SR6 H2 EMBRACER($5.50); this horse meets the favourite 1.5kegs better here for being beaten a neck last start. The 1200m is his pet distance and if he lobs in front game, set and match.
EMBRACER($5.20); FIRST GOUGUDTHING!!! ridden hard along the fence at the start to strike the lead went on with it.
SR9M H8 CHOCOLATIER($5.50); another Waterhouse/Bott galloper, we are seriously hoping that Tommy takes this horse straight to the front. He is up a tad in class but drops 5 kegs, control the race in front over a distance he relishes SUPER TOUGH TO BEAT.
CHOCOLATIER($7); 11th beaten 6.5L, would have preferred for this horse to lead as he likes to control things, as it was he had a beaut sit behind the leader loomed at the distance but weakened out of it.
BR9 H9 EPIC GIRL($8.50); another mare that races best when right on the speed and if she leads has the services of one of the best front running riders in OZ Linda Meech. She is well up to this grade and ticks a lot of boxes here and is ultra consistent when in form. Very hard to beat in a good race.
EPIC GIRL($4.40); 3rd/$1.70 place beaten 0.4L, she ran extremely well and a serious chance at the 50m only to be beaten by 2 mares who can figure at GOLDY in a couple of weeks.
MR6 H1 PIERRLESS($8); she has been racing in great form at the mid weeks and the step up to Saturday grade here is no problem. This is the equivalent to a midweeker and is in pretty well after the claim. She likes to hum along but a couple of others do to including her stablemate so she might get a run just behind them, either way extremely hard to beat.
PIERRLESS($10); FIRST GIDDYUP!!! straight to the front game over, no idea why she got out in the betting but we enjoyed it nonetheless. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
MR9 H1 JESTER ANGEL($20); this mare can jump away a bit tardy but can still muster speed quickly to be right on the pace. Her run last start was good in a slightly stronger race and News Girl which finished 4th in that race won on Thursday at Caulfield. Second up stats are very good and she is consistent. Great odds.
JESTER ANGEL($31); 11th beaten 4L, well she did it, missed the start worse than normal. She is an 8 year old so maybe its too late for her (to change) but she still has a ton of speed and if she jumps she will lead them a merry dance??? she ran well considering.
Super competitive racing today especially in Bris Vegas with lots of horses going around gearing up for the Magic Millions on the Goldy. So we have to put things into perspective there which we have(: Alligator Blood we think he will win but Diamond Thunder is no slouch but the MM looms large. The Bernborough handicap and we have thought this race has been Niccanova’s aim this prep and his form along the way does NOT suggest otherwise and any precipitation around will only enhance his chance. The Buffering and Deep Image up 3kgs on his last win but out to his pet distance, his nemesis can be soft tracks and any rain around might just give Gaulois the edge. Racing down south is very competitive with lots of chances and hard to line up but line them up we did and think we have nailed a couple in Our Best bets. Lets hope we can fill the coffers today to enhance our New Years celebrations, on that note we wish all our subscribers and Facebook followers a Happy New Year and a prosperous 2020(plenty of winners) but above all GREAT HEALTH and HAPPINESS. Racing is there to be enjoyed and if we can enhance that experience for you then we have done our job here at HORSEBUCK$. “GOOD LUCK” to all from Kerry and Daniel HORSEBUCK$
