Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, takes a look at today’s thoroughbred racing and singles out his three top horse racing tips, from Gosford. Good luck, punters!
Pretty even race if you go through the form. How it will be run appears the key. I suspect FAIRY ME HOME will jump well then rider Tommy Berry will attempt to ease and slot into 3rd spot. The filly PELLICLE, courtesy of the rails, probably finds the front and makes sure the tempo is useful. Fairy Me Home has a grinding finishing kick and is 2nd up here. So should slowly but surely wear her down. I’ll quinella them.
From the 4 gate JAZZLAND should jump and run. I certainly have him mapped to do that and I hope Tommy Berry ups the ante with 800m to go and gets them all off the bit chasing him. If he does all that, this bloke may just race away and win by many lengths. I know SEEINGISBELIEVING is on the rise and last start winning a Class 1 by being near pace and running away, carrying weight, suggests he is the biggest threat. But really looking forward to seeing how this emerging talent, Jazzland, runs in this from the front.
Back in May, on debut in a maiden at Taree, a flashy chestnut called NOSTRO RE was produced to no fanfare and no avalanche of support. Which shocked given that he jumped well from his wide-ish gate, drove to the lead and the further the contest went the further he raced away to win by. In the end it was a smidgen shy of 6 lengths with his ears pricked. Up in grade to Class 2 level here and goes from bush to provincial class as well so this will test. But he won so convincingly last start I have to be on him here.
