Hay Now;(5.6L) 7th ($17 – $6); dropped back at the start,made nice headway along the rails when severely checked, game over after that. Did well to finish where he did.
Doomben Track Good, Rosehill Track Good and Flemington Track Soft; Flemington race 4 Quick Defence($4.80) this race is devoid of serious chances and this horse probably has the class edge on these, dropping way back in class here. Handles all conditions and given the right run should be too good. Rosehill race 4 Kendalman($15) beautifully weighted here after the claim(52.5kgs) and dropping back from a class 3 to a class 2. Second to She Knows last start which has franked that form since (second to In Good Time) very hard to beat. Flemington race9 Masculino($14) no guts no glory is the old saying, but this horse is a serious chance of upstaging the favourite here. Meets Iconoclasm 4kgs better and drawn the 1 gate, he does like to roll so all things being real he should be up there. Also if the moisture stays his chances are even more enhanced. Rosehill race 8 Hay Now($26) she will settle back, handles all conditions and track, distance no problem and the 56kgs won’t deter her. I Am Serious is favourite what the? we had her as Our Best last start and she ran a shocker, so we will take the $26 on offer. We were going to put Noire in Or Best today but the dogs are backing her this morning, so we will just keep a close eye on Magic Alibi. Tom Melbourne, we know he is a bridesmaid, but our thinking today is take him to the front and let him roll this is not a strong Doomben Cup he has the best overall form in the race. Last week we had a pretty successful day with Our Best Our Peaky Blinders saluting and Aqua Vite beaten a flared nostril. Some great exotics SR2 Trifecta $3,500 and Doomben race 2 Trifecta $650 and more an 15 winners in our top 4, a pretty good day all round. Lets not sugar coat some of these races today they wouldn’t look out of place in a midweek programme( hence we have gone wide in the Main Quaddies) so lets tread wearily. A cracking day here in Queensland, so on that note have a great weekend and “GOOD LUCK” to all horsebuck$ followers.
