BR5 H2 SWORD OF JUSTICE ($6.50); Has been racing well from 2 starts this prep. He is third up today stepping out to the 1400m. Loves third up with 2 wins and 2 placings from 5 goes and distance no problem. Has barrier 5. He should jump well and get a nice lead with not much pressure and be able to kick clear on the turn to get the cash. Jim Byrne is on board today which is a huge bonus. Only goes up 1 kg from last start to 55.5kgs. This looks like his chance to return to the winners stall. Huge chance.
SWORD OF JUSTICE($5.50); 5th beaten 1.8L,
SR4 H8 HUMBOLT CURRENT($5.50); Great run last start at Flemington on a heavy track to run second. He is just starting to get acclimatised to racing in Australia. He is third up today and stepping out to the 2000m is ideal 1 from 1 at the distance. He is dropping in grade from a benchmark 84 to a benchmark 78. From barrier 6 we are hoping J Mac can get midfield just in behind the leaders and peel him out coming to the turn with a full head of steam down the straight. The whips will be cracking at the 100m. HE IS OUR BEST!
HUMBOLT CURRENT($5); 4th beaten 2.8L,
MR6 H1 BALL OF MUSCLE($4.40); This horse is an oustanding group horse but when in group 1 company seems to struggle a bit. But in group 2’s and 3’s he is fantastic. Has won 2 lead up trails coming into this and looks ready to go first up . He will no doubt go forward. If he cant lead outright he will take a sit inbehind the leaders. Distance and track he loves. Loves good tracks. We will be whipping hard if he looks like winning at the 200m. Giddy Up
BALL OF MUSCLE($4.20); 3RD/$1.50 place beaten 0.9L,
MR7 H1 AMPHITRITE($8.50); This horse has a fantastic first up record. Loves the track and distance. There is going to be some frantic pace set out the front in this race with Pippie going foward but there will be no doubt some pressure put on her in this race. She can sit midfeild getting a nice smother in behind the speed and be peeling out around the turn and hitting the line strongly. Great eachway chance in a not so strong group 3. She has been flying in jump outs of late.
AMPHITRITE($8); 6th beaten 2.3L,
MR9 H2 ICONOCLASM($11.00);Forget this horse’s first up run. He was 4 wide no cover and unplaced on a heavy track. He hates any track with water on it. The key is dry tracks which he gets today. He is dropping in grade from group company to a handicap. From barrier 6 he can get a nice sit in behind the leading bunch. Loves the track and distance and the step out the 1400m is perfect. Has won second up. There is plenty of speed in the race to ensure a solid tempo. Damien Oliver aboard to ensure they get the best out of him. Great Chance!.
Another cracking day here in Queensland and Group 1 racing at Caulfield the Memsie WFA we have the evergreen champ on top Hartnell ($7.50) there is a lot of pace in this race so it should be run like a true WFA event and he will thrive on that scenario, Scales Of Justice will be hard to run down. We have Sesar in the mix too for quaddies and he will be powering to the line, a REAL Group 1 is the only query but at track work he looked in superb order. Alligator Blood($7.50) this is a serious horse his only query today is the heavy track but has the breeding to say he should handle it. Damian Oliver is riding as good as he ever has and we think he will salute in the last. How good is Nash Rawiller going too this guy has had the enforced break and has come back rejuvenated it is great to watch when he surges one to the line under his own and only his hands and heel style. Should be a cracking days racing and always “ENJOY YOUR RACING” and “GOOD LUCK” to all from HORSEBUCK$
