SR4 H1 High Tail($4.80); This Horse ran so well in the magic Millions after being 4 wide no cover. Ran third to Exhillarates who is now 2nd favorite for the golden slipper. Won on a Heavy track before. Likes the distance. Won a trial by a length and judging by that he looks ready for a first up win. Should just sit in behind the pace and be there to pounce at 150m. Great Chance.
High Tail($4.80 – $5.50); 6th beaten 12L, torrid run in the heavy conditions being wide entire journey. not convinced he handled conditions.
MR1 H5 Just Hifalutin($6.50); This horse is flying this prep. In our opinion she was so unlucky last start in the Group (3) Bellmaine Stakes. The start before she won over this track and distance. Her stats down the straight are insane 5 goes for 2 wins and 3 placings. 1200m is definitely her go with 8 goes for 5 wins and 2 placings. The drop in class suits. She will get back but she will steaming home and pouncing on them at 50m !!. Great chance and over the odds in our opinion.
Just Hifalutin($6.50 – $5); 4th beaten 1.4L, every possible chance, disappointing.
SR9 H15 Fabricator($15); this horse is drawn wide but the heavy conditions should nullify that, he is a natural pacemaker and the distance suits. King Tomlola will make it interesting but Fabricator might just get the break at the distance at that could be enough. He relishes wet conditions. GIDDYUP!!!
Fabricator($15 – $12);8th beaten 7.9L, did some work to get the lead early but travelled well in front until seriously challenged in the straight, gave in probably didn’t run the distance in the heavy conditions. No excuses.
Gold Coast Track Heavy, Sydney Track Heavy, Melbourne Track Good; insane weather here on the Gold Coast from late yesterday and track is now heavy. Rosehill same scenario there with track being a heavy 10, usually with conditions like this VALUE can be hard to find. Last night we sent out to players our thoughts on the two main races at The Valley in the Abell Stakes we fancied Battle Hero($12) each way, thought he was travelling well into the corner and skipped a couple in front only to be run down by Mystyko(we had him penciled in for the last at Flemington today). Alister Clark Stakes we thought Star ofCarrum could beat Global Exchange and Cossetet but not to be he ran home into a “NICE” fourth. We are hoping he is heading towards the South Australian Derby and we will be on.The two main races today are the AllStar Mile and the Coolmore Classic both are super tough with lots of chances especially the Coolmore. We had Noire in Our Best last start but forget that run she has a bit of class and does have conditions she likes today(she is our second pick though) we have Alassio on top she is in great form and if she handles the heavy conditions could lob at nice odds, as we said a super tough race. All Star, Happy Clapper, Hartnell, Alizee, Amphritite and Le Romain all serious chances here.We had 18 winners in our top four last week along with 3 First Fours, 7 Trifectas, 14 Quinella/Exactas. Main Quaddie and a narrow second in Our Longshot so plenty of action for everyone there. Plenty of placegetters in Our Best of over the last few weeks at great odds lets hope we can salute today although the value is not there to be had today.On that positive note lets all have a great weekend and above all “ENJOY YOUR RACING” and “GOOD LUCK” to all from HORSEBUCK$
