Wednesday racing from Warwick Farm, this is a big comedown after the weekend and we have dreary weather on the lookout. The rail is true and the track will stay in the heavy range.
QUADDIES (Races 5-6-7-8)
Skinny: 7,8 – 2,7,9 – 1,7 – 8,15
Wide: 7,8,9 – 2,7,9,10 – 1,3,7 - 8,13,15,16
Best Bet: R3 N1 EGG TART
Next Best Bet: R7 N7 IN TIMES OF WAR
Best Roughie: R5 N7 BRIGADOON RISE
NO 6 DEVOLVING Found the line well on the debut, the step up to 1300m now looks as if it won’t pose any issues.
NO 9 POPULAR Has had a good grounding with four trials coming into this. The ground shouldn’t be an issue.
NO 2 ATARAXIA Backs up quickly and gets the blinkers for the first time. From gate one he should roll forward.
NO 3 KOOKABAA Solid enough on debut, did some work between the 800m and 400m and that told late.
VALUE RUNNER: NO 2 ATARAXIA
NO 10 VANZETTA Closed off well enough last start, the step up to 1600m and the quick backup all suit.
NO 6 SHAOLIN KUNGFU Closed off well enough fresh, he backs up quickly here and gets Bowman.
NO 4 RAISE AN ARMY Placed in six of ten runs so far, but not sure if he wants to win? Maybe he needs gelding / environment change? But I don’t doubt his ability.
NO 1 FAVOURITE UNCLE Gets to the mile here and it looks to suit.
VALUE RUNNER: NO 6 SHAOLIN KUNGFU
NO 1 EGG TART (BEST BET) Big win when resuming at Newcastle, came from well off the speed and chased them down in quick time. Senior jockey (Bowman) gets aboard here and he can only improve off that.
NO 3 SUBMISSIVE Caught in the wrong part of the track last start and it told late, she can improve here.
NO 6 NAUGHTY THOUGHTS Jumped out of the ground last start and didn’t have a lot of luck there. Quick back up suits.
NO 7 KAWAIKINI Ran on well in fast time last start, back to her home track gives her a chance.
VALUE RUNNER: NO 3 SUBMISSIVE
NO 3 DIVINE SANCTION Ready to win now after some tough runs this time in. She drops 4.5kgs for that and has her chance.
NO 5 MORE ENERGY Good effort in the Albury cup when not in the best part of the track. Back at home to 2200m suits.
NO 6 NO RETURN Will run his usual trustworthy run and give his backers a good run for their money.
NO 10 LOOKIN’ AT YOU Won well at Goulburn in wet going last start, he can go on with it.
VALUE RUNNER: NO 5 MORE ENERGY
NO 7 BRIGADOON RISE (BEST ROUGHIE) Second-up to 1400m suits perfectly here, she will hope that the track dries out a little though.
NO 8 CHANDANA Trialled in good fashion between runs, this is her chance to win a race.
NO 9 COUNTESS MARINOV Drops well in grade after a good run last start, wet going not an issue.
NO 3 COTTAGE Had a good trial after the fresh failure, she looks back on track.
VALUE RUNNER: NO 7 BRIGADOON RISE
NO 7 NOTHING BOX Gets the senior on board here after having not much luck last week. He should be able to dictate here.
NO 2 EXOTERIC Comes here off the back of three wins in England and turns up gelded and having no trials coming in. Big Watch.
NO 9 LE CAVALIER Found the line well at Albury last start with the big weight. Wet track no issue.
NO 10 OCTAVIAN AUGUSTUS Won well with the big weight at Newcastle, that could be the turning point for him and give him the confidence.
VALUE RUNNER: NO 9 LE CAVALIER
NO 7 IN TIMES OF WAR (NEXT BEST BET) Trialing in brilliant fashion leading into a fresh run. His form from his first prep has been nothing short of brilliant and he looks well set up for a win here.
NO 1 MEDLYN Big win on debut, big step up here and the apprentice has been booked to claim down.
NO 3 POUND STERLING Comes out of some good form races last preparation and has trialled well enough coming into this.
NO 11 THORN IN MY SIDE Has trialled well enough coming into this to run well fresh.
VALUE RUNNER: NO 3 POUND STIRLING
NO 15 EL SID Has really good form around him and has trialled up well enough coming into this and is freshly gelded.
NO 8 RILLITO Hot form around him and has trialled up well enough coming in. He runs his best races fresh.
NO 13 ULTIMA CHANCE Drops 9.5kgs off his last run and has a really good wet track record and will be over the odds.
NO 16 LAY DOWN THE LAW Out and out wet tracker and gets condition to suit here yet again. From barrier 1 he gets a dream run.
VALUE RUNNER: NO 8 RILLITO
