The G1 Furphy Goodwood

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Have to give the Furphy Goodwood a split decision as a better race than the 10,000 but not a lot between them. Furphy should maybe be the Brissyraces site beer of choice? If nobody else beats them to it. Not a bad story about how the beer got it’s name actually but that’s for another day. Let’s find a winner. 

With DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR pushing forward and SAVATOXL holding him out there should be a decent tempo but with them being stablemates they shouldn’t go silly. 

GYTRASH is every chance of landing in the box seat and if the splits come he has an electric turn of foot. His last few preps have been outstanding and this looks an ideal target.

It also looks perfect for BOHEMOTH and he always run well for Williams. He should land one off the fence in about the 3rd pair and sure to be one of the strongest late here. Multiple G1 winner over 1400m but his fresh record is outstanding (6:4:1:0) and I think he can run them down late.

I think this BEAU ROSSA is a proper horse and my only query is the wierd prep he’s been given. 1000m to 1300m to 1600m and back to 1200m (now stays at 1200m). Personally I’d have freshened and looked at one lead up into a Stradbroke. He might just be that good he can still win.
