Gosford for our Thursday provincial NSW meeting. Small fields stopping us from getting good value out of the fields here. We have eight races on offer and the Gosford track has been playing quite well as of late. The rail is +3m the circumference and we will be on a good track.
QUADDIES (races 5-6-7-8)
Skinny Play: 1,3 – 1,5 – 3 – 3,5,8
Wide Play: 1,3,8 – 1,3,5,8 – 1,3,5,9 - 1,3,4,5,8,12
BEST BET: R7 – 5 NEVER OUT
Next Best Bet: R1 – 1. CHALK
Best Roughie: R4 – 6. THAI BOXING
No1 CHALK (NEXT BEST BET) Brings the best form to this race, not far off them on debut in a Listed race then did a lot wrong over 1300m at Warwick Farm behind Pelorus Jack. The form out of that is more than good enough for this and back to 1000m is much better.
No4 SEETHING JACKAL has been trialing up in good fashion leading to a debut run and should run well here.
No5 JAWDAA is well bred, but yet to live up to that. The two runs haven’t been too flash. But the trial coming in was good.
No2 THE PATRICIAN should be improved for the debut run and looks next best.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 JAWDAA
No6 DENIM STREET
VALUE RUNNER: No4 OUR CONSOLATION
No6 SO SPLENDID
No2 GO BENNY
No3 RED VIKING
VALUE RUNNER: No2 GO BENNY
No6 THAI BOXING (BEST ROUGHIE) was solid enough last start in a good race at Scone, the step up now to 1600m is ideal.
No1 EMPEROR’S WAY needs to show me that he can put a field away before I want to back him. His form is rock solid.
No7 MATRIMONY comes out of a good race at Newcastle on debut and should be improved out to 1600m here.
No3 THE WORLD OVER is out to 1600m third-up from a spell and now gets Avdulla who will give him every chance.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 THAI BOXING
No1 COORG is a solid enough horse, but meets a sticky gate here. He was ridden way too negatively last start and has been back to the trials.
No3 KENNEDY comes out of good form races in his first preparation, the trial coming into this was quite good.
No8 WINDS OF CHANGE Two starts for two placings.. His first outing he was narrowly beaten by 0.2L in a Gosford Maiden. Last start he was 2.8L third at Canterbury. Easier here and should be very competitve.
No12 ZEGOTA this All Too Hard filly is having her first start after a nice set of trails. She was the first home in a 798m trial at Warwick Farm. Could be the value in the race.
VALUE RUNNER: No12 ZEGOTA
No1 DEADLY SHADOW
No8 SONS OF BOURKE
VALUE RUNNER: No5 ROCKIT
No9 LA CHICA BELLA Resumes for J Pride here after starting off her career at Tassie, no idea about the form. But the debut win was stylish enough.
No1 BALMAIN GIRL was behind Your Way last start and that is very good form for a race like this, she will be finishing off.
No3 WITCHES In easier company here than its last start. Badly checked when finishing a 4.3L seventh at this trak last start. Was competitve against some nice horse in Melbourne. Has the form to be competitive.
VALUE RUNNER: No9 LA CHICA BELLA
No5 ASPEN STAR
VALUE RUNNER: No3 HIGHLEIGH
