The margin may have been narrow only for 3. Huétor last start, but the sectionals this import timed in the home run were very slick. Huetor’s last 600m segment in 33.83s was two lengths faster than the next best of the race, while his 400m to 200m of 10.99s and last 200m of 11.16s were among the fastest in the meeting, and it was behind 2000m. Long story short, don’t let the margins fool you, this was a huge victory and that of a newcomer able to make their way to a black type business. Since I passed a kilometer this preparation, 4. Lord Ardmore finished first, second and first. He seems to be in charge of this area again, with James McDonald jumping on board. 7. Welsh legend meets Huetor 2kg in a better position and was 1400m to 2000m last start.
How to play it: Huetor to win.
Race 6 – 3:25 p.m. UNSW HANDICAP (1400 METERS)
2. Exotic ruby found Snippy Fox just too good last Saturday at Randwick, but continued to find the line to hold second and found herself in a very winnable race seven days later. The six year old mare ran well over 1400m at the end of the last preparation so the small increase in travel now seems logical in fourth and Jenny Duggan shouldn’t have too much trouble making up for the wide draw with a positive run. Exotic Ruby made two runs on the Kensington track two starts ago, but still won. The other key indicator of its odds is dry deck. Snitzel’s daughter has a record of 11: 4-4-2 on good tracks. You would like to think that 3. Saigon could park in the middle of the field thanks to the good draw, but it has no gate speed. That’s largely why she won just four out of 20.
How to play it: Exotic ruby to be won.
Race 7 – 4 PM CHANDON GARDEN SPRITZ HANDICAP (1600 METERS)
There is a chasm between the best of 2. Cisco bay and the worst but, at the first price, it’s worth taking the plunge. Two starts ago, after eight weeks of refreshment he finished fifth at Newcastle behind Huetor. Cisco Bay was then sent over 1800m on a heavy 10 and he never seemed comfortable on the pitch. I want to be very forgiving of this performance. He’s getting his hair back and, with a clean jaunt, Tom Sherry should be able to park right behind the leaders. 8. Francesco Guardi is the horse to beat, there’s no argument in that, but does he deserve to be a full-fledged pop? It is lean. He might want 2000m now that he’s deep into his preparation.
How to play it: Cisco Bay up for grabs.
Race 8 – 4:40 p.m. ACY SECURITIES HANDICAP (1400 METERS)
There isn’t much between a dozen or so in this area, so siding with 8. Oscar Zulu, which the first market, for some reason, has completely overlooked. It’s not like he’s not shooting fresh with the four-year-old winning two of his first three appearances. After teasing his abilities for a few preparations, he really started to deliver the final campaign, scoring three wins in a row. During the Spring preview at Kembla Grange, he jumped a well supported chance of $ 4.40 when he was third in 1. Frosted rocks ($ 3.80). So why is there such a big price difference four months later? Significantly, there’s enough pressure to keep Frosty Rocks honest up front and Oscar Zulu’s cards to be close enough if they’re good enough. 5. Bottéga was second at Group 3, first until final preparation over 1400m, beating Cascadian at home. I just don’t know where it is in relation to a problematic barrier.
How to play it: Oscar Zulu up for grabs.
Race 9 – 5:20 p.m. FUJITSU GENERAL HANDICAP (1200 METERS)
6. Much better cards to find the front and we’ve seen what this quick gray is capable of there are two starts at Newcastle when he’s allowed to bowling. On this occasion he put on a good clip and continued to run. Expect similar tactics this time around. On the final start, Rammstein continued to kick under him with the pair emerging in the middle of the stages preparing him for a tie-up. Rammstein finished long last, while Much Much Better has the tenacity to keep finding the line. 5. Starla is the sleeper on the ground. Hugh Bowman made the most of her latest build, winning both races on her. She plans to be snuggled up on the fence again before being on display late. Ignore that she has never won first place before.
How to play it: Much better to win.
Race 10 – 5:55 PM SPRINT SCHWEPPES (1000 METERS)
12. Lion has become somewhat of a Randwick 1000m specialist, with four of the sprinter’s five career wins on this track and trip. The five-year-old has always been a skillful sprinter, but he took him to a whole new level the last time we saw him at the races, girdling his rivals along with BM78s. On The Lead was back in a distant second distance, while Kinloch placed third. He broke the clock late, so can Leo keep that shape, given that it was a huge spike? And where is he running? He will have to answer a few questions here, but he still wants to be with him. Maybe the expectations were too high for 3. The Bopper last preparation having won three of his four starts like a smart sprinter. This time he returns to the company BM78. 6. Remlap Gem is a dynamic dynamic courier.
How to play it: Leo to win.
