BR6 H7 ALL IMPORTANT($5); ($3.90 this morning) this horse is drawn beautifully here and in with 53kegs after the claim from in form apprentice Nothdurft. A Doomben winner last start by 2L, he should be able to control the race from gate 3 like he did last time and give them the hippy hippy shake at the distance. He is OUR BEST.
ALL IMPORTANT($3.30);4th beaten 1.8L, led pestered in front but they ran 35 plus for the first 600m so no excuses with 53kgs disappointing.
MR4 H8 ROMANCER($5.50); Ran well last start considering, had to work early and by the time he got to the front he was a spent force. Today’s race sees good speed drawn inside him by the likes of jungle Edge and Tshahitsi which should allow him to get across and get a sit just in behind the leading pair. He meets Tshahitsi 3.5kgs better at the weights. Likes the track and distance and is adapt in all conditions. Looks like his chance to return to the winners list being 2kg’s below minimum. Huge chance.
ROMANCER($5); 2nd($2.70 place) beaten 0.5L,sat 3 wide no cover entire trip, big run considering.
MR8 H7 MILWAUKEE($7); This galloper is a pistol down the straight and is weighted beautifully here. At first we thought his heavy track form was suss but digging deeper his 2 goes on this surface were over 1300m and 1600m and led both times like there was no tomorrow with big weights, different horse these days. We expect Ollie to extricate him off the pace and blouse them. GIDDYUP!!!
MILWAUKEE($5.50);5th beaten 3.8L, beaut ride by Ollie presented at the distance fought on just not good enough on the day. Does race best fresh.
BR9 H3 TAWFIQ BOY($17); ($14 this morning) we really liked this horse when he was scr last week (wide gate), he has gate 2 this week and should get a great run up behind the speed. The track will be perfect for him and distance suits, he is a knob second up and with an ounce of luck and a split at the distance they will find it hard to hold him out.
TAWFIQ BOY($10);7th beaten 1.8L, forget he ran we will be all over him next start.
MR9 H9 ROYAL ACE($15); this horse loves the mud, and with the rail out 10meters(what the!!) he should go forward and get a nice run on the speed. He meets Ballet Master 2kgs better at the weights here and if the expected rains come and he hits the front at the distance it just might be adios Amigoes!!
ROYAL ACE($10); FIRST GIDDYUP!!!, an absolute gem of a ride by LindaMeech and settled down to fight it out and produced the persuader when necessary and that was the difference in the end.
Flemington could be a mixed bag this weekend with the rail out 10 meters and rain expected but we think we have found a couple there and also race 4 at Doomben is a good 3 year old race with Alligator Blood resuming and GingerRock 2 really good 3 year olds and on weights and measures you would have to lean Ginger Rock’s way GOOD RACE. The rain is supposed to come at Flemington and the westerlies are pushing through here in sunny Queensland so Doomben will be drying out nicely. A few shorties at Rosehill and they look the goods, one that might go alright at nice odds is Stella Sea Sun($8) race 8 very consistent mare and ticks a lot of boxes in this race. She handles all conditions and is still weighted nicely in a BM78. Great day for racing an absolute cracker here in Queensland so we are heading out today and hoping for some super results. On that highly excited note have a great weekend and above all always “ ENJOY YOUR RACING” and ” GOOD LUCK” to all from HORSEBUCK$ POST RACE SUMMARY; It is getting harder to find value with a lot of compressed markets these days but find it we did when ROYAL ACE ($15 – $10) saluted for us in OUR BEST EACHWAY after a gun ride by Linda Meech GOUGUDTHING!!! and Romancer 2nd $2.70 a place a good second for us and Tawfiq Boy($10) an unlucky 7th so next start for him.
