Muswellbrook for Friday country racing here in the New South Wales region. We have eight races here with big fields throughout the day. The rail is back into the true position with the weather in the lead up fine, so track will be good.
QUADDIES (races 5-6-7-8)
Skinny Play: 1,6 - 1,2 - 1,3,7 - 5,6,9
Wide Play: 1,3,6 - 1,2,3,6 - 1,3,7,8 - 3,5,6,9
BEST BET: R5 – 6. Waruna
Next Best Bet: R3 – 10. World Force
Best Roughie: R4 – 8. Star Of New York
SCRATCHED - No13 The Savant gets out to what looks to be a suitable distance here, too far back last start at Tamworth and she will find 1750m suitable.
No1 Augusta In April
No3 Mr Butcher
No6 Talladega Knight
VALUE RUNNER: No3 Mr Butcher
No 15 Lady Of Shalott has been trialing well coming into the debut run here, being by Camelot she may want further, but I have liked the trials.
No7 Dundee Lee
No5 Daisy Pluck
No3 Lu’s In Charge
VALUE RUNNER: No5 Daisy Pluck
No10 World Force (NEXT BEST BET) has been going about his business quite well at the trials, Snowdens usually send a good one to this meeting before the Scone meeting in two weeks. So I am trusting what they do yet again.
No2 Fearless Al
No5 His Kingdom
No7 Smooth Factor
VALUE RUNNER: No5 His Kingdom
SCRATCHED - No8 Star Of New York (BEST ROUGHIE) was sensationally backed last start before pulling up with issues, trust the SP. The trial since was quite good, this is weaker.
No9 On A Comet
SCRATCHED - No6 Road To Nowhere
VALUE RUNNER: SCRATCHED - No8 Star Of New York
No6 Waruna (BEST BET) was a very good winner on debut and should only improve for the run there. I like the jockey change to Bullock on board and the step up in distance here should only suit and she should storm over the top of them.
No1 Tirone Miss
VALUE RUNNER: No3 Yeoman
No1 Dylan’s Dynasty closed off in good order fresh and was quite well backed there, and this is a step back in grade.
No3 Still Undaunted
No6 We’re Smokin
VALUE RUNNER: No6 We’re Smokin
No3 Salerno resumes here and has the best 1000m record in the race. The two trials coming into this have been quite good.
VALUE RUNNER: No8 Bonita
No6 Bills A Goodie got too far back with the big weight fresh. He brings good highway form to this and should be better suited second-up.
No9 Kiarra Rose
VALUE RUNNER: No9 Kiarra Rose
