Streets Of Avalon(2.3L) 2nd/$1.65; CRITICAL THINKING (L.SCR.)

 SR9 H3 Paret($4.40); good run first up and tends to race better second up. He has a very good record at this course, whereto in the run? probably just off the pace from gate 5. He is a nice horse in a race that suits and he handles all conditions.

Paret($4.40 – $4); 5th beaten 1.5L, got further back than we anticipated ran home okay from 9th at the 400m.

MR8 H11 Fundamentalist($6.50); this filly is an on pacer and she is drawn beautifully here and should get a nice trail up behind Tin Hat and Scottish Rogue. She is a classy filly that fires first up.

Fundamentalist ($6.50 – $5); 4th beaten 1.9L, was 3rd and 4th on the fence the entire trip, Tin Hat contorlled the race in front and was far to good on the day.

BR3 H6 Boom Chicka Boom($7.50); drawn perfectly here from gate 1 and has the speed to take full advantage, he meets Connoisseur 3.5kgs better here for a short half head defeat last start. Meet Mr. Taylor is the odds on favourite and also likes to roll forward but he has drawn gate 10 and feel our bloke has enough speed to keep him out.

Boom Chicka Boom ($7.50 – $7); 9th beaten 7.2L, sat 3rd on the fence tried hard for a while in the straight, but Meet Mr. Taylor is aclassy short course sprinter and was simply too good.

BR5 H2 Desert Man($7); forget his last run at the Gold Coast he is much better suited here and from the good draw(4) should be able to get the gun run again. He is still nicely weighted after the claim and just might give them the short back and sides at the distance.

Desert Man ($7 – $6.50); 8th beaten 3.9L, we are thinking the fence was not the place to be last Saturday, if not he had every conceiveable chance.

BR4 H1 Upstart Pride($14); I am putting this bloke in here even from his wide gate(10) he has Divine Dice drawn inside him(8) to take him across as long as he doesn’t get into a speed battle like last start, they ran cracking time and the winner Snoopy had the drop on them.But to his credit he battled on to finish 4th as long as he can take  a sit or lead on his lonesome he will be there at the finish.

Upstart Pride ($14 – $21); 8th beaten 4.8L, ran too hard in front maybe a senior rider.


Eagle Farm Track Good, Rosehill Track Good, Caulfield Track Good; we wrote a piece last week about Second Bullet’s chances he ran 5th but the way the race was run and from where he was he had virtually no chance. He is in again today but a shorter quote but feel he should get the chocolates here. “Life is like a box of choclates you never know what your gonna get” well so is numbered track ratings SERIOUSLY!!! watched a meeting the other day in Victoria the track rating was a Good 4 on a hot summer’s day, well to put it in the old lingo the track was DEAD and stayed that way the entire meeting. My bleat is mark it in the form summaries as DEAD they rate the tracks in N.Z. as dead. You wonder when a horse shows up on a track rated a Good4 AND DOES NOTHING THEN TURNS UP ON A GOOD3 AND BOLTS IN(number ratings are not marked in your form legends as such) and punters are left bewildered once again why a horse can fail dismally on a Good track one day and bolt in the next. THE ANSWER IS THE TRACK PREVIOUSLY WAS DEAD I have no problem with watering the tracks if you feel the need but change the track description, I am over these commentators and the like saying it is a fair playing surface with “JUICE” in the track WRONG!!! a lot of horses do not handle a Dead surface they slip and slide on it. At least you knew on the old legends what the track rating actually was and if a horse didn’t handle Dead tracks you left him out SIMPLE!!! this is my opiinion only. We work around it here at Horsebuck$ but to the average punter all they see is Firm, Good, Soft and Heavy not good enough. What did I just achieve probably nothing but it certainly is a plight for players. On that note have a great weekend and above all ENJOY YOUR RACING and “GOOD LUCK” to all from HORSEBUCK$
