Race 1 – eleven:25AM SUPPORTERHUB HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
The Autumn Sun beat Royal Celebration in this race last 12 months and Chris Waller is plotting the same path to the JJ Atkins with 5. Reloaded. The Snitzel colt became top notch on debut prevailing at Randwick’s Anzac Day meeting. He turned into given lots of time to land up, with Punters Intelligence revealing two eleven.05 splits from the 600-400 and 400-two hundred. His ultimate 600m of 33.87s turned into lengths superior to the second one located Disruptor (albeit after touring huge). Everything we’ve seen him do thus far, even his trials, endorse that he’ll be plenty greater secure out to 1400m and a mile. At first look I idea barrier one is probably a touch awkward for him but suspect he’ll have the tactical velocity to use the draw. It’s a small field after scratchings too. His tick-over trial for the reason that his debut was strong. He’s untapped and the horse to overcome.
Dangers: 7. Prince Fawaz comes right here a maiden however he shouldn’t be. Tommy Berry put his hand up after Newcastle closing start where the Anthony Cummings-educated teenager was set an impossible task from the rear of the sector. Prince Fawaz rattled home into 1/3 and had no right to get as near as he did. His final effort prior to that within the G1 Champagne Stakes turned into additionally meritorious, where handiest Castelvecchio had a faster last 600m (and closing 200m) cut up. Blinkers pass on for the first time and appear to settle within the first 1/2 here. Three. Discharged was courageous on debut to finish a period far from Reloaded before franking that shape by way of beating Kordia at Canterbury. Kordia has considering the fact that gained himself. 6. Sea Of Life wasn’t beaten ways by means of the proficient Erno on debut despite protecting ground and has also trialed properly considering that.
Race 2 – 12:00PM TAB HIGHWAY CLASS three HANDICAP (1000 METRES)
three. Lifesaver is the pony with the runs at the board so surprised he has arise the chances he has. The five-12 months-vintage isn’t any stranger to the Highway collection having run in 5 of them. He has gained one of them, which turned into first up closing time in, and located in any other 3. One of those changed into a very near leave out in the back of Another Sin lower back in mid-2017. His handiest Highway failure turned into on a soft music, a floor he without a doubt doesn’t revel in. He is 8:three-three-1 on correct decks and 5:zero-0-0 on tender tracks. He has never missed the quinella sparkling in 4 runs and loves the 1000m trip. Drawn soft and Josh Parr takes the journey. All of the geese line up for him and might handiest see this Helmet gelding running well for the Dunn solid. Have to be with him on the rate.
Dangers: We nonetheless don’t truely recognise how right 6. Bombdiggity is. With simply three begins under his belt, prevailing two of them, the Zoustar three-yr-vintage tackles this after prevailing at the Sapphire Coast 10 weeks ago. That changed into with 60kg and the time stacked up nicely against the BM58 at the equal day. 5. Major Danger is precisely that when dominating the Hawkesbury Highway final day out from the the front. There is greater pace right here however he’s going well. 9. Vernazza is the more fancied of Matt Dunn’s team being the one with upside. Won properly first up and has scope to preserve enhancing. Ran in a indexed race two back which says some thing for the strong’s opinion of her. 13. Madame Pauline has had a long spell (66 weeks) so satisfied to just watch her pass round first up given how well she is discovered within the market. Talented mare, but.
Not surprised to peer 6. Frenzied come immediately to town on the back of an fantastic win at Kembla Grange ultimate begin. It has been a speedy rise for the 3-year-vintage having debuted in overdue April over 1300m. He changed into most effective getting warmed up there before dominating over the mile at Wyong, leading from begin to complete. It turned into then 1/3 up out to 2000m and after being shuffled lower back inside the run, the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-educated gelding picked himself as much as win from a seemingly impossible function. It changed into a C1 on the provincials but he had no proper to win from in which he changed into within the run. Would have appreciated for him to have drawn a touch wider, allowing him to roll to the the front. Last start he wasn’t short to muster and a wall of horses had been quick to pass him. Could see this horse sneaking through the back door into the Queensland Derby.
Dangers: 2. Nobu become explosive winning closing start. His final 600m turned into a whopping six lengths superior to the next first-rate inside the race (which become Duchess Of Lennox and she ran well at Doomben subsequently). He rises 6.5kg from that win, but. The Chris Waller-skilled galloper has been up given that early December, and that protected a experience to NZ for their Derby, however is flourishing. 5. Baaed has come into his own out to staying trips. Seven of his 9 begins have been within the united states of america but that’s no longer an uncommon set-up for a Bjorn Baker-educated horse. Having won nicely at Hawkesbury final start, bowling along in the front, he merits a shot at something tougher. 15. Brilliance Squared is a maiden but ran 0.33 to Frenzied remaining start and looks dangerously weighted with just 49kg. Patience is running out with three. Carif. Might need 2400m.
