Bon Amis;(2.5L) 5th ($7 – $5); outstanding run considering the torrid run he endured. Three wide entire trip struck the lead at the distance but weakened to finish fifth.
Sullivan Bay;(2.1L) 5th ($10 – $12); had a beautiful run behind the leader, moved into the race at the distance not god enough on the day.
Gracida;(4.6L) 7th ($6.50 – $8); slipped in the tie up stall, vetted but allowed to start. Replated at the barrier also, not ideal. Sat behind the leaders was there to win in the straight but didn’t go on.
Sunshine Coast track GOOD; Randwick track GOOD; Caulfield track GOOD; Our Best; Morphettville race 2 Fox Swift($12) this galloper was desperately unlucky last start when unplaced behind Miss Vixen, we expect Linda Meech to get the best out of him today. Randwick race 4 Bon Amis($7) another galloper that didn’t have a lot of luck last start and only went down .5L to Princess Posh meets her 1.5kgs better here. Does tend to get back in his races but can unleash with clear running, Shinn should have him powering with a full head of steam at the distance. Randwick race 10 Ghisoni($10) this mare is chockfull of class and is a pistol fresh, would like to see her racing closer here being fresh, she is in very well here only 2kgs above the limit. Bowman should be pumped after winning on the great mare WINX and if she is in clear running at the distance WATCH OUT. Sunshine Coast race 9 Gracida($6.50) this galloper loves the track and distance and has an outstanding record to boot. He will be right up on the steel and handles all conditions, we think he is SUPER VALUE here. Caulfield race 9 Sullivan Bay($10) this mare is not a great weight carrier and with only 51.5kegs today we envisage her highballing it out front. We know she can be elusive but today is the day. Randwick has an outstanding programme today the Group one Coolmore Legacy is a very good race Dixie Blossoms is the key here drawn wide but she gets back any how, if the track is playing fair she will steam home over them, if not then Alizee might be the one as she can race closer. Back both and quinella maybe. All things being equal Almandin should be winning the Sydney Cup, 57kgs is a gimme. The Oaks is a lottery the kiwi’s have a strong hand here, we think Savvy Coup is the best of them. Last week we had a blowout in Our Best we are set to atone today. We did manage to get the early QUADDIE in Melbourne ($1,000) and a nice TRIFECTA in Toowoomba($1300) Morendi/Honey Toast/First Crush and 15 winners in our top four with 7 on top, not a bad result all round. So on that positive note have a great weekend and “GOOD LUCK” to all horsebuck$ followers.
