Hawkesbury for the Sunday provincial meeting here, big watch on the weather here as we have rain about and at the time of writing the track is a heavy 9. We have 8 races on the card and the rail is true.
QUADDIES (races 5-6-7-8)
Skinny Play: 4,5 – 1,3,4 – 2,5 – 1,4
Wide Play: 4,5,6,10 – 1,3,4,9 – 1,2,4,5 – 1,2,3,4
BEST BET: R5 – 4. DELACROIX
Next Best Bet: R1 -1. POLEMIC
Best Roughie: R3 -2. JAGGER
No1 POLEMIC (NEXT BEST BET) is the only one with some progression in this field, the win at Gosford was the one that he had to win. He has good form around him this time in against some nicer horses and looks well placed by Beadman here to keep going on that upward spiral.
No3 VALENTINO ROSSA drops well in grade here after ok sort of a run in a Saturday race and has a chance here.
No4 MY FRIEND CHARLIE has had a freshen since the run behind Oklahoma Girl in midweek level, that is more than good enough for this.
No5 ZIJIN CHENG will appreciate the step up in distance here after a solid run last start in what looks to be a good race.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 ZIJIN CHENG
No4 MOCCASIN MISS
No1 FIFTY WAYS
VALUE RUNNER: No1 FIFTY WAYS
No2 JAGGER (BEST ROUGHIE) has solid enough form around it and being from the unfashionable stable it could be over its true odds.
No8 ZEPHERINE has been trialing up well enough coming into a fresh run here, she comes out of good races in her first prep.
No7 MISTICA MORE came out of a good race on debut and should be improved for that.
No6 WEEKEND AFFAIR
VALUE RUNNER: No2 JAGGER
No1 MY EMPIRE
No2 IM HEARING YA
No7 JEWEL OF HONOUR
No10 SECRET MISTRESS
VALUE RUNNER: No2 IM HEARING YA
No4 DELACROIX (BEST BET) jumps sharply to the 1800m here second-up from a spell but it looks to suit as he is a horse with some staying ability, he was off the map last time in, in a Wednesday race and fell at the start. He finds as weak a race that he has seen here and should be winning.
No5 GRAND TETON has been good enough in three runs so far in a career and should appreciate the step to 1800m.
No6 LUCKY TIGER going well enough and is honest as they come, but seems to hate the winning post.
No10 PERSONABLE solid enough in all runs so far and the step to 1800m suits.
VALUE RUNNER: No10 PERSONABLE
No3 KIARRA ROSE
No1 ART OF DEFENCE
No4 GOT TO THINK
VALUE RUNNER: No4 GOT TO THINK
No2 WRITE THIS DOWN
No5 LADY CHALFONT
No3 CENTRO SUPERIOR
No1 BUDDY'S ODE
VALUE RUNNER: No4 FLYS AWAY
No1 BALIUS has good form around him and has been going quite well as of late, the claim for Panya is quite advantageous.
No8 SPINNING DAWN
No9 OUR ANNIVERSAIRE
No12 PRETTY SMART.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 DRILL MASTER
