Gosford for the Thursday provincial meeting. I need to question why this meeting is on. We have Scone Friday and Hawkesbury this past Tuesday. Shown in acceptances of only 75 horses in eight races. Kills value for us punters! Rail is +3m 1100m-W/Post, True Remainder and we will be on a good track.
QUADDIES (races 5-6-7-8)
Skinny Play: 2,3 – 4,5,6 – 1 – 1,5
Wide Play: 1,2,3,6 – 1,4,5,6 – 1,3,6 – 1,2,5,6
BEST BET: R1 – 6. LATITUTDE
Next Best Bet: R2 – 1. INTEGRATED
Best Roughie: R4 – 2. KETTERING
No6 LATITUDE (BEST BET) gets her best chance to win a race and if she doesn’t here, I think she won't be in the Hawkes stable for much longer. Placed in six of her seven runs, she brings the best form to a weak maiden and should be winning.
No5 HARPERZOZO has trialled up well coming into the fresh run here. She brings good form to this and has her chance.
No2 PURE REBEL brings good form to the race here and was too bad to be true fresh. The trial between runs was solid.
No7 SCENT OF A WOMAN has been going well enough and finds a race to run well in here.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 SCENT OF A WOMAN
No1 INTEGRATED (NEXT BEST BET) has been gelded since the last-start run and has trialled well coming into this fresh run here. From gate 4 I think Avdulla should be able to take up the running here and be hard to run down.
No3 MO THE GREAT has improved from trial to trial and may well improve again here. Clark on board on debut he has his chance.
No5 LIVE TO DREAM has been trialing up well coming into the debut run, from gate 1 Collett should sit just off the speed and look for luck in the straight.
No6 QUATTRO FOGLIE has been good in both runs to date thus far and ran home in quick time last start. She looks to have her chance here.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 QUATTRO FOGLIE
No1 HE’S DREAMIN’
No2 ART OF DEFENCE
VALUE RUNNER: No3 KILMARNOCK
No2 KETTERING (BEST ROUGHIE) has been trialing up in good fashion coming into a debut run. He has drawn wide and may well need to go back in the run.
No4 REVENIRE looks well set up for a good debut run here, he has trialled against some nice horses and has run good time.
No7 WINDS OF CHANGE looks set to take up the speed here with blinkers and a nasal strip on for his debut. Being trained by Gai he will go forward and charge!
No10 SACHER TORTE has got a sticky draw for the debut run here. From gate 10 she will have to take a sit and need luck in running.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 KETTERING
No2 SATIRICAL MAGIC
No6 POSTMASTER GENERAL
VALUE RUNNER: No1 ASPIRING
No4 SAHARA STRIKE
No5 DARK SECRET
VALUE RUNNER: No4 SAHARA STRIKE
No1 MY TRUE LOVE brings the best form to this and is brilliantly placed. If she is ready to go here she will be winning this.
No3 ENTERPRISE MOUNT was a good winner on debut, before running into some nice horses. With a long spell and a good trial coming in he has his chance.
No5 VALIANT MATE drops well in grade here and brings solid form to this race, the 1100m may be too short however.
No6 PARIS FOR ME won in good fashion upon resumption, she looks to be a class filly and can go through the grades.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 VALIANT MATE
