SR2 H2 ITZ LILY($5.50); She ran a great race in the group 2 Roses in Brisbane over 2000m, only beaten 1.4 lengths. Drops back to benchmark 78 grade with a a 1kg drop from last start from 56.5 to 55.5kg. The drop back to the 1800m is ideal. She is our best!!
ITZ LILY($6); FIRST, this filly had a good run until passing the 1200m, then she was pratted 3 deep and to her credit she just kept grinding away in the straight to prevail. GIDDYUP!!!
SR6 H2 SOUTHERN LAD($6); This horse sat 6 wide last start and should of finished last but ran 3rd huge run. Has had a 4 week break and a trial leading into this race. So should be a bit fresh. Likes to get back in his races but from barrier 1 hopefully he can sit a touch closer and the jockey can get him to the middle of the track and blouse them late !. Likes wet tracks and the distance suits. Whips will be cracking in the straight.
SOUTHERN LAD($5); 2ND/$2 PLACE beaten 0.8L, tried hard all the way to the line.
MR7 H6 ONE MORE TRY($4.80); Jumped fairly last start sat wide and made up late ground. The step up to the 1800m is a plus has won over 1700m and at Flemington. Drop in class and a 2kg claim all looks to suit him nicely here. Should sit midfield and from barrier 3 he shouldn’t be sitting wide. He will be coming home with a flurry. Huge Chance.
ONE MORE TRY($6.50); 2ND/ $1.95 PLACE beaten 2.8L, had a good sit behind Dr. Drill, tried to reel him in but Dr. Drill gave them a galloping lesson.
BR5 H15 BACCARAT BABY($16); What a great run last start only beaten 1 length. The step up to the 1600m is ideal. Carries same weight. Likes the track. Everyone seems to forget she was only beaten o.8lengths in a group 1 last prep. She ran behind the likes Oohood and Nakeeta Jane who have come out and won more group 1’s. Should get a good run from barrier 10 hopefully midfield or a touch worse. She has a great turn of foot she will be steaming home and hopefully getting up to grab the cash. Best Value !!.
BACCARAT LADY($14); 2ND/$3.80 PLACE beaten o.5L, she had a great run in transit and at the 300m she was absolutely jogtrotting, swept to the lead only to be run down late by the Waller horse Koding.
MR2 H7 JOSEPHINE SEA($11); I know what your thinking “does he feel lucky” (: she was beaten 3 lengths by King’s Brook last start but does meet that horse on a 5 kilo turnaround this time. She should get conditions to suit her this time with some give in the track she is a very consistent mare and with 52.5kgs we feel this is her best opportunity yet to win a BM84.
JOSEPHINE SEA($7); 7TH beaten 3.9L, her jockey was outsmarted by King’s Brook’s rider at a crucial stage and trapped her wide, she fought on okay.
Let’s divestraightinto “FLUTTER CORNER” and the Group2 Brisbane Cupiswhere we are,EXOTERIC($81)we had this horse in this section at his last start and he ran a great race at massive odds. We are definitely following up here and actually have him on top of our first four, he is a solid stayer that runs very well into a prep, handles all types of conditions. We feel he will race closer to the lead here from his goodgate and J.MAC is on.Group 1 Stradbroke it is hard to past The Bostonian($4.60) he is in super form and 57kgs is no problems main dangers the rest of the field.Race 3 EagleFarm Order Again($4) will be super hard to beat here but I would justlike to mention 2 horses firstly: Cellarman($41)this horse races best into a prep and his last run just forget he ever went around raced wide the entire race, he willimprove here and secondly: Niccanova($12)we have highlighted this horse twice since a spell and he is a definite chance in this race, he finished just up behind the placegetters at his last 2 starts from well back. There is an apprentice in Sydney that is not riding to their full ability and is actually on one today that we really fancy so we are hoping for a big form reversal from this hoop. Cloudy here in the Sunshine State this morning but nothing can dampen our spirits for another exciting days racing GOUGUDTHINGS!!! On that note have a great weekend and above all “ENJOY YOUR RACING” and “GOOD LUCK” to all players.
POST RACE SUMMARY;ITZ LILY($6) provided Our Best followers with another great result when she dug deep to win after enduring a torrid run from the 1100m sitting 3 deep, Our Best value Baccarat Lady 2nd ($14/ $3.80 a place) was absolutely humming at the distance where she pounced on the lead only to be run down by Koding in the shadows.
