BEST BET – Race 4, No1 ECHO PRINCE
NEXT BEST – Race 1, No4 DEMERARA
BEST ROUGHIE – Race 2, No8 ECHO QUEEN
Race 1 1:00pm BLUE GUM FOREST 2YO MAIDEN HANDICAP 900m
DEMERARA (NEXT BEST) has trialled up quite well leading into this race. She looks as if she would be an early runner in the trial and with all the 2yo races that are on over the weekend Godolphin have chosen this. She should jump, run and out-speed them here.
SELECTIONS: No 4 DEMERARA, No 7 Sheikha, No 6 Sebring Express, No 5 Pricing Power.
VALUE RUNNER: No 6 Sebring Express.
Race 2 1:35pm WORONORA DAM MAIDEN PLATE 1300m
ECHO QUEEN (BEST ROUGHIE) resumes here after a costly preparation for punters where she started short SPs in most runs. She has trialled well and should be hard to beat.
KRUSTY comes out of some really nice races in his first racing prep. He has trialled up well and should be in the finish.
NONPAREIL finds as weak a race as she has run in, in a long while but is becoming way too costly for punters. She is a chance but I won’t be on her.
CARAHA has trialled well enough leading into this and the start of 1300m looks suitable.
SELECTIONS: No 8 ECHO QUEEN, No 3 Krusty, No 11 Nonpareil, No 7 Caraha.
VALUE RUNNER: No 8 Echo Queen.
Race 3 2:10pm GARDINERS CREEK PROV & CTRY MAIDEN HANDICAP 1300m
ECHO PRINCE (BEST BET) was good first-up in a much better race than this. They ran a good time that night and he looked as if he would improve for the run. He has a good second-up record and is the one that they need to beat.
SELECTIONS: No 1 ECHO PRINCE, No 5 Kravchenko, No 3 Fat Chap, No 9 Rolston.
VALUE RUNNER: No 3 Fat Chap.
CANNOT BE SERIOS has been good in two career runs to date. Getting out to 1400m suits and he will be hard to beat.
COYS finally broke through last start after a long run of outs. She really wanted to win that day and it was well deserved. I can’t see 1400m being any issues.
ARIGOLD profiles well second up here. Getting out to 1400m suits as he really hit the line well. He is a previous second-up winner and is weighted well after the claim.
TYCOON FLUTTER comes out of that same race last start and was quite good. He meets Arigold 1kg worse off at the weights though.
SELECTIONS: No 6 CANNOT BE SERIOS, No 5 Coys, No 1 Arigold, No 4 Tycoon Flutter.
VALUE RUNNER: No 4 Tycoon Flutter.
Race 7 4:33pm STOCKYARD CREEK METRO & PROV MAIDEN HANDICAP 1500m
