DAY RACING HORSES TO FOLLOW: Caulfield: 04-02-2017

Racing was back to the punters favourite surface at Caulfield last weekend. The track played typically fairly, being upgraded to a good 3 during the day’s racing. The inside couple of lanes produced plenty of winners, however rather than du to a bias many results were tempo dictated.

Despite some impressive wins, it was hard to pin point many horses to follow from Caufield week. However there were a few at good odds that I believe have wins in them this preparation away from the limelight of carnival racing.

MISS GIDGET: After a fairly torrid run in transit the Gauch got the best out of this mare in the straight, clocking a 33.84s last 600m out in what was probably the lesser part of the track.

Beginning around 1 length tardy out of the barriers she settled back some 8 lengths off the lead in 11th. Then she was bumped/hampered for room by turbo miss when turning into the straight forcing her to the un-favourable middle of the track.

Despite all this, she still ran on for 5th, only 2.5L off the eventual winner. Being only a BM67, she is eligible for easier grade and would certainly figure in the finish in this grade against her own sex.

Record: 19:2-2-3


Where to next? 1200m F&M BM70

ADIRONDACK: After being very easy in the betting: $10-$17 this 6 year old produced a solid grinding finish for 3rd. Settling down 6th in running for D.Dunn he was asked the question quite early, being under some riding before the bend. Seemingly taking an age to wind up he clocked some solid late sectionals once he got going: 33.97s last 600m, 11.50s last 200m.

The Lohnro gelding was first up after no public trials or jump out so it is natural to think he’ll improve second up and seems to be ready for a step up in distance to 1600m+, having won over 2000m previously.

Record: 31:7-2-6


Where to next? 1600m BM85-Open Class Handicap
