Newcastle for the Saturday provincial meeting. We have eight races on the card and this track has played brilliantly since the redevelopment. We will be on a good surface on raceday and the rail is out 5.5m the circuit.

 

QUADDIES (races 5-6-7-8)

Skinny Play: 6,11 – 1,7 – 1,2,4 – 1,2,6,8

Wide Play: 6,8,11,12 – 1,6,7,8 – 1,2,4,6 - FIELD

 

BEST BET: R1 – 1. CURDLED

Next Best Bet: R4 – 1. PALOMINO

Best Roughie: R3 – 3. BIRDSONG

R1 – 11.55am. ROYLES 2YO MAIDEN PLATE - 900m.

No1 CURDLED (BEST BET) should improve at his second preparation here. He comes out of some good form races at his first two starts and looks super hard to beat on exposed form. The trial leading in was quite good and I think on better going he should be winning.

 

No5 CHEERS JOYCE trialled well on her home track leading into this, she claims down to 52kgs and has a chance.

 

No10 MISS CASIER trialled in good fashion at Hawkesbury leading into this. Newman tends to place his horses well and must be respected.

 

No12 WARTIME LOVERS is really well bred, being out of Military Rose and she has trialled well coming into this. But may need further.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No10 MISS CASIER

CURDLED (BEST BET) Race 1 Royles 2yo maiden plate - Winner

R2 – 12.30pm. GOODMAN FIELDER FOOD SERVICES CLASS 1 HANDICAP - 1400m.

No1 MR TICKETS

 

No2 MUTARAKEM

 

No5 MUNJAI

 

No6 ROSEITO

 

VALUE RUNNER: No2 MUTARAKEM

R3 – 1.05pm. WILLIAM YEE MAIDEN PLATE - 1400m.

No3 BIRDSONG (BEST ROUGHIE) is fresh into this, but brings good form coming into the race. Form around Invincible Gem and Dawn Wall is good enough, as was the trial coming to this.

 

No5 EVANESCE started quite short on debut and wasn’t too bad. Coming into a second prep here she should improve.

 

No7 ISLE OF CAPRI should improve second up out to 1400m here. She was just behind a few good ones there and this is a little weaker.

 

No4 CAPPELLA MAGNA was 1000m-1400m very quickly last start and went down by the barest margin. She should be improved here.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No 3 BIRDSONG

R4 – 1.45pm. CARGILL MAIDEN HANDICAP - 1200m.

No1 PALOMINO (NEXT BEST BET) should handle this lot with ease given the form she brings to this. She has Group 1 winners all around her and has trialled brilliantly coming into this. If she is wound up fresh she could well blow this lot away.

 

No3 BELLE TOURNURE has trialled well leading into a debut run here. I like how she had her latest trial over 1045m.

 

No7 OFF THE DIAL takes on the older horses here and has trialled well enough leading in. The stable must have an opinion of her to take on the older ones on debut.

 

No4 WHAT A SISTER hasn’t shown a hell of a lot at the trials, but I am trusting K Lees to have her right come race day.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No 7 OFF THE DIAL

PALOMINO (NEXT BEST BET) Race 4 Cargill maiden handicap - Winner

R5 – 2.25pm. MISSION FOODS MAIDEN PLATE – 1850m.

No11 SAUCY LADY

 

No6 SMOOTH WHISKEY

 

No12 SO SPLENDID

 

No8 GRACIOUSNESS

 

VALUE RUNNER: No6 SMOOTH WHISKEY

R6 – 3.05pm. THAT'S RICH, MAGGI GRAVY! CG&E BENCHMARK 60 HANDICAP - 1200m.

No5 CHARGE OF LIGHT

 

No7 SWORN IN

 

No6 THORN IN MY SIDE

 

No8 LAST CARD JOE

 

VALUE RUNNER: No8 LAST CARD JOE

R7 – 3.45pm. THE MASTERFOODS F&M BENCHMARK 60 HANDICAP - 1200m.

No2 MOONLIGHT WALTZ ran home in ripping time last start, if she takes some confidence out of the win she looks hard to beat.

 

No1 DIVERGENCE took on a pretty handy race first-up and didn’t run too badly albeit a last. She comes well back in grade here and has a chance second-up.

 

No4 PENNY STAR starts in this race on debut, yet there is a 1200m maiden earlier on? They must have an opinion of her. She gets the blinkers and I’m wary.

 

No6 LONGCHAMP LASS should run well here on her home track. The form around her is quite good and she looks set to peak third-up.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No4 PENNY STAR

R8 – 4.20pm. EWH FOOD SERVICES BENCHMARK 70 HANDICAP - 1400m.

No1 STRICTLY CONCERT

 

No8 RED KNOT

 

No2 JEMADAR

 

No6 COLOUR OF MONEY

 

VALUE RUNNER: No8 RED KNOT
