Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, previews Wednesday’s Warwick Farm meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 7 races. Good luck, punters!
Track Condition: Good 4
Rail Position: out 3m entire course
JACK THE LAD has the perfect inside draw and probably hunts up and site just behind the speed. Was a game, eye-catching 3rd this grade on debut – actually that race was probably a little tougher than this – and with that run under his belt, he looks to improve into the money again here. Brenton Avdulla rides this one.
SELEQUE is a stalemate of Jack’s above and was also strong at only two starts being close runner-up each time. Hughie rides this and it can come with a rush.
The Gai and Adrian trained ECHO POINT should lead and with the benefit of one good run already under the belt, rates highly too.
Tip: JACK THE LAD
Lots of chances here despite it being a small field. ARTIC races for the first time here and after two trials may be ready to run well. Did nothing in first trial but wasn’t really asked too, however, last trial was shaken up late and responded to win the trial. Is suited to this affair.
DENIKI is going to go out hard. Raced twice thus far, both times last start prep and showed enough to suggest this time up, with a neat trial under the belt, he looks a threat.
NEWSREADER could just go bang. Also only raced twice last campaign but both times in better grade than this and ran home well both times. Mature now and could just go bang. Has claims.
A difficult race to assess. A couple of older more experienced runners, both in form being COTERIE and SUAVE line up against a boomed galloper of two starts.
Coterie was on pace and kept fighting on when 4th to Suave and meets him 2.5kg better. Both have major chances.
BUCHAREST is unbeaten in two easier runs to date but both times looked a star in the making. Has pace to sit just behind speed then accelerate. This is harder but is smart. Big show.
PRESSURE looks well in here. was ridden to the lead ina strong BM 78, on a Saturday last start over 2000m. Was still in front at the 200m then class told. was beaten only 3 lengths. This is a few lengths easier and being 100m shorter should help a great deal also. Respect all that.
FRENZIED no doubt leads this lot up this time. He did that up the line last start and hung tough to win. It was a slightly weaker race but he ran it well.
PRINCE OF ARRAGON is close to a win. Is very fit and is suited here. Ran home strongly to just fail behind Frenzied last start. That was a leader’s track that day and meets him .5kg better here. Will look the winner at some stage.
Good betting race. Off the inside draw, you’d expect bush star AL MAH HAHA to run boldly here. He is in The Kosciusko field and as such, should be too good for these. Is resuming though and last campaign was runner-up four times on the bounce. Deserves a breakthrough.
Winning form is always best form and we get that in bucket loads here with the impressive MISS FOX. First time to the city for her but she’s won past four runs and has a quality about her.
PLAQUETTE is smart too and she can really run on. Did that when resuming last start and looked back in even better form. Watch betting.
Tip: AL MAH HAHA
Finding the winner of this may be tough as they are a pretty even bunch. On home track, the consistent SNIPPY FOX who is very fit also, may take beating. Drawn to be there in the right spot all the way.
JOVIALITY is smart and getting smarter. Has won past two runs coming home from off the pace like a steam train. Now, both races were easier than this but she did it like she was a class act.
GIOVANNA RUN drops back a little in class here following a fair run, but a failed one last start when 7th. Did win maiden prior to that looking sharp. Can place.
LEADERBOARD is a Kiwi, and travelling companion of some stars. Generally likes it a little longer and is resuming here but trialled very well last week. May surprise at big odds and should rocket home.
PHEMONOE is smart late. Has wheels and is 3rd up. Bound to be mid-field to the bend then will charge home late. Watch the market moves.
This is a massive rise in grade for the lightly raced AMERICAN WHISKEY who did lead all the way to win maiden at Bendigo in very good fashion last start. Watch market. Has claims.
