Turbull stakes and Epsom handicap previews

Print Friendly

Let’s just have a look at the FEATURES in each state- The Epsom (1600m SYD) and THE TURNBULL (2000m MELB)Tatts

 

THE EPSOM- 1600m Handicap- Randwick:

More than enough speed here to think every horse gets a chance.

The form I am looking at is the Dato where LIDARI comes out of. Fiorente was the winner on that occasion which is a good pointer, Bass Strait also has come out since and won. That was run at WFA and LIDARI drops to 53kg in this. Robl takes the ride from the good gate (7) and at $15 I think he could be the value.

TOYDINI is one of my fav’s and is the horse to beat. He was dominant in the Cameron at Newcastle and drops a few kg into this. Not sure about the form from that race but this bloke is good.

BOBAN the other ‘up and comer’ who has no weight and is airborne. His acceleration is exceptional and he can go close.

I feel SACRED FALLS will improve sharply here and must be respected from the Waller camp 3rd up.

**Great race many chances I have not mentioned as well.

EPSOM NUMBERS:

11- LIDARI

6- TOYDINI

10- BOBAN

3- SACRED FALLS

 

 

THE TURBULL  2000m Flemington:

Just about the best race every spring and again delivers here!

Nothing would honestly surprise here..

This is the first time we will see Boss put PUISSANCE DE LUNE into a race this spring. From gate 1 he will sit up near the pace and take a stack of beating. He has taken improvement each run and out to the 2000m at Flemington expect to see the best of him.

ROYAL DESCENT has really shocked me. I did not expect her to be as good this time in taking on the older horses etc, but she has been outstanding. This is a great stepping stone for her and she is the biggest danger to the grey.

FIORENTE was super in the DATO but Nash may have to spot them a little start here from 14. The horse can still win as the pace should be on but it is not ideal.

Outside of these if you are looking for value I’d expect SUPER COOL, SILENT ACHIEVER and FAWKNER to be worth thought for first 4’s ..

TURNBULL NUMBERS:

7- PUISSANCE DE LUNE

16- ROYAL DESCENT

6- FIORENTE

4- SUPER COOL
