TRACK: Soft 5
1- So You Win: Waller/Schofield
Won at track last start over same distance. Goes up a kilo despite minor class rise. Carries a kilo more and looks to have plenty of pace on to suit. Scratched from 1900m event possibly to avoid the clash with Furore.
5 – Smiling Manalito Waller/ McEvoy
Drops to 53kg from 58kg gets back and makes run with stablemate. Clearly chasing the Waterhouse bunny Pandemonium.
2 – Pandemonium
Sets the pace front running to turn under the 57kg. Folded like a bad suit over the 1200 first up and a real query for a gai horse stepping up 350 in distance.
1 – So You Win EACH WAY
5- Smiling Manalito EACH WAY
Box 1,5 QUINELLA
2 – Pandemonium LAY
2 – Lenningrad Waterhouse/Clark
Dual acceptor that has won two barrier trials with Josh Parr riding. Tim Clark goes on and this horse has been primed with a win over the 1035m. Clarks last eight rides for stable have resulted in 4 wins two placings and two misses.
4 – Stryke Rock Waller/Bowman
Whilst Waller has a strong hand in the race Bowman goes on this for the famous Ingham cerise. Would suggest last prep was education and that this is the start of its racing career Bowman rode it at its first start and then hopped off to let an apprentice ride next start. It is a gelding and should be thereabouts at the 150m mark as it races on pace.Won a barrier trial coming into this. This horse has been unloved in the betting getting out at all starts. Would suggest it could jump around 5.5/6 tomorrow if it were a winning hope.
2 – Lenningrad WIN
4 – Stryke EACH WAY
5 – Planets Princess Waller/Avdulla
Has unleashed two sub 34 final 600m sectionals at last two runs at the provincials. Even carrying 59kg drops 2kgs. Appears to be a well mapped out prep. Really like a mare in form.
7 – Mulu Magic Smith/King
Stepping up in distance on the back of two provincial placings. Only win was with a female jockey. A better jockey goes on than last start. Jockey and trainer combined for a ride this week for a 4th on a longshot.
5 – Planets Princess WIN
7 – Mulu Magic EACH WAY
1 – Marquita
We have some mail on this runner from stable. $5.50 into $3.50 so it’s a bit late for followers but should be running over the top of the leaders late.
1 – Marquita WIN
2 – Honeywine
These two looked to be the horses chasing Furore home, but with scratching, we’ll just be backing both each way and a quinella to close out our betting.
1 – Multifacets EACH WAY
