Gosford shapes as our focus with a couple gallopers looking to atone for last start defeats on a Good surface that will play fair for all runners. Our top selection looks a serious galloper and will prove hard to beat.
Gosford is racing on a Good 4 with the rail +2m 1600m-1100m, +4m Remainder
Echuca is racing on a Soft 5 with the rail True Entire Circuit.
No3 THE HAITIAN POET
Sticking with THE HAITIAN POET who was unlucky at his race debut at Newcastle and will look to atone for that narrow here today. Looked the winner only to be nailed right on the line on debut with 3rd place a further 2.4 lengths away. Will strip fitter second-up and prove hard to beat here today. Key player.
1st: No3 THE HAITIAN POET; 2nd: No4 Haikili; 3rd: No5 Nuclear Burst; 4th: No7 Skyray
No8 CHAMPAGNE FRIDAY (NEXT BEST BET)
After drawing the perfect barrier, CHAMPAGNE FRIDAY can atone for his disappointing effort at Geelong last start when well beaten. Has had a three week freshen up leading into his return and can bounce back and break through for her much deserved maiden victory here today. Looks hard to go past and sure to be very competitive. Big chance.
1st: No8 CHAMPAGNE FRIDAY; 2nd: No4 Eden Eagle; 3rd: No9 Kaledi; 4th: No6 Stormy Jack
The unlucky RESONARE looks ready to break through after finishing runner up at his past three starts. Has drawn well and sure to be very competitive to get the victory he deserves here today. Look for him to settle just behind the speed and have the last crack at them in the straight. Stick with him as that win isn’t far away.
1st: No3 RESONARE; 2nd: No8 Kentford; 3rd: *SCRATCHED* No5 Eskimo River; 4th: No4 Westrock
No2 INVINCIBLE LAD
Sticking with the I Am Invincible gelding INVINCIBLE LAD who looked a touch unlucky on this track last start. Went around in some handy races last preparation, bumping into the likes of Long Leaf, Performer and Santos. Looks to have returned in good order this prep and will be a major player here today. Winning chance.
1st: No2 INVINCIBLE LAD; 2nd: No4 Foxy Lulu; 3rd: No7 Royal Witness; 4th: No8 Buckle Up Baby
No4 REGINE (BEST BET)
REGINE looks a serious chance and will be in this for a long way here today. This lightly raced mare looks perfectly placed to bounce back into the winner’s circle. She returns to a very winnable grade and will have the services of leading jockey B Avdulla on board. Beaten by 3.2 lengths at Rosehill last start by the smart Tornado Gal. She ticks all the boxes and looks the pick of the program at Gosford today. Big Danger.
1st: No4 REGINE; 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No7 Mohican; 3rd: *SCRATCHED* No2 Cormac; 4th: No5 Corinth
