Kembla Grange for their usual Tuesday provincial meetings. Seven races on the card here with an intriguing maiden to start the day in race one. The rail is in the true position and we will be on a good track to start the day.
QUADDIES (races 4-5-6-7)
Skinny Play: 4,6,9 – 2,4 – 1,2 – 3,9
Wide Play: 3,4,6,9 – 2,4,5,8 – 1,2,4,7 – 3,5,6,9
BEST BET: R2 – 2. FABRICATOR
Next Best Bet: R1 – 6. SHIELD WALL
Best Roughie: R4 – 4. IRISH SUCCESS
No6 SHIELD WALL (NEXT BEST BET) looks primed to breakthrough here after three good runs this time in, she was just touched off last start over 1500m and the step here to 1600m and the booking of Bowman looks to suit perfectly.
No2 VAUCLUSE BAY found the line well enough fresh at Newcastle and just missed in a three way go, the step to 1600m suits.
No3 LA CHATTE was horrid last start in the Adrian Knox, but the trial since was quite good and previous to that she was good.
No5 ROYAL STAMP looks to be next best, in a race dominated by the top three.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 VAUCLUSE BAY
No2 FABRICATOR (BEST BET) threw the race away ten days ago over 1300m at this track. If he can run much more tractably he looks to be a cut above these. The form out of his recent runs has stood up quite well.
No4 MANDOLIZE has been going well enough recently and finds Tommy here, he needs to be respected.
No5 COMMONWEALTH has trialled up well enough leading into this and was ok enough in her first prep.
No6 HOLLYMOUNT STAR found the line in good time last start, the step now to 1200m looks to suit.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 COMMONWEALTH
No6 WILD AVA
No3 MY SURFER GIRL
VALUE RUNNER: No3 MY SURFER GIRL
No9 CHAIN OF FOOLS low flying in her trials leading into this, the blinkers off will enable her to relax and race more tractably.
No4 IRISH SUCCESS (BEST ROUGHIE) should be a price due to the stable and jockey booking with some of the big boys engaged. The trials have been solid.
No6 REVENIRE draws a sticky gate for the debut run, but has been trialing well enough to be a chance here.
No3 I AM LEXUS very good in his only trial to date and gets blinkers on for the debut here.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 IRISH SUCCESS
No4 ALERT BY SEA
No2 FLEETING STRYKE
VALUE RUNNER: No8 SACAMANO
No1 EMPEROR’S WAY brings the best form to this race and has had a trial since his last run and did what he needed to do. The form around Oaklahoma Girl is more than good enough for this lot and he should be winning.
No2 QUEACHY solid enough on debut in a good race which has held up form wise. Have to respect it here.
No4 HOME RUN should improve here with a host of gear changes, and from gate 1 he gets a good run.
No7 PROFUSIVE trialing up well enough leading into a fresh run here, the 1400m is a good kick off point.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 HOME RUN
No5 ROKDA KASBA
VALUE RUNNER: No5 ROKDA KASBA
