MR10 BACCARAT BABY($8); we were hoping David Vandyke would take her to Melbourne. She is top class for sure and deserves her chance, great win first up and she goes even better 2nd up. From her gate she will get the perfect run here and Kolding just beat her in the Winter after a torrid run, we expect her to show her CLASS TODAY. OUR BEST.
BACCARAT BABY($8.50); 6th beaten 3.3L, raced in a nice position’ not convinced she handled Caulfield though(many don’t), thought she was going to drop right out but once balanced up she came again for a good 6th. We are hoping she goes to Flemington.
SR10 PENSKE($7); this Waterhouse/Bott galloper will pounce on the lead here and she has the perfect hoop in Hyeronimus aboard for such an assignment. Distance and track are ideal and with 5.5kegs less than last start he will give them something to catch at the distance. GIDDYUP!!!
PENSKE($3.40); 9th beaten 5.1L, led into the straight but compounded at the distance. POOR.
CRYSTAL DREAMER($10);this gelding beat home Ball Of Muscle last start into 3rd place and that horse has show cased that form by just going down to Trekking last start. He has some nice early speed so should be right on their hammer as they swing, he relishes this circuit and is a pistol 2nd up. Group2 is his optimum level and we think he is way over the odds here. GREAT CHANCE.
CRYSTAL DREAMER($9); 6th beaten 3.3L, missed the kick, no luck in the straight ran on well when clear not convinced would have beaten the winner though. NEXT TIME.
GUMSHOE($8.50);we are not a fan of the Highway’s but feel this horse is worth a wager here. He is a pistol first up and this distance is his go, he has won here and we hope the Bowster can get him up on the speed where he does his best racing. Adept in all conditions also a touch over the odds.
GUMSHOE($6.50); 9th beaten 3.9L, not good enough on the day.
A cracking day on the Gold Coast and a great days racing down south, I have been a racing tragic all my life and the Randwick programme is one of the toughest I have encountered to dissect it usually spells VALUE. The Everest is an outstanding field of sprinters where to look? I have settled on the mare Sunlight($15) she is top shelf and with maturity is ready to beat the boys, my offsider thinks Santa Ana Lane($4.60) can run over the top of them he is an outstanding Group1 horse. Just like to mention Classique Legend($20) the spruikers were out for this horse last prep against moderate opposition they have dropped off him now. I really think he will feature here big time his 2 runs since a break have been very good against the best (Brutal & Pierata) now he will peak here, Les Bridge is a master at getting a good horse right on the day and Nash will have him humming in behind the leaders definitely be having something on this bloke. Caulfield Cup; We are sticking with Qafila($34) here pretty good run last Saturday after doing some work early to take up a prominent position she was still battling away in the straight, she might even take it up here. Mr. Quickie($9.50) a bit flat 2nd up, the Queensland Winter form will stand up again and our old mate Hartnell($20) hideous gate but if he can get any sort of run he will be there when the whips are cracking. We are hoping Finche runs a good race we don’t want a penalty for the Melbourne Cup (very selfish of us(:) we think the best of the overseas horses is Mirage Dancer($15) great record over this distance. We are off to THE DOME at the Gold Coast today for a great day at the track we always “ENJOY OUR RACING” and GOOD LUCK to all.
Multi runner players had a field day with 22 winners in our top 4 with Hanover Square/$32, Dawson Diva/$10.90, Gamay/$8.30 and Time Is Precious/$8 the best. Classique Legend still hasn’t got out in the Everest, Golden Eagle for him? Finche is on target for the Melbourne Cup he has always been our main contender here. A host of unlucky runners in the Caulfield Cup none more so than Constantinople. Our Best Baccarat Baby DID NOT handle Caulfield at all we are hoping she goes to Flemington.
