Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, previews Wednesday’s Gosford meeting with horse racing tips and analysis for all six races on the card. Good luck, punters!

Track Condition: Heavy 8

Rail Position: True, entire circuit

Small field. MR BURGUNDY because of his solid finishing debut effort at the provincials to grab 3rd beaten less than a length appeals the most here. Gets in perfectly at the weights following the allowance and has the rails draw. Watch market but he appeals the most.

PAD THAI does too. He was on speed all the way when rah up the line when resuming. Previously had run 5th in Adelaide. Just two starts into his career but can run a drum.

NOBLE FLAME had won a trial but drifted in the betting last start when resuming and 6th at Kempsey. Has talent though and should improve a lot. Big show.


By virtue of having a few runs under his belt already, WIZARD OF OZ is in this up to his eye balls. Resumed from a spell in this grade last start and hit the line well when 4th. Should go even better this time from this nice gate.

Fairly certain ULTRA for Godolphin will make a charge at this. Improved to run a very game 2nd in this grade last start and is super fit now.

MAROONIYAH has talent and a great draw. Slow to begin last start and run can be forgotten. Fitter now too.


It will be very interesting to see if GENERAL DUBAI lives up to his previous brilliant first-up record. He resumes here. Has won at BM 64 level and likes it damp too, plus he’s drawn perfectly so everything suggests he will run a stellar race.

This bloke MARNIX has his first run for new trainer this afternoon and expect him to go well. Only won the once from 8 starts previously but is fit and is down in grade here.

This KEIKOKU is up a long way in grade from that stunning maiden win at Muswellbrook when last for home and running astonishing last sectional. Drops 3kg here. Has been heavily backed.


You have to give PROUD MIA a big chance here. She’s coming off a game win in similar grade and has an inform apprentice on top who takes off 2kg. Certain to be the one to beat down the running.

RUBINOCCHI has speed and she is going to take catching if let loose on the front. Loves it wet and her two wins have been lead-all-the-way victories on wet tracks. It is damp today too.

GIRL MANIA like the above pair, is a last start winner. Has ability but this is a step up from last start. Still, is consistent.


PICK THE SCORE is talented and consistent. After scoring a game win at Gosford in a BM 64, came to town and fi wished ran e off well when 3rd in slightly better company. Has a big weight here but is fit and in form.

ZOUMIST is 3rd up for new trainer and is showing form. Good 4th in a. similar race last start and can run on here too.

FORZANINI may well be Saturday grade. is only a 3YO and has raced 5 times. Her only win was at the Kenso course last campaign. Has trialled very impressively this time up and is expected to shine here.


KEY LAGO has been consistent every start from past two campaigns and can be expected to run boldly here first-up also. Looks well placed.

SCHILLER BAY has been up a while but does hold form really well and off this draw is sure to be in the money.

ALMIGHTY RISING has loads of speed and talent. Won maiden first-up last campaign and resumes here again.  Big show.
