Just a look at the two feature races this weekend. A FULL preview will be up on Thursday for all the weekend races.




2yr old classic:

Looks a very even edition of the 2yr old race.

A lot of speed on paper and most of it drawn wide so expecting this to be a fast run race where most get their chance but luck in running will play a big part. Been a fan of CZARSON and have had an early bet on him and see no real reason for me to jump off. He has continued to get better every time he has stepped out whether it be a race or trial he just gets better and that is the type of horse you want in these juvenile races. He will push forward and has the option to hold the front or let a couple cross him and take a sit. Reckon he has even surprised the stable and a live chance here.

EXHILARATES is another who has improved out of sight each time she steps out, her career best was last Saturday when she got the gun run and blew them away at this track over 1100m. She has drawn to probably be three wide with cover and all she has to do is handle the back up.

It’s very easy to make a case for DUBIOUS, winner of the breeders G3 on debut before having three months between runs and winning at EF with 59kg over 1000m after being posted three wide the trip. He drew the best out of all the main hopes and he should improve lengths with that run under his belt. He is the horse they all have to beat.

*Easy to make a case for many horses and it’s a very even year but they are the three I’ll be focusing on. Likely play a quinella as well.

On Top:  4-DUBIOUS $6  +  7-CZARSON $7

Next Best:  8-EXHILARATES $5.50



3yr Guineas:

Looks a pretty skinny race here. They will go handlebars down with BOOMSARA from the wide gate but he did that last start, went fast and used a lot of petrol to get across and without a cheap section he still gave a kick to run the 2nd fastest 4-200m of the race. Even from the wide gate he will lead these for a long way!

OUTBACK BARBIE has been excellent all prep and to be honest I just think she is a better horse than them. The run two back behind Zoustyle was terrific and she was clearly the best late. Last start she was back and wide and held up in the straight, it was a complete forgive but still run the quickest split 6-400m and the 200-home. JMac goes on ans she’s the one to beat.

Of the others I feel THE FIRE TRAP is a little underrated and the blinkers go on which might well spark him up. Gets a good gate and the run last start was good enough to land in the money at a decent price.

*Backing Outback Barbie.

On Top: 8-OUTBACK BARBIE $2.60

Hardest To Beat:  1-BOOMSARA
