MR6 H1 Dollar For Dollar($6); we feel Group 3 is his optimum level good run last start when sat wide and only 1.35 L from the winner. He will pounce on the speed here from gate4 and be extremely hard to hold out.
Dollar For Dollar($8); 5th beaten 4.5L led into the straight kicked clear then when challenged found nothing.
BR9 H11 Savwell($4.20); not the greatest odds but should get a nice run mid field and he can finish off powerfully. This is not overly strong and he just might prove too strong.
Savwell($4.80); 9th beaten 2.6L back in 10th place until the straight then hung up for a brief moment then ran n okay but never likely
BR8 H7 Hi I’m Back($15); he should roll up just behind the speed here from gate 2(all things being equal) this is a very good field of sprinters hence the great weight and big price. He invariably peaks 3rd run in and this distance is perfect he will be there when the whips are cracking.
Hi I’m Back($21); 6th beaten 2.5L always same in the run ran well but a little too slick for him this time.
SR9 H7 Catesby($14); maybe the key to this horse is to keep him fresh he certainly likes the 1300m and does best on a “DRY” track although he has been placed 2 from 4 on soft. Beat Sexy Eyes at his last start and that horse has won twice since. Trialled up nicely when beating Test The World and with 56.5kgs after a claim we think he is well in here.
Catesby($14); 3rd beaten 0.L fought them off at the distance only to be nabbed right on he line great run.
Doomben Track Good; Rosehill Track Good; Sandown Track Good; Redzel I thought was a great 5th in the Group one sprint last Saturday in a race dominated by back markers, he fought on and was raising another effort near the line. Pete Snowden says he is not a champion and fair enough but he is a top notch sprinter and a lot of the smarties say he is vulnerable well of course he is he puts himself right on the speed and is a sitting shot and when he leads easily and dictates they say he had an easy time of it. The horse has a winning strike rate of 50% and over $15 million in the bank “ENOUGH SAID”. I will be following the English horse Fleet Review when he races back home, he just might have a nice win in him at very good odds. Shillelagh if she darted through that gap at the distance instead of it closing I think the result of the Group one McKinnon stakes would have been different. There is an analogy in racing they were searching for the “fast lane” well that’s all well and good but they all end up in a bunch liked schooled mullet searching for the same run and climbing over each others backs and never getting out, it has become tiresome. Maybe we should take a leaf out of the way they race overseas. Last week it was another good day for exotic players with 2 first fours, 5 trifectas, 12 quinella/exactas and 18 winners in our top 4selections for multi runner players with some nice odds available. On that note have a great weekend an “GOOD LUCK” to all www.horsebucks.com.au
