Goulburn is our main meeting away from Sydney on this Saturday and we have the Country Championships qualifier headlining the meeting here, with nominal fav Don’t Give A Damn likely to start short here, but he should be too good for them. Outside we have seven other showcase races on a good track with the rail true.
QUADDIES (races 5-6-7-8)
Skinny Play: 4,6 - 1,2,8 - 2 - 1
Wide Play: 1,4,6 - 1,2,8 - 2 - 1,3,4,6
BEST BET: R7 – 2. DON’T GIVE A DAMN
Next Best Bet: R2 – 2. ONE STRYKE
Best Roughie: R4 – 8. BEAUTY KANAS
No1 MISSED OUT was good enough fresh in what looked to be a good race that they ran good time in, and should improve second-up.
No3 ONE MORE TIPPLE has trialled well in the lead up to the debut run, and should run well.
No6 KRUPTEASE has had the one quiet trial leading into the debut run at home for the big money, watch the market.
No7 MUNRO resumes here without a trial and should be considered a market watch, as she was short enough on debut.
VALUE RUNNER: No3 ONE MORE TIPPLE
No2 ONE STRYKE (NEXT BEST BET) resumes here and has been running fast times in winning the last two before the break, the trials have been quite good and she is well placed to resume here, and with She Knows possibly running in Sydney, I am happy to make her the next best of the day.
No3 SHE KNOWS is in the highway today also, assume she runs there as she is hard to beat there.
No8 I AM KALANI resumes without a trial here and did a good job at winning her past two.
No1 PARLAY VOUS is a nice horse, but needs to improve.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 I AM KALANI
No3 FUN TICKETS was good when winning at Canberra last start, the step up to the mile here looks suitable.
No5 SACRED EDGE has been in good enough form as of late, and closed off well last start in a race which wasn’t run to suit.
No8 DELUDE steps up quickly here to the mile and closed off well there.
No1 NOT TOO SURE drops in grade here and looks a chance on his best form.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 DELUDE
No7 SHE’S DEMANDING should settle closer from the gate here, and wasn’t ready for the 1850m last start. Back to the mile suits.
No8 BEAUTY KANAS (BEST ROUGHIE) steps to the mile here and that looks to suit as she closed off well on debut.
No3 DELFUEGO has been going ok enough as of late and drops in grade here
No2 ARMS RACE was ok enough fresh and should be much fitter for that.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 BEAUTY KANAS
No4 EL MO was solid enough last start in highway level and comes back to this grade now, he is also entered in the championships so that shows the confidence Williams has in this galloper.
No6 FURTHER TO FLY flogged them when breaking the maiden last start and should be respected
No1 EL DORADO MINE should be much better suited at the 1400m and will be running on.
No8 MISTRESS MACE was good when breaking the maiden and is well placed here.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 MISTRESS MACE
No8 BOCELLI was a very strong winner on debut, the step up to 1300m should only suit further.
No2 TIGER BY THE TALE should be much better suited back in grade.
No1 NO LUCK NEEDED is an honest type who will be in this for a long way.
No7 NAGGING gets the blinkers off here, and one last chance at her home track to run well.
VALUE RUNNER: No1 NO LUCK NEEDED
No2 DON’T GIVE A DAMN (BEST BET) should be too good for this lot off his first-up win at Rosehill when he ran them into the ground. He will jump and run from the wide gate and dominate the race here, he has the upside that they don’t, and may well be a Doncaster horse.
No5 BIODYNAMIC resumes here and brings ok enough UK form, the trial was ok enough. Watch the betting.
No8 KOPI LUWAK has drawn well here, but is off a setback. But he is too good a horse to discount.
No11 ACQUITTAL will roll forward with Don't Give A Damn here and got taken on in front last time and knocked up late, the form has held up.
VALUE RUNNER: No5 BIODYNAMIC
No1 LEGENDOFOZ resumes here and should be too good for this lot, the form he brings is better than this and the trial was good.
No6 ZAFFIRINA was touched off late fresh and should improve second-up and looks the exacta horse.
No3 RED CURRANT has been trialing up in good order leading to the debut and should run well.
No4 SO STRONG was well backed fresh and played up behind the gates and was passed fit to run, punters knew they were cooked then. The trial since was good.
VALUE RUNNER: No3 RED CURRANT
