The Archer and other features

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Being a QLD site we have to run the eye over the ARCHER in ROCKHAMPTON (even if it looks very tough)

STREETS OF AVALON is likely to stalk APACHE CHASE and they have the runs on the board. Both genuine, tough horses who can kick off good tempos. They are the ones that they all have to beat, but they are short enough in the market. I’ve never been heavy in the corner of EMERALD KINGDOM but with a decent ride he can be competitive at $15. He simply got run off his legs fresh over an unsuitable trip. I’m sure they will come out positive and try and lead but I hope they don’t ride him like a motorbike. If the option is there to take a sit on leaders back I hope they take it. Sure to improve 2nd up and 1300m should be ideal for him now. NUMBERS 6-2-1-9

The SANGSTER Adelaide Race 8

I’m an absolute sucker for BROOKLYN HUSTLE and she will get me again here. As usual she got back last start and was forced to come the widest in the straight. The run was good and she ran the 3rd best L200m of the meeting. The run before that in a G1 in Sydney was very good and looks well placed against her own sex in a race where they should run along. I am happy to to cover my bets with SEPTEMBER RUN and BELLA NIPOTINA. Both draw well but will have to use gates a little or risk getting bottled up behind them. Both genuine G1-2 type mares who are also well placed against their own sex.

I’ll have 60% bet on BROOKLYN HUSTLE and 20% of stake a win on the other two to cover bets.
