Goulburn is the country New South Wales meeting for Monday, eight races on the card with some city flavor here. Eager to see Il Bandito go around yet again here, he is the best bet of the day and does look destined for better things than a Class 2 at Goulburn. The rail is out 2.5m and the going will be soft.
QUADDIES (races 5-6-7-8)
Skinny Play: 1,2 - 5,7 - 3,10 - 4,8
Wide Play: 1,2,5,10 - 1,5,7,8 - 3,5,10 - 3,4,8,10
SCRATCHED - BEST BET: R2 – 1. IL BANDITIO
SCRATCHED - Next Best Bet: R1 – 3. VINCERO
Best Roughie: R3 – 9. TOROSO
SCRATCHED - No3 VINCERO (NEXT BEST BET) comes out of a hot race on debut at Hawkesbury. That had come off some good trials and he has had time to get over that run. The trial leading in was fantastic.
No7 SUNEEZE comes out of a good race on debut over the Wagga carnival, this is weaker than that.
No9 CARTEL is the best of the D Williams trial horses coming into this and gets a good run on the map here.
SCRATCHED - No10 HARVEST DREAM trialled in quick time three weeks ago and looked to go quite well.
VALUE RUNNER: No7 SUNEEZE
SCRATCHED - No1 IL BANDITO (BEST BET) has been dominant at both runs in his two starts to date, the only fault on him is that he is a bit of a lad in the gates and has a play, if he is able to jump cleanly he can make a mess of them here, as he has run good times in both starts and looks a serious horse.
No2 SPRINGER comes out of good races at the first two starts and has trialled well.
No8 MACKELLAR was horrid fresh from a spell and the market told us so, she should improve here.
No6 BITE THE MEDIA is a fast horse and is good over the short course.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 MACKELLAR
No8 GREENSPAN has trialled in good order coming into a debut run here and soft going shouldn’t be an issue.
SCRATCHED - No4 TRUE WORTH was good on debut in what looks to be a nice race, with natural improvement he is a chance.
No9 TOROSO (BEST ROUGHIE) being bought here by the Snowden’s has me intrigued as they don’t usually come to Goulburn and he has trialled well.
SCRATCHED - No6 CHOUXTORIAL will appreciate 1300m and further later on, and he should run through the line.
VALUE RUNNER: No9 TOROSO
No1 COMMON PURPOSE
No9 CRIMSON SUN
SCRATCHED - No11 RAPTURE MISS
No7 STITCHED UP
VALUE RUNNER: No11 RAPTURE MISS
SCRATCHED - No2 MISTY MOUNTAIN HOP
No1 RED DREAM
No5 HELLO CHINA
VALUE RUNNER: No5 HELLO CHINA
SCRATCHED - No5 PRINCE OF THEBES
No7 HORSEY MCHORSEFACE
No8 ULTIMATE FANTASY
SCRATCHED - No1 I’M NO PHONY
VALUE RUNNER: No7 HORSEY MCHORSEFACE
No3 MR TICKETS got the job done well last start at the course and distance, it took him time to wind up but he was good enough and looks hard to beat again.
No10 SIR BARB was solid enough fresh for the new stable, further and a bigger field / more pace suits.
No5 I’M NO PHONY (In R6 also) has been good at winning his last two and looks a chance in whatever he runs in.
SCRATCHED - No1 TRIANTAN will get over further this time in, but has trialled ok enough.
VALUE RUNNER: No10 SIR BARB
SCRATCHED - No8 MULU MAGIC
No3 CRAFTY TYCOON
VALUE RUNNER: No10 ARRONDISSEMENT
