Mr. X bounced back this week just like Buffalo River who got the win on his favoured wet track (and
may even run here again for a 3rd week in a row) in Melbourne and Big Parade went bang in Sydney
getting us $2.80 and $2.70. Bless Her went down narrowly by less than 1 Length getting us $2.50 the
place. New Arrangement (4th ) and Pride of Jenni (5th ) just missed the placings too getting us a weekly
profit of $35.
This week the racing in Sydney stays at Randwick where the track is already good and with a nice
sunny day should stay or improve, rail out 8m. Melbourne heads to the awesome Moonee Valley
with racing Friday and Saturday – on Friday the track is good and playing less on pace bias than
usual, there is however rain expected Friday overnight and a cool cloudy day on Sat with some rain –
doing the form for a good 4 soft 5 (6 at worst) track, rail is true.
Melbourne Race 3 – Number 2 – New York Baby – $20 Win (Currently $3.90)
Tough race with not much form around these 3-year-old Fillies, but like what this girl did in her 2
runs this prep winning her 1st up easily and then going down under 1 length to a horse running in the
Manikato on Friday night and 3rd up should be fit and ready to peak. Main dangers here are 3 and 6.
Melbourne Race 8 – Number 10 – Pondus – $20 win (Currently $3.30)
Led them out in the Bart Cummings over 2520 at Flemington first up and went well battling on for 5th
and will be fitter here and very well suited here 2nd up again over 2500m and won’t need to lead
getting a nice sit from barrier 3 and has awesome 2nd up form with 4 starts for 2 wins and finished 2nd
the other 2. The 7 Harpo Marx is the main danger and worth a saver on for sure.
Sydney Race 4 – Number 2 – Undeniable – $10 each way (Currently $7.50 / $2.60)
This girl has good form on the Good tracks with 4 wins from 9 and 3 places and has been racing in
good form and will put herself on the speed and get a gun run. Last 2 wins had been from worse
positions in running and can see her getting the absolute gun run and be there at the finish. 3 and 12
are the main dangers here.
Sydney Race 5 – Number 1 – Emerald Kingdom – $20 Win (Currently $3.10)
Solid 1 st up finishing 2nd over 1400, stays at 1400m here 2nd up where he has won 4 from 6 and a 2nd
and another who will put himself on pace and give himself every chance by either leading or getting
a nice sit. Has awesome form at the distance with 5 wins from 11 starts and 9 wins from 23 starts on
Good tracks. Main dangers here are 4 and 7.
Sydney Race 9 – Number 12 – Startantes – $10 each way (Currently $9.50 / $3.20)
She has been racing well in Group 1’s the last 2 starts, 1 of which she placed, and is a very tough
genuine filly, she has great Good track form with 4 wins from 7 starts and a 3rd . She will settle back,
but with 52kgs on her back she will be flying late so keep an eye out for her as there should be a
good tempo in this race and if she can get clear running she will be motoring home. Very open race
and I actual have some value ones as the main dangers in 3 and 11. The 6 will be an easing fav.
Cox Plate: – Really depends on the weather and the track, Verry Elleegant if the rains come and it
lands in that soft 6 range. Don’t mind Mo’Unga at a bit of value and Anamoe may jump fav.
