Track Condition: Soft 6
Rail Position: Out 5m, entire circuit
This looks a pretty strong juvenile race. FASTCONI sat on a strong pace on debut and was still there beaten a head on the wire. Form will stand up from that mdn. Fitter now and has drawn perfectly. HEAD LEGISLATOR is unraced but has the rails draw and is down from Muyrwillumbah for this. Won a trial looking smart and may pay to have in your numbers. NARVAEZ was safely run over in both starts to date. Has since spelled and trialled and expect a better showing.
FROSTY ROCKS returned from a spell and he went straight to the lead winning like a Saturday horse. Second up here with big weight but if he has come on, he should beat these comfortably. FROZEN IN TIME has won past 2 and 3 of past 5. Gets a welcome 3kg claim here and is flying. Should be in the finish. HULK has the good draw and is resuming. He is yet to win in 12 starts but has placed 8 times and is stakes placed. Badly off at the weights but has class.
Tip: FROSTY ROCKS
This race is interesting. WANDABAA resumes here but has a touch of class about her. Did win first-up last campaign and trial was nice and easy. Has won up to BM 75 level. UP TRUMPZ has an awkward gate but he really is flying at present. Terrific run first up in better company when 2nd, his 5th placing in a row. SPACEBOY finally broke through for a well-deserved win. It was in a weak mdn but he knows what to do now and can go on with it.
Tip: UP TRUMPZ
Very even field and it’s no regular type Bm 66. It’s a good field. ULYSSES likes to be on pace and may just have to dash out hard from this gate. Tempo will be solid. He is 3rd up and can play a role in the finish. FLINDERS is getting better as he races, and looks a chance. Should run on as he’s very honest. Placed this grade last start. AESOP’S FABLE is smart and hits the line hard. Tough win last start and her 1.5kg claim helps a lot.
This is another terrific mid-week field. These girls can fly and it’s a deep race. MAGGIE MISS is fit and fast and will surge toward the front and be hard to catch. EARTH SONG by comparison gets back and runs on. Is racing well and is drawn perfectly. ARCHANNA is the boom horse. Up a long way on debut win but hit the line winning that first start like a potential star.
Tough race to evaluate because the best hopes have drawn wide. TCHAIKOVSKY being one of those. If he finds cover he can finish hard. BOMBASAY has a bit of grit and fire about him. Placed this grade rushing late last start. Drawn perfectly. REFORMIST is 3rd up now. Poor run last start but is expected to run better. Could surprise.
ZAUNKONIG gets a weight relief, drawn well enough and is honest at this level. Has placed at past 3 runs. SPIRIT RIDGE is on debut in Australia. Is a stayer from England where he won 2 races. Has trialled very impressively. Tough draw for REGAL STAGE but he know doubt strives forward. Is very honest at this level. Will take catching. Is on home track.
