MR8 H7 ROX THE CASTLE ($5.50). This horse absolutely fires fresh. His Moonee Valley from is outstanding with 2 wins from 2 starts. He loves the distance 4 wins from 6 starts. With barrier 4 he can take a sit or go to the lead and with the 2 kilo claimer on his back he only carries 56.5kg. Handles all conditions. HE IS OUR BEST!!
ROX THE CASTLE($6.50); 6th beaten 4L, led one off the fence and into the straight no sooner turned was a spent force.
MR9 H6 NON PAEAR ($5.50). this mare is no super star but she is drawn beautifully to either take it up or just tuck in behind Moor Wanted also drawn well, a lot of the speedsters in this race are drawn wide. She has a decent record here at the Valley and certainly races well 3rd up. Teodore will take the claim dropping her to 56kegs a winnable weight here. She will be humming on the corner.
NON PAEAR($5); 12th beaten 3.7L, dwelt slightly at the start drove through to lead on the fence, led into the straight but gone soon after. Not totally convinced being on the speed in races up to 1600m was a bonus.
BR9 H7 AUERBACH($4.80). Ran fantastic last start. He should be right at his peak third up here. From barrier 3 he can let the speed from the outside come across and get a beaut run in behind the speed. R Maloney will have him pouncing on the lead with a 100m to go and the whips will be cracking!. Huge chance.
AUERBACH($3.60); FIRST GIDDYUP!!!as we predicted, beaut run in behind the speed pounced on the lead at the distance, challenged by his stablemate but proved way to strong.
BR7 H10 OUR GIRL SIKE ($10). Ex Victorian mare with a decent little record and she is a pistol first up. Good tracks are her go and she will get that this afternoon, she has drawn well and she might just sit off the speed here and have one crack at them in the straight and grab them on the wire.
OUR GIRL SILKE($15). 7th beaten 2.2L, settled last a long way from the lead, ran up behind the pack in the straight and she was allowed to run to the line under her own steam. A soft run indeed , we will be following up for sure.
Another cracking day in Queensland with big fields at Doomben with plenty of chances.Moonee Valley race 4the Open handicap I think Ventura Storm($23) is in very well here with 58kgs after the claim, he has done most of his racing in Group or Listedevents and been successful 5 times at these levels, nice chance. We have Hunamosa($34)on top here this bloke loves the Valley and is his pet distance, might be a crazy quinella. We have been on a nice roll of late in all areas Our Best bets has been delivering in bucket loads, three quaddies last week with a couple of $2,000 collects we here at Horsebuck$ are not satisfied with that, we want the BIG ONE. On that expectant note have a great weekend and above all always “ENJOY YOUR RACING”and “GOOD LUCK” to all from HORSEBUCK$
