed and ran to the line strong. Handled also looks an early prospect on his trial form.
Numbers: 9, 1, 6, 12.
Race 3: Race in two. Not sold that Grey Assignment is right at home over 2200m, but the quality of opposition is poor. Attica and the grey should fight it out, but no value.
Race 4: Platinum State should get the gun run again and will be hard to run down. There is little doubt Mick Cahill on Reflectance will track the topweight and can wear him down in the straight. Grayson Square should be suited this track.
Numbers: 2x, 1, 3.
Race 5: Danagaze found the 1800m too far latest, can improve here back to the mile. Marked ran well first-up, fitter will be running on. Onetimeatbandcamp is consistent, always a chance in this type of race. Rockdale will give a great sight here, likes this track, down in weight, super fit. Hour of Peril on 7-day back-up, in the mix, but needs solid tempo.
Numbers: 6ew, 7, 3, 5.
Race 6: Fillydelphia class runner of the field, trialled strongly and although burdened with plenty of weight can beat these if right. Whateverwhenever and Jet Style, who is on 7-day back-up, won well last start and if there is a chink in topweight’s armour they might fight it out.
Numbers: 1, 5, 7, 4.
Race 7: Koranovsky should be nearing her peak, ran well latest and will race handy. Hidden Kisses took ages to wind-up last start, but got to the line well without threatening, under the big weight she might struggle. Cuddlesome has worked her way through the classes, open company here and up to the mile, no value at the short odds. Sea Marvista carries no weight and is a rough hope.
Numbers: 4ew, 5, 1.
Race 8: Hampden nice horse, steps up from 1000m might feel the pinch late. Leave me out of the short odds Empress Me. She can win, but mare very hot day, second up, too many ifs for mine. Bribie extremely fit, honest without winning many. Gunner Knox went well first-up and has good second-up record and is drawn to get a good run.
Numbers: 7, 4, 9, 5.
Race 9: Jabiru Dreaming was outclassed last start, he drops right back in grade here and with the claim should be too good for these. Rapid Leica Dane carries no weight after the claim and is in the mix. Reassemble ran a nice race last start and will be improved. Ticket To Dream resumes and might be best to monitor betting moves, same applies to Hussonator.
Numbers: 2x, 5, 6, 11.
