BR4 H10 SOUL STAR;($4.00) A Melbourne visitor who has been racing all over the country of late. Comes to Brisbane in search of a good track which she gets here today. Loves the 1000m and brings some good form lines from Victoria and Sydney. This race looks suited for her and the 2 kilo claim drops her to 55kgs 2 kilo weight drop from last start. From Barrier 6 should get a nice sit in behind the leaders and should be fighting out the finish and getting the upper hand near the post. Giddy up.
SOUL STAR($5.50); 6th beaten 2.1L, settled back left flat footed when they took off, finished the race off nicely. Next time over 1200m?
MR1 H4 MASCULINO;($3.50) Racing so well this prep. Ran second to second bullet last start. But we think he can turn the tables this time with a 4 kilo weight swing on that horse. Track, distance suits and from barrier 4 should get a nice trail in behind the leaders and be there when the post looms. He is our best !
MASCULINO ($4.20); 2nd($1.70 place) beaten 0.2L, perfect run in transit thought by how far at the distance, but Carzoff fought on.
MR5 H2 FRAGONARD;($6.00) Has been racing well this prep. All her runs have been over 1200m and 1300m. The step up to the 1400m is ideal and the 2 kilo claim sure does help as well. Likes the soft tracks. Should get a nice sit in behind the leaders and pounce at the distance. Great chance .
FRAGONARD($6.50); 11th beaten 9.1L, unusual for her to lead didn’t like that idea. She was gone as they turned maybe enough now.
MR7 H4 MY PENDANT;($7.50) Was in great form last prep. First up over the 1200m suits really well. Has won at the track before which is a big plus. Last prep beat a horse called Notation, who has come out and won 3 in a row this prep so form lines are pretty good around this mare. There’s plenty of speed in this race so hopefully she can get a nice sit in behind the leading bunch and if they go hard up front it will make her chances even better, but she will be steaming home in a rate of knots. Great each way chance .
MY PENDANT($8); 2ND($2.60 place) beaten 1.3L, great run by this filly hit the front at the distance fought on for a good second. Hoping she has a quick backup.
Another belter of a day here in Queensland so Eagle Farm should be a genuine GoodTrack. Queensland Cup 3200M is on today and all things being equal Yogi should get the major end of the prize, Social Element should carry them along at a good clip and be hard to run down, Azuro is favourite and will run well but he really relishes wet tracks. The main race at Flemington today the Recognition Stakes we think Reykjavik($3.50) should be hard to beat again although going up 5kegs on his last win, we also think Another Coldie($41) is about to strike form again, battled on pretty well last start and meets the fav. 3kgs better here. He has a very good strike rate and thedistance is no issue and definitely races better into his prep NICE ODDS. Not massive value today in OUR BEST but some nice plays nevertheless and think we will come up trumps, so lets ante up and above all “ENJOY YOUR RACING” and as always “GOOD LUCK” to all form HORSEBUCK$.
POST RACE SUMMARY;No joy in Our Best but we did manage 2 placings Masculino 2nd/$1.70 and My Pendant also 2nd/$2.60. We also had Soul Star in Our Best ran a nice 6th and certainly showed us enough to suggest 1200m will beright up his alley at his next start. Also first 4 MR2 $784, 3 trifectas and 7 quinella/exactas, a plethora of any2″s and the main quaddie in Brisbane. Fourteen winners in our top4 selections best being Smartedge $13, Pelethronius $11.60 and Twilight Run $7 to name a few.
