MR9 H4 Call Me Handsome($6.50); what can you say about this horse other than he is a model of consistency and dropping back to the 1600m here is a bonus and he is at home here at Caulfield. Not an ideal gate in 10 but if he can get up behind the speed and enjoy the run of the race he will be extremely hard to hold out.
Call Me Handsome($6.50 – $6); 4th beaten 1.6L, led them into the straight fought hard but wilted.
SR10 H6 Winter Bride($5.50); she is a serious racehorse this mare building an imposing record. Tommy Berry rode her a treat last start and from gate 1 we expect more of the same today. Second up she has been placed 2 from 2 but we think that stat will change today. She is adept in all conditions and this is her optimum distance, a great win last start over a similar field we expect her to deliver again. She is our best.
Winter Bride ($5.50 – $7); 3rd($2.40 place) beaten 1.6L, long way back in 14th place at the 400m ran home strongly follow up.
BR3 H6 Monaco Snob($12); forget his last two runs when inconvenienced both times, but he invariably doesn’t fire a shot his first 3 runs back so he should be ready to fire here. He is in very well here after his claim(53.5kgs) and he might race a little closer here with his light weight and good gate. The distance is right up his alley, he will be there when the whips are cracking.
Monaco Snob($12 – $20); 10th beaten 5.7L, great run in transit did nothing.
We stated last week that the fields were massive and we would be skirting wide in the main quaddie legs, the same applies for today, the fields are enormous with a plethora of chances in each. By skirting wide last week we snared the main quaddie at Caulfield paying a healthy $6,500we also had the early quaddie there paying$1,050 so a pleasing result.In our summary we highlighted a horse called Rosendahl Red in “FLUTTER CORNER”and he duly saluted atgreat odds of $22 after $41 was available and also Hartnell which ran a great third in the Doncaster paying $2.90 a place.This week we sent an email to followers that Big Duke was our Sydney Cup horse and the $8 was good value well he drew gate 21 and his price has now drifted to $11 but we are sticking solid as he likes to drift back and be rolling into the race as they swing Avdulla will have him primed at the distance and he ill be there when the whips are cracking. This week in “FLUTTER CORNER” we are highlighting Spanish Whisper in the Group 2 Arrowfield Sprint once again we don’t have her on top but I am certainly having a flutter on her at the odds of $41, she was in our best last week and she never got a crack at them. She is a genuine Group filly with her fair share of ability, if Avantage wasn’t in the race we would have her on top. Verry Elleegant might very well blow them away in the Oaksbut we are going with Aristia($8) here she has had the perfect lead up to thisand she will definitely be better suited on a drier surface, the favourite would have the edge on a wet track. WINX what a CHAMPION an absolute SUPERSTAR. On that salubrious note have a great weekend and above all “ENJOY YOUR RACING” and “GOOD LUCK” to all from HORSEBUCK$
