SR9 H14 PINUP MISS($10); Good run last start when last and running home nicely of a 3 week break. The step up to the 1600m suits. From barrier 4 would like her to sit just behind the leading bunch. With Dolan aboard and the horse dropping 4.5kg with a weight of 51kgs a fantastic weight and meets some horses 7.5kgs better at the weights. She loves the track and distance and has won in this class before. Should be pouncing on the lead with 100m to go. Huge chance and she is Our Best!!
PINUP MISS($4.60); 2nd/$1.90 place beaten 0.8L, got back held up momentarily in the straight clear in time though, ran well.
BR7 H1 CRUZE($6); Second up syndrome we think last start. Ran well considering he was chasing the leader off a very fast tempo and weakened only beaten 4.5lengths. The step out to the 1400m third up is ideal. Loves the track and distance. Only carries half a kilo more than last start. We expect him to pounce on the lead and dictate terms from barrier 1. We are expecting a return to the winners stall. Huge Chance
CRUZE($4.10); FIRST GIDDYUP!!!, we actually thought he would lead here but received a gun run behind the leaders on the fence, hit the lead at the distance and too strong.
SR6 H5 SPIRITUAL PURSUIT($6); Some real pace in this race which will suit this horse from barrier 12. Has trialed well. Has won first up before. Loves the track and distance and if the pace I’m expecting in this race is fast he should be flying home over the top of them. O’hara has had success on him before. Huge chance.
SPIRITUAL PURSUIT($7.50); 7th beaten 2.5L, never clear in the straight ran to the finish, we will be having a serious look at him next start in the right race.
SR5 H4 NEW UNIVERSE($8.50); this horse has never been the most reliable conveyance but we think this is a weak race. He performs best fresh and the fact he is racing over 1400m 1st up and has the services of Nash points to a very forward showing. Likes to race just off the pace and we expect him to be challenging at the distance and go on with it.
NEW UNIVERSE($10); 5th beaten 3.3L, not a happy camper here as we thought he could have been ridden a tad better. We certainly hope this horse has a quick back up his best racing is FRESH.
MR8 H1 WETAKEMANHATTAN($12); Returns to racing off a 6 week break he raced over the 2000m before that break and now back to the 1600m which is ideal. Would have been kept up to the mark before this run,loves the track and distance and the claim drops him to 58.5kg. Would love to see him just sit behind the leading bunch. A few horses like to sit on the pace so the speed should be genuine. If all goes to plan he will run well no doubt. Great chance at a good price !!
WETAKEMANHATTAN($19); 4th beaten 2.2L, he had a great run behind the leaders in 3rd place loomed at the distance but died on his run
