Hawkesbury Race 1 (1300m)

When a stable is on fire it should be followed and David Payne’s is that right now. This unraced boy of his in the first race, WAR RIBBON, has been steadily backed over night to win this on debut. Not massively crunched, but enough to make you wonder and he has trialled well. I’m having something on him in this.

Sometimes you just have to take the short odds because it appears like stealing money. I get that impression today with QUICKSTER. She resumes here but is better than these. If they serve up $1.80 or better – get on.

Hawkesbury Race 5 (1400m) 4:05 am

There’s a long odds-on pop here called REDBREAST who likes to lead and will take catching. However, on debut she did that and did get caught in this grade running a game 3rd. That was on debut over 1200m. This is 200m longer and she is facing a pretty handy one on the improve here called RIP OFF. I think she is vulnerable so therefore on all in on the Godolphin filly. Rip Off was 3rd at this level last start making ground late and this extra 150m will suit her. Big chance to knock over the fav. Quinella them.

Once again I am swayed by the money. And the Kavanaghs produce one here with Blake Shinn on top called AMPHACTOR. Resumes here and has been very heavily backed to win this first up. Has been gelded since last run too and that often improves them considerably.

I love a horse 3rd up and when they come from a powerhouse stable like Ciaron Maher’s it must be backed. So I’m on LINKS here. She was great when 2nd this class when resuming, then down the track last start but 2nd up syndrome often does that. Looks well placed today.
