Rain looks the biggest issue for the weekend, makes it a bit tough doing a preview Thursday when rain is predicted Friday/Saturday.

Track was excellent last week so hoping for more of the same.

Feel free to share with racing mates via link/email etc.


NEDS Fat Odds sq


Race 1:

Everything points to MONACO SNOB but if the rain is around I’m prepared to watch on here. Ordinary race.



Race 2:

Really interested in this race, mainly because Mrs brissyraces (AKA ‘The Handbrake’) has a very small share in READY TO PARTY and he is a really nice colt. As much as $11 was bet which is just crazy about him off two excellent trials. He is a half to G3 placed Harrier jet and he is by More Than Ready, runs well here. The one they all have to beat is GUNTANTES, from the same family as Excellantes, Funtantes etc that Qlders would know very well, they usually run early and he has trialled like a ready made two year old.




Race 3:

Don’t like this race as much. Gollan’s pair look like real two yr olds and both more than handy off their trials. Problem they have both drawn wide and it can be mission impossible trying to cross. I give them a chance of doing that and winning but both under $3 means I’m not keen to gamble.



Race 4:

LULU EXPRESS has progressed well and comes off a good win last start at Doomben. Edmonds have done a very good job with her placing her to go through the grades and this is another good target.

MR BELLAGIO was 3rd and beaten 4.6L last start but the run was a lot better than that, the winner has won again and he was wide the trip but good through the line. From a good gate hr can find the back of LULU EXPRESS and be hard to beat.

SKY LAKE was good over the 1200m when winning at first start for Munce. Gets out to the more suitable trip and could land 1/1 here. Might be the value around $7 and should be strong through the line.

If the rain comes BRYNEICH could be the smoky at $10, liked the last effort and wet track would help.

*Not that keen, this is more even then it looks.

On Top: 1-MR BELLAGIO $4.50




Race 5:

NICCANOVA probably looks the best of the day but $2.30 isn’t a steal. He is a very good horse who has had issues but the last run was excellent and he just looks to be screaming for the 1350m and possibly longer now. Rain no issue, just doesn’t want to spot the leader too big of a start.

FIERY HEIGHTS is the leader and in good form for Lockwood.


Hardest To Beat:  2-FIERY HEIGHTS

Race 6:

Potential rain has just put a line through this race for mine!



Race 7:

Thought the $6.50 was a steal early for PIZONIE and that come straight into $4. Reckon he is a handy one and hasn’t had a lot of luck being caught wide a couple and still liked what I’ve seen of him late. He can lead or park outside lead and Doomben should suit perfectly.

DEFENCE MISSILE is one of the most consistent types we have up here and he was a dominant 5L winner on a slow track two back and backed it up with a strong win at the SC. Good gate and a claim for Gallagher are ideal and lands in the money again.

Like KEIRABELLA as a horse but am blown away she is fav in this off a win in a poor maiden where she led at a slow tempo. I have her as a false fave and feel she should be twice the price but hope she runs well for the stable.

*Happy to back PIZONIE.

On Top: 7- PIZONIE $4

Hardest To Beat: 1-DEFENCE MISSILE

Race 8:

Had this down to DIVINE DICE, HINGUS ROSE and DIAMONDS ARE but feel DIVINE DICE is the one who jumps on the bunny and can give a kick. Been in good form and even though Tegan might have to work to cross she should be able to get it ok after that and expecting him to be in front for a long way!

HINGUS ROSE isn’t great out of the gates and is a chance of being posted here. If Lacy can get cover she will be strong through the line as always. Also a little confusing throwing the apprentice on when they can’t claim their whole allowance.

DIAMONDS ARE will be winning soon, just feel from the gate he will have the flashing light on without winning.

PRU’S ANGEL is becoming hard to vcatch but sting out will help her and she can be in the finish.

*Taking the $6 DIVINE DICE

On Top: 3-DIVINE DICE $6
