OUR BEST: MR6 H2 CALIFORNIA ZIMBOL($4) Great first up run in the Flying Handicap when second by 0.2lengths. Great second up record. Loves the track and distance so the extra 100m will suit. Mark Zahra aboard is a bonus. Should get a nice sit in behind the leading pack. Is adept in all conditions. Huge chance !
CALIFORNIA ZIMBOL($3.70); FIRST
MR10 H1 PRETTY BRAZEN($4.60) Been racing so well this prep. Super unlucky last start in the Blazer Stakes when badly held up with plenty to offer. Beat Arcadian Queen 2nd up and it has come out and beat Russian Camelot so form around her is really good. Loves the track and distance. Should race midfield hopefully one out one back with clear coming around the turn. Adept in all conditions. Huge chance and she is Our Best.
PRETTY BRAZEN($3); 5th beaten 2.1L perfectly placed at the 400m had every chance disappointing.
BR9 H7 STUTTERING($5) First up today. Has trailed in between the 11 week break. Likes to roll forward but can take a sit midfield if the pace is strong. Loves the track and distance. Only fail at this class was over 1600m was caught wide early hit the front with 300m to go and then faded but battled on to only be beaten 1.8 lengths. With the right run he will be super hard to beat !!.
STUTTERING($7); 2ND/$2.70 place beaten .75L, sat on leaders hammer all the way got to the front in the straight fought on, good run.
MR2 H2 ALBARADO($5); very good run last start coming from midfield to just go down in Listed grade, this is a Group3 but is probably not as strong a race as he contested last start. The 2000m will suit perfectly here being by Savabeel, he will get back again and steam home over the top of them, soft track a bonus. GIDDYUP!!!
BR8 H10 GREAT KEPPELL($6.50); went forward last start and sat on leaders hammer and proved too strong in pretty good time for the class. Drawn 11 here but the 1 350m at Doomben not so damaging. Jim Byrne will have him in a challenging position at the distance and expect him to go on with it.
GREAT KEPPELL($4.60); 2ND/$1.90 place beaten a neck, a great ride by Jim Byrnes to get him across to lead comfortably. Thought we had the dosh in the straight only to be run down by Royal Hale late, that’s racing!!
SUMMARY; mixed bag last week with a couple of placings in Our Best, one to follow from there is Mr. Mosaic, plenty of winners in our top 4 selections with 8 on top successful. To check all our results go to our web site www.horsebucks.com.au and sign up for 12months($100) or just follow us on Facebook. Caulfield Cup today and we feel Toffee Tongue($15) is a huge chance after a great effort at WFA last start and drops to 51 kegs here we know she can stay. Anthony Van Dyck($5) is a super import and if he hadn’t drawn gate 21 probably would have been top pick and Verry Elleegant in super form 3rd best. The Everest and Nature Strip($4.80) is an outstanding sprinter at his best and his best is usually 3rd run in he will be rollicking along tomorrow and Waller will have him spot on, second best Gytrash($6.50) another top sprinter but myself personally think 12oom is not his favourite distance. Bivouac will be coming hard. Craven Plate and some food for thought it is not a strong race at all and Nettoyer fires big time 3rd up. All in all a cracking days racing so good luck to everyone having a go and as always “ENJOY YOUR RACING” cheers Kerry & Dan HORSEBUCK$
