Gosford and Townsville are the meetings where we have identified a few serious chances that look well placed and will prove hard to beat. Our top pick was a last start winner and shapes as a major player resuming here today.
Gosford is racing on a Good 4 with the rail True.
Townsville is racing on a Good 4 with the rail -7.5m 1000-WP.3m remainder.
SONJA placed at on debut at Hawkesbury and looks poised to build on that performance. This Godolphin filly chased hard to be beaten by a length to Adamina on debut and will strip fitter second-up here today. Has drawn to get the run of the race and looks a major player today. Sticking with her.
1st: No5 SONJA 2nd: No2 Line Up Girls; 3rd: No1 Shinju; 4th: No3 Snips
CAMPARI has placed at all her four starts to date and looks well placed to break through first-up from a break here today. Having her first start across the Tasman, this mare measured up to some of the best three-year-olds back home. Looks to have some talent. Key player.
1st: No1 CAMPARI 2nd: No2 Bouudi; 3rd: No6 Anaita; 4th: No4 Flamin’ Al
Sticking with the lightly raced HOT SHOT HARRY to bounce back after narrowly missing on this track last start. Settled wide and came home strong when finishing half a length behind Little Fred Corvette a fortnight back. Has the form to be very competitive and will be the one rocketing home late. Rates on top.
1st: No7 HOT SHOT HARRY 2nd: No3 Go By Rio; 3rd: No8 Chica Peeps; 4th: No4 Septimo
Impossible to go past the lightly raced THE TENOR (BEST BET) that’s drawn well and looks perfectly placed resuming from a break here today. Showed ability on debut when streaking away to an impressive two-length victory at Newcastle. Finished in the placings at Randwick back in July behind the likes of Plague Stone and Witherspoon and warmed up for this when third in a trial on the Beaumont track behind El Dorado Dreaming and Everest-bound In Her Time. This grade suits, rates on top.
1st: No3 THE TENOR 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No4 Flash Stinger; 3rd: No8 Showgals; 4th: No1 Magnarock
*SCRATCHED* ADAMINA looks ready to win again despite drawing wide (10). The daughter of Snitzel led throughout at Hawkesbury last start over 1100 metres and the extra distance here won’t be a concern. Prior to that ran second to Starry at Newcastle when racing on the speed throughout. Expect James Innes Jnr to push forward from the gate and put her in a prominent spot. The one to beat.
1st: *SCRATCHED* No9 ADAMINA 2nd: No2 Readycatgo; 3rd: No4 Apache Dude; 4th: No7 Lilith
