WARWICK FARM R1 #1 DEEP SPACE $1.62
He might be pretty handy this gelding. He travelled well when trialling at Gosford and was under less pressure than the winner Timon Stinger when running 2nd there. He then went to Wyong and won an open trial against some proven gallopers, including Café Royal who recently won a benchmark 70 race. He looked to handle the heavy going in that trial and Jmac going aboard looks a good lead.
WARWICK FARM R2 #10 SEGAL $9.60
The first trial was nothing flash, but he was quickly put back in the paddock to spell. It was the second trial at Rosehill when he caught my eye, he was camped at the back and was never asked for an effort but still managed to be up amongst the front after the winning post. The stablemate Grenado was under more riding on the outside and has subsequently finished 5th, beaten 1.6L behind Armatree. The next trial he was asked for more of an effort, but he looked to handle the heavy track ok.
MORNINGTON R1 #16 ALTAI RANGER $12.80
Prepared to give him another chance. I thought he was a rough hope on debut after a decent jump-out against Terrace House, who was an impressive winner at his first race start. There was money late for this guy at Cranbourne to suggest he would run a race but was blocked for a run late in the straight. Up in distance and onto a drier track could also be positives. The trainer has been on radio this morning and said #6 South Parade is his better chance.
MORNINGTON R2 #2 ARISTO MISSILE $3.25
He trialled back in January at Geelong and finished 2nd to Yourdeel, that galloper has won four races. Finishing 3rd was Mr Mofeed, he has won a maiden. 4th was Bandinelli, he won a maiden at Geelong. Finally Laughing Joe has subsequently won. He has been given plenty of time to improve again since that trial and beat home Seewhatshebrings in a recent jump-out. #6 SACER VATES was a tip at odds last start and made ground from the back, worth including in exotics and having something on as a saver. #15 POWERFUL FLYER was also a tip at odds on debut and a win would not shock if he went forward, the short straight could play a huge advantage.
I give him a slight chance at eachway odds. He looked to improve at the second jump-out this time in. Sitting in a forward position and was not asked for an effort as they went over the line in a bunched finish at Werribee. The time was poor but Craig Williams taking the ride is a decent push. #12 MISS BOSETTI is a filly who I have had a lot of time for and deserves another chance second up after not being beaten far at Flemington.
MORNINGTON R4 #10 ROGER’S DAY $7.10
This is a cracking benchmark 64 with some promising gallopers clashing. Sided with Roger’s Day who returns here after winning impressively on debut. He beat Overkill there, who subsequently went on to win three on the go, following that race. The 3rd placed horse has also franked the form by winning since. He has been given plenty of time to mature mentally and has been given enough jump-outs to be fit enough for a first up win. The most recent jump-out he beat Bastyan by a big margin. #20 WICKLOW TOWN is one I want to follow as he goes up in trip, but not sure Mornington is his go.
BALLINA R2 #1 BLACKWATER BRONN $4.55
Looked ok in a recent open trial at Coffs Harbour. Sat wide early on speed and was not asked for much of an effort late. Finishing close-up to a few that have already been to the races and won. Behind was Serene Beauty who has won two races. #9 QUKES is the main danger and worth including in exotics.
