Race-by-race tips and preview for Gosford on Thursday
Track Soft 5 and Rail True
Race 1 CLASS 1 HCP (1600m)
Had to get past progressive subway three year old 1. Magadan in the opener with a strong second win in the city. I was asked to carry 60.5kg here from a more difficult draw but was aiming for bigger goals than the others.
Driven: keep 3. Zakiyya, who resisted a race drift to do best and claim his maiden third with the provincials; in improving the country filly 4. Stormy Witness next best prices.
How to put it: to win Magadan. Odd and Even: Opportunities.
Race 2 2YO MAIDEN PLATE (1200m)
Fascinating youthful racing here and money will of course have a big say. Capitalist filly 3. Kaizad looks ready to debut with blinkers on. In the second of two classes for the Waterhouse and Bott stables in the Zone he ran a good time home.
Driven: Debutant trapeze artist Colt 2. handle stuck behind a Smart on the second of two attempts to OK; while 7. Hell Dancer can improve from that first run on rough ground if stuck late in the worst part of the track; And 4. Restonica is in the next line.
How to play it: to win Kaizad. Odd and Even: Splits.
Race 3 3YO & UP MAIDEN PLATE (1200m)
Talented capitalist three-year-old 2. Cappelletti It was a good thing to be beaten first when you made a mistake early in the race and lost valuable ground before storming home late. Carries the same weight from the inside here during key gear changes and just needs a definite bang on them out of the corner.
Driven: Provincial four year old 1. Hedge funds boxed from the front okay second but more effective from speed as he showed when resuming although this is a tricky speed card from the draw; while debutant 5. Moongara can run into small money.
How to play it: to win Cappelletti. Odd and Even: Splits.
Race 4 4YO & UP MAIDEN HCP (1100m)
Another small field of older sprinters is forming well for the Extreme Choice mare 5. Extremely Ruffles who debuts behind two controlled subway trials. Should get a nice track with cover and is bred to like soft ground.
Driven: Expect a much better run on the second start as you improve 2. Free enterprise which was a notable market drifter here 16 days ago before going a mile off speed. Another lightly driven improver is 3. Amadi who worked at home quite in a handy country girl; while 6. She is Jessie occurs from the country level but becomes bright after the 3 kg claim.
How to play it: Extremely frilly to win. Odd and Even: Splits.
