SR4 H1 PECANS($6); This mare is the epitome of consistency, flies first up and her record at the track and distance is first class. We think she is nicely weighted here under the set weights and penalties, there is enough speed in the race to bring her into it at the distance and once there she will be super hard to hold out.
Pecans($6 – $7.50); 5th beaten 4.6L; appeared to have every chance.
MR8 H2 WAGING WAR($4.80); Forget this horse went around last start. Wide no cover the entire race and it was a second up run for the horse which he does nothing, 6 goes for 2 placings. The step up to the 1600m is ideal. 3 goes for 2 wins. Likes the track. 3rd up is a bonus. From barrier 2 this will ensure that he gets a great run in behind the leaders. 58kgs with Craig Williams aboard we can see him beating the odds on favourite here!. Giddy Up.
Waging War($4.80 – $3.60); 5th beaten 3,5L, didn’t settle early on and under pressure on the home turn finished the race off strongly. Needs further (2000m)
As followers of this site know we are all about value but today there are a lot of shorter priced gallopers going around and the biggest majority look like being successful. For those that like to play all the races there a lot of horses around the $3 – $6 mark in our selections this week. Having said all that we are going to throw ourselves in the deep end at ” FLUTTER CORNER” this week and have a flutter in Hawksbury race 1 BM75 Letter To Juliette($8.50) and Raqeeq($12) we found it hard to split these two so we are taking the quinella here and having a little flutter on each at nice odds, high fives after this race or straight to the bar (: Last week was a very successful day with plenty of winners in our top 4 and Our Best and a host of exotics including 16 quinellas, 4 trifectas and 3 first fours so a fun day all round. A race that was abandoned from Saturday was run on Sunday at the Sunnie Coast we did fancy Light Up The Room($13) she ran well on the heavy track looming at the distance and peaking on her run so we will certainly be waiting for her back at Doomben. As followers know we here at Horsebuck$ are big on stats and horses racing in their comfort zone(which they like) but every now and then one will slip through the cracks and on Anzac Day Observational saluted at $21 should have been $51 in my humble opinion. If you found him congrats but his stats were abysmal to say the least but that’s racing. A cracking day here in Queensland and good tracks everywhere so there should be some great racing. On that note have a great weekend, aalways “ENJOY YOUR RACING” and “GOOD LUCK” to all from HORSEBUCK$
