BR6 H3 Tumbler($4.80);good mare who has had her share of issues over the seasons. Ran well last prep(although winless) in her 4 starts all in Listed or Group class. She is resuming here and is a pistol first up and in very well with 54kegs after the claim, she will get back ( plenty of toe here) and as long as C.Bayliss can get tothe outside at the distance and rockin’ n rollin’ she will be EXTREMELYhard to hold out.
Tumbler($4.80 – $5); 2nd($1.90) beaten 0.8L, settled well back and made a lot of ground out wide but ran out of time, she ran well.
MR9 H2 Theanswermyfriend($6);gate (8) is a little tricky but he has the speed to cross and lead(Arbeitsam will press forward) and is a machine third up. He is a quality galloper at this level and certainly relishes the distance if he gets a break on them in the straight it should be game set and match.
Theanswermyfriend($6 – $6); 9th beaten 3.6L; missed the start and sped through and then restarined in 4th place and then wouldn’t settle end of story.
BR1 H5 Red Phantom($11);this horse invariably does zilch in his first 2 runs afte a break and then fires up. He will settle about midfield, track and distance suits and the 59kgs won’t bother him in this class. We expect him to be rallying late.
Red Phantom($11 – $11); 3rd($2.90) beaten 3.2L, 9th place at the 400m and ran on okay,beatencomfortably though.
Flow($5.50);this horse struggles a little at this level with 3 placings from 4 attempts but we feel this is his opportunity to put a Listed race on his record with 56kgs and definitely his preferred distance. Second up is no issue for him and races best when on or just behind the speed. Bowman is also a key factor here so GIDDYUP!!!
Flow($5.50 – $4.20); 2nd($1.60) beaten 2.5L, led them up and looked to be doing it easily but the bridesmaid once again at this level.
Brisbane Track Good, Sydney Track Good and Melbourne Track Good; in the words of the famous rock song” Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad” certainly applied when Emphasis($8.80) and Just Hifaluting($10 – $7) got up in the shadows to make it 2 from 3 in Our Best Bets last week HAPPY DAYS!!!!!!! Plus 17 winners in our top four selections along with 2 first fours, 7 Trifectas and 12 quinellas so plenty for all players Hallelujah!!! Our story on odds on favourites rang true with the first 5 odds on pops were rolled ODDS ON LOOK ON for sure. Today is all about having a go and Goodonya mate so Happy Australia Day to all players out there. Would have loved to put Second Bullet in Our Best today but just weary of the other old timer in that race namely Lamborghini the 51kgs had me a little apprehensive so let’s see how that race pans out. Enjoy your racing and “GOOD LUCK” to all players from Horsebuck$
