Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, previews Tuesday’s Warwick Farm meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 7 races. Good luck, punters!

Track Condition: Soft 7

Rail Position: out 5m , 1000m to w/p, out 3m remainder course

What a tough race. Not much worthwhile form to go on here. I do think PUBLICIST will spear from the gates and lead and that may prove a winning move. He is fairly tough having led until into the stretch last start this grade when resuming from a spell and wound up 4th. Should be fitter now.

INDIFFERENCE ran an eye-catching 6th on debut and made ground from a long way back. Will be off speed again, but this is 100m further plus he’s fitter.

Similarly RUSSIAN RUBLE. He’s coming off a few placings where he ran home hard of late. Must be considered.


PIERRO CALLING is on home track and is having 2nd start here so those things make her a chance. Was 5th in a similar race not beaten far on debut. Big show.

Really liked the way SOPRANO roared home to run 2nd when resuming from a spell last start. This is no harder and in fact is 150m further which should help a great deal. Has claims now fitter.

SCAT’S SURFER GIRL was unplaced in both starts this grade last campaign but each time showed a little suggesting may get better with age. Well, roll forward a few months, and did win a trial nicely the other day. May now be ready.


DE GRAWIN ran a cracker of a race first-up last start in a better field. On home track today and if he brings that pace, he is in this for a long way. Pace will be on here and he should rattle home.

SIXGUN resumes here with a weight allowance for Tom Sherry. Is generally very good first-up and is a constant campaigner at this level. Big show.

This is a big step up in grade for RUPERTAAR but he has convinced won his past two and is very fit now. Is also on home track which helps. Must be strongly fancied.


TRAVEST looks, now he has a 3kg claim, to be very well placed here. Should settle off the pace and make a bold charge late. Must have in your numbers this trip. Might be the only progeny of Tavistock that can’t stay, which would explain his poor run over 1800m last start.

If they send SO SNEEKY to the lead he might just keep going. Is 3rd up here and led all way to win much easier race at Goulburn last start this trip in fast time.  Bound to be in the fray again.

This looks ideal for JUNGLE BOOK. He is 3rd up, ran a terrific 4th this grade last start, loves this trip and a damp track. Big danger.


Good betting race. NIKAU didn’t take long to bounce back into form this prep with a really strong finish to win similar race last start at Newcastle when 2nd up. Should run home gamely.

Home track advantage a big help in assessing the chances of O’TARTAN LASS. Rises in grade here and resumes from spell but likes to be on speed and should be in the fray.

GIRLS ARE READY is up from Canberra and is back to her best form. Won well in the bush then chased home the speedy Peyton   Place in the Moruya Cup this trip. Seems very honest.


MONTSERRAT resumes here and looks nicely placed. Can run with this grade and he’s had two really stirring trials, the latest of which he won impressively. Looks ready enough to run lights out here.

The run SAVOURY put in last start at this grade to grab 4th was his best for some time and he is fitter now. Gets a 2kg claim and loves the damp track. Can do so again although this is very strong.

FORTIFIED is resuming and is in the right grade. Gets back a bit here but has talent enough and can hit the wire hard.


SILENT AGENDA is a pretty consistent galloper and goes well enough at this level. Resumes here and gets a welcome 3kg relief plus is on home track. So must be considered.

IN LIGHTEN ME hasn’t shown much at all for some starts but is perfectly drawn and down in class. Also, is 4th up so expect a much bolder run.But he looks talented.

CONCEITED ran on gamely to just miss at Flemington in a slightly stronger race last start then was spelled. While spelling was sold so races for new connections here. And his two trials have been strong. Can win first-up here.
