Best Roughie: R4 – 1. WAKING MOMENT
No4 ISAURIAN (NEXT BEST BET) is brilliantly bred and has been trialing up in very good order coming into the debut run. Bowman has had the sit on him in the trials and stays aboard here which intrigues me. This colt looks quite smart and should be making a winning debut here.
No3 HIGHLY INFLUENTIAL is another smart trialer coming into this and gets a soft run in behind the speed here.
No2 ENFIELD OPP is owned and bred by Singo, has been well educated coming into this and should run well here.
No1 ELEAZAR has only had the one soft trial coming in and looks quite untapped.
VALUE RUNNER: No2 ENFIELD OPP
No2 BOOROOJ finds Bowman fresh here and gets the blinkers off. She has always been a filly with some hype and has been nominated for some good races and should go close here.
SCRATCHED No3 FAITH IN HAND comes from “other form” and started fav in a BM64 last start. To Sydney for the first time she should run well.
No5 CAPRICE has been trialing in typical Thompson order and will run much better than that fresh.
No1 SAVATIANO has a big impost as a 3yo filly here with 59.5kgs but has trialed well and comes out of good form races.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 CAPRICE
No2 WINE BUSH up in distance looks well suited here. He hasn’t won for near on a year, but is back out to a distance which suits.
No4 KNOW HOW won that race last start in good fashion, the step up to 2200m shouldn’t be an issue.
No1 THEWAYWEARE was run down late last week at the T&D quick back up no issue at all and should run well.
No5 READY FOR SUCCESS comes out of the Know How / Wine Bush race last start and gets in well after the claim here.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 READY FOR SUCCESS
No6 TUTU broke the maiden finally last start and did so in good fashion, that may well be the confidence boost she needs to go on with it.
No7 SO SPLENDID resumes here and comes off not too long a break, the trial was good and she should run well fresh.
No1 WAKING MOMENT (BEST ROUGHIE) was the Adrian Knox winner in the autumn, the trials have been ok enough and 1400m fresh is a good start.
No4 O’REILLY CYRUS has been ok enough in both runs from a spell this time in, third up she looks set to peak.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 WAKING MOMENT
No3 DRACHENFELS won in good order first-up from a spell and has since trialled well. Cummings uses this method well and this horse is hard to beat.
No9 MASTERATI has won the last two races in good fashion and this is a suitable step up to the midweeks here.
No8 CELLARMAN second-up from a spell should be much more suited here over 1400m than the 1200m fresh.
No5 ART OF EXCELLENCE has won the last two well, but I have questions of the strength of the form.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 CELLARMAN
No10 BEACON (BEST BET) won in brilliant fashion last start at Canterbury when appreciating a good jockey change. He gets a great run on the map here just in behind them and gets Bowman on board. I think he is a colt with very good ability who should go on to bigger things than this.
No2 TO EXCESS just missed last week in a good race and I like him up to 1100m here as he will be able to settle in the run.
No4 PARLAY VOUS finally broke through last start after a long run of outs and has the talent.
No11 RADIANT CHOICE resumes here and looks a nice prospect.
VALUE RUNNER: No4 PARLAY VOUS
No7 PIANISSIMO found the line quite well fresh and is a winner second up in the past. 1600m holds no worries.
No10 TUMULTUOUS ran right through the line fresh, in an indication that he may have found his form and 1600m suits.
No9 GAUGUIN gets the blinkers on here and has always been a horse with some promise.
No1 FORTENSKY you know what he is going to do, do not leave him out of your exotics.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 FORTENSKY
No11 ZONK has been trialing up brilliantly coming into this, my notes after her last trial were “moral wherever she runs fresh” enough said.
SCRATCHED No12 PLEASANTRIES won in good order on debut and now steps up but looks ready for it.
SCRATCHED No6 RIGHT AS RAIN won well first-up from a spell and has always been a horse with some hype attached to her.
No7 SHARPNESS comes out of a good race last start behind Noire last start and should run well.
VALUE RUNNER: No6 RIGHT AS RAIN
