Newcastle is the location for Saturday’s provincial racing. We have eight races on the card here. I am a touch concerned about the track as last time we raced here it was quite chopped up with a lot of kickback. With the rail out 10m, though, it should help, and we should be on a good surface.

 

 

QUADDIES (races 5-6-7-8)

Skinny Play: 1,2  -  3  -  1,4  -  3,4,6,8

Wide Play:  1,2,6  -  2,3,5  - 1,3,4,7  -   1,2,3,4,6,8

 

BEST BET: R6 – 3. METEOR GAL

Next Best Bet: R3 – 4. OSBORNE BULLS

Best Roughie: R8 – 4. JOY FOR US

R1 – 12.19pm. Maiden Plate - 1600m

No6 ALMIGHTY comes through a good race last start where the form has already stacked up quite well. Out to the 1600m suits and he looks hard to beat.

 

No7 SPEEDWAY closed off well last start behind Ace High, who looks to be a nice horse. 1600m now suits.

 

No3 SACRED EDGE has been going well enough as of late and again looks a place hope in what is a good race.

 

No4 SOCIAL ELEMENT was good on debut at Hawkesbury and should improve again up to 1600m at the second start.   

 

VALUE RUNNER: No4 SOCIAL ELEMENT

R2 – 12.54pm. Class 2 Handicap - 1600m

No1 SEVENTHCHIC

 

No2 SENSACOVA

 

No5 TOAST

 

No6 SVAVARSSON

 

VALUE RUNNER: No5 TOAST

R3 – 1.29pm. Benchmark 65 Handicap - 1300m

No4 OSBORNE BULLS (NEXT BEST) looks to be very well placed here at the second start by Godolphin. He was a big winner at the track on debut in pretty slick time. He is bred to be a very handy horse out of Jerezana, and he looks to be “backdooring” his way into the carnival by getting some confidence-boosting wins.

 

No2 SASSABY has been trialing well coming into the fresh run, and is a chance here.

 

No3 BETTER BE GOOD comes out of a very fast-run race last start. He comes down a cog in grade and will run well again.

 

No1 MAESTRO TOM resumes here and has some solid highway form. Got a shocker of a ride last start, and watch the betting here.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No1 MAESTRO TOM

R4 – 2.04pm. Maiden Handicap - 1200m

No2 THE AVENGER

 

No1 SPRINTING TO WIN

 

No6 DECROUX

 

No7 MAHALANGUR

 

VALUE RUNNER: No6 DECROUX

R5 – 2.39pm. Benchmark 66 Handicap - 2900m

No1 SERIOUS HOFFA

 

No2 NAPOLEON

 

No6 RED DREAM

 

No5 MAGENTAZ

 

VALUE RUNNER: No6 RED DREAM

R6 – 3.19pm. Maiden Handicap - 900m

No3 METEOR GAL (BEST BET) has been flying at the trials and finds a very winnable race on debut. This type of horse will suit the jockey as it is a simple jump and run and she has drawn out wide, which will suit a leader here. If Panya can get her across with some sort of ease, they won’t catch her.

 

No2 LATIN BOY looks the closer here. He will sit just behind them and come late. The trial was solid.

 

No5 COROGLEN is a jump and run horse and will look to do that here. The last 50m is a worry.

 

No6 D’LAST ZA has been going well enough as of late and looks a knockout.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No5 COROGLEN

R7 – 3.59pm. Benchmark 66 Handicap - 1300m

No4 SMART AS

 

No1 SO HARD TO CATCH

 

No7 DELAGO THUNDER

 

No3 FANCY NICKERS

 

VALUE RUNNER: No1 SO HARD TO CATCH

R8 – 4.39pm. Maiden Handicap - 1200m

No4 JOY FOR US (BEST ROUGHIE) was quite good on debut in what looks to be an OK sort of a race, and she has race fitness on her side.

 

No6 BRIGHT IDEA is supremely bred and comes into this off the back of two nice enough trials.

 

No8 JAWHARA has improved with each trial coming into the debut run and should run well here.

 

No3 FADING SHADES has been doing a good job at the trials and is well educated for the debut run.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No4 JOY FOR US
