DUBBO R1 #8 TRIPLE ACE $2.10
I thought this son of Helmet trialled well against Isalute at Gosford. Isalute has subsequently won well on debut and beat a couple that have shown some ability. He then went to Tamworth for his debut and was heavily backed late to suggest he would run well. He sat outside the leader there and was overtaken late by a couple that had a softer run behind with cover.
DUBBO R4 #7 CONFINEMENT $6.10
I put this filly in the black book when she trialled with Fritz’s Factor and went to the line with that galloper. Fritz’s Factor has talent and has shown much better ability than maiden grade. Her run following that trial was full of merit, she sat very wide and still fought out the finish to run 2nd. The next start she had no luck at all in the straight when running up backsides and squeezed between runners. The next start she had no luck again in the straight but hit the line well when finally, in clear running. The recent trial suggests she has come back well and should be hard to beat.
DUBBO R6 #11 ENTREAT $8.30
This filly has only put in the one bad run, when finishing 10th at Scone. If we forgive that run, she has her hoof on the till and should be competitive here at eachway odds.
GOULBURN R2 #6 ENDURING NIGHT $3.65
I was taken by both her trials this preparation. She made good ground in both to suggest she would improve as she stepped up in distance. The winner of the last trial, In a While has subsequently gone to the races and bolted in to win her maiden. The 2nd placed horse Wilburglen has also gone onto win, by 3L. she gets an extra 300m here which is a big positive and drops 2.5kg in weight off the first-up run. I expect her to be storming home over the top of them.
GEELONG R1 #10 YANKEE DIVA $6.60
I thought her jump-out at Ballarat on the 26th of May was good enough to be competitive here. She came down the outside in that jump-out and was not asked for much of an effort. Carnamah, a horse who I have a bit of time for, ran well yesterday on debut, he was behind her under riding.
GEELONG R2 #5 KUMO SUN $3.25
Poor old Sanbuck bumps into a couple with above average ability again. Keen on Kumo Sun who finished in a blanket finish at Geelong with Debt’n’deficit and Red Rossini. Debt has subsequently won at Flemington and most recently finished 3rd in a benchmark 78. Red Rossini has also franked the form by winning her next two starts. The first jump-out at Pakenham suggests she has come back in good order, finishing alongside Brazen Brando and Caffrey. Both those gallopers are in good form winning their previous start. Next Best is #9 Bossy Demeanour, Price poured a bit of cold water over his chances this morning but he did cross the line in a recent jump-out with Sense of Honour, but they were not setting any speed records. #3 Sanbuck goes in all exotics.
GEELONG R6 #5 SOMERSET MAUGHAM $2.95
Looks to be in good order if the latest jump-out at Werribee is any guide. Went to the line under a hold. Craig Williams takes the ride which is a good lead. Also, will be having something on #8 GETTYSBURG ADDRESS won a decent maiden last start and the 2nd placed horse has won since.
