SYDNEY early selections

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I will be getting to the big preview of Brisbane with what looks a great days racing but thought it would be worth getting up a look at a few selections throughout the weekend in SYDNEY:

(I will be really trying to get back to more interviews with trainers on the site in the coming month but simply haven’t had time or it just hasn’t suited, so just hang tight)


Sydney Race 1 No.1 – VEUVELICIOUS

*No prices up as I type but anything over $3 would entice me.

*Better for the Sydney outing and I think Randwick and 1600m are both more to her liking.Denman filly

*The Scratch Me Lucky form is holding up after running 2nd in the G1 last week.

*I will admit the 58kg is not ideal but feel she could be good enough.



Sydney Race 3 No.4 – MEMORIAL

*Snowden had kept telling us she was a very good horse even after her very ordinary run two starts ago.

*He re-tinkered the gear and she ran out of her skin in the Slipper.

*That is the strongest formline here and wet is not a concern.

High Chaparral colt


Sydney Race 6 No.2 – LUCIA VALENTINA

*Try to avoid short prided fav’s in these big races but she simply does look to good for her rivals and between $2.50-$3 looks fair.

*Wet track no concern but the big plus is the fact she has been flying all prep with this in mind. Comes her 100% airborn while a few of the main dangers from NZ are trying to recapture their form from a month or two ago in their big races.



Sydney Race 7 No.1 – VOLUESE DE COEURS   $13

*Look I know The Offer looks the horse to beat and I admit that will be a task, but I see this as being a massive test of stamina, there should be a solid enough speed and on a heavy track there will be some with a stitch at the 1200m!!

*The BMW was an on pace affair and not too concerned with her run, I actually thought it was pretty good.

*She is without doubt the best stayer in this field and like nearly every staying test we have the ex-overseas stayers are superior. Willing to give her another chance and throw her in exotics at very least at the $13.
