Wrap Up

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Not sure there will be a blackbook section this week and hard to take much out of the wrap up also as the wet track may or may not be a good guide for future races. Many horses form will be all over the shop on differing surfaces.

I think Matt Dunn may have scratched 4 of his 6 runners and looks as though that may well have been the right play as the track looked very testing with some big margins from first to last.

Race 1:

SIR MOMENTS returned in great shape, a really good training performance and an even better win. Well above avg this bloke!

MONBAZILLAC has promised a lot but not really delivered, if he performs up to this run a win is just around the corner.

 The Wrap Up

Race 2:

We had been following HEART OF MANY and a couple of below par runs made me jump off and it may have been all that was needed, haha. He does seem to enjoy the sting out of the ground.

A few other decent runs but not sure what to make of the race.

Race 3:

AIMEE, SAGATONA and GOODBYE KEVIN only had a head between them in a great finish. I thought SAGATONA had it wrapped up from a cracking Browne ride but AIMEE really threw the head out and wanted the win. All three ran really well.

More than happy to back up on GRAPEVINE next time out, completely forget she went around.

Race 4:

TINTO and PARIS MATCH had a great battle with the local coming out on top. They handled the conditions best but as stated before be a bit forgiving to some of the others. ASADAUSKAITE had no luck and will get a lot closer when she gets to 2000m+.

Race 5:

Well a one act affair- SRIKANDI ran along up front and kept improving! Looks a very handy horse.

LA PEITA finished off nice and PLATINUM ROCKER will be much better suited from here on in at the weights against these horses.

Race 6:

DANCES ON STARS was a level above here. A good ride and a great win. Can win anotherrace over the carnival.

As expected BENNYS BUTTONS did the usual and put himself in the race to fight it out. He is very honest.

Gee FINAL CRESCENDO ran out of his skin in a cracking effort, he looks to be suited in races like the eyeliner later in the carnival.

Race 7:

MR O’CEIRIN looked to have it shot to bits when he booted at the top of the straight but STREAMA had the class to peg him back. She was well backed and good to see a lot of punters didn’t take notice of the Guy Walter interview where he said she doesn’t want it wet.

Great runs from PRECEDENCE and MORIARTY while JUNOOB is the main horse to follow, a cracking run looking for 2000m on a drier track.

Race 8:

ENQUARE was ridden upside down and I’d forgive, just the wrong tactics.

Although he had a tough run I can’t fall for WHISKEY ALLROUND again.

DOTHRAKI was far too good and all honours to him.

PALMERA LAD and COSTA VIVA were real eye-catchers who just want further, keep them safe.
