Form behind a high-class filly points to Gleneagles breaking his maiden status at Hawkesbury on Easter Monday.
Race 3 No. 4: Gleneagles
Huge run on debut when second to She’s All Class in the Wyong Magic Millions. With David Payne and trialled as well as Saif the other morning. Nice colt.
Race 4 No. 1; Kahuka
Chris Waller/Katsumi Yoshida three-year-old on debut whose trials last month were indicative of a horse beyond provincials grade.
Race 2 No. 2: Auzstar
Zoustar colt who has done everything right in his trials. This is not an easy maiden to win but he appears to be above average.
Race 4: 1,8
Race 5: 3,4,7,14
Race 6: 1,2,4,6
Race 7: 3,4,7
JOCKEY TO FOLLOW
Keagan Latham leads the NSW Provincial Jockeys Premiership on 47 wins and could raise the bat on a half century today.
Race 5 No. 6; Bellarina Magic
Was downright cursed at Albury last start; barrier 15 of 15 and held-up in the straight. Stick with her; she owes punters one!
Race 1 No. 12: Mooshaka
Nick Olive trained filly who went down fighting when a neck second on debut to Jerry who appears to ‘go pretty well’.
Race 3 No. 1 Burton Street
Only need another stride or two and this Wodonga gelding was home and hosed on debut ar Corowa. Blaike McDougall sticks – why wouldn’t he!
INSIDE MAIL: HAWKESBURY
Bob ran (unsuccessfully) in the Gloaming Stakes in the spring which was fair enough given how well he was going at the time. Fast forward to more recent times and Bob was 10th of 13 at Kembla first-up but under 3-lengths from the winner. That was 1400m this is 2000m, and he has trialled over 1200m since. Take note, Bob’s one win – so far – was here and over 1800m. Locally trained Fiorente son Ausbred Cooee gave a very good account of himself at 2000m here and drops 2.5kgs for this. Insider Trader and Real Peace have claims.
BET: Bob win, quinella 2,8
Auzstar is the first Zoustar that John Sargent has trained and he might have a pretty good one in this bay son of three times Group 3 runner-up, Lucky Country. Auzstar has trialled twice and they were both outstanding. He is clearly talented beyond provincial standard. Herein likes an issue though – Six Again. This Written Tycoon/Dorky filly has trialled four times; third to Najmah then won the next three by over 12-lengths in total. Wow. You would imagine one of them wins but if they happen to come unstuck, Eye See Things is the one there to pounce.
BET: Auzstar win, quinella 2,10, box trifecta 1,2,7,10
Gleneagles should have finished a touch closer than he did on debut when a distant second to the aptly-named She’s All Class in the Wyong Magic Millions 2YO on December 16. Gleneagles was spelled and changed stables (now with David Payne) after his lacklustre fifth at Eagle Farm on January 2. Ran third to Saif in a recent trial and went every bit as well as him. Hard To Excel has trialled up well, so too has Ron Quinton’s Facetious and the Freedman’s Deep Field daughter, Field Wiri.
BET: Gleneagles win, trifecta 4 (standout) to beat 5,11,12,18 (boxed)
Kahuka is a gelding but it is still worth saying he is one of the best horses imaginable being by Lord Kanaloa; his grand-dam is a half-sister to Deep Impact. Not surprisingly then, Kahuka races in the colours of Katsumi Yoshida and is trained by Chris Waller. long story short, his last two trials have been crackers. Toostar was $41 to $81 first-up in a decent looking maiden on the Kensington track but plenty home finishing third. Fitter and has always shown a degree of talent. Two-year-old Maurice’s Medad has some real depth to his form.
BET: Kahuka win, quinella 1,8
Sophomore races in the same colours as her dam Shania Dane who won two Group 2’s but was placed in four Group 1’s. Sophomore is her tenth foal and hasn’t done much wrong in her nine starts winning two, placing at three and with a few solid runs at the midweeks to boot. Trialled like she is in really good shape ahead of today’s return. Edward Cummings trained his first city winner last Wednesday then went close to winning the Tulloch Stakes three days later. His horses are very consistent because he places them so well – Spanish Pearl is another perfect example. Munich ran a huge race in the Provincial Heat here on March 6.
BET: Sophomore win, quinella 7,14
Fifteen Aria is another of the Mr Yoshida/Mr Waller horses headed to Hawkesbury today. This filly might win a stakes race one day but her younger brother, O’President, beat her to it. As for Fifteen Aria, she beat the subsequently proven handy Flexible on debut at Warwick Farm then was given a break after a none too shabby run at HQ behind Zing. Trialled well behind Signore Fox the other day. Sagrado stuck to his guns when fourth to Loch Lomond in a 1200m Class 1 on March 13. Fitter for that and he will appreciate the 1500m now. Hard to find fault with Gerry Harvey and Marc Conners’ mare, Palazzi Signorili.
BET: Fifteen Aria win, exacta 2 to beat 4
Resilient Star deserves credit for his first campaign; he was a bit unlucky here and there, won his maiden and was second at another of his just four starts. The Freedman trained gelding is a very well bred More Than Ready out of Runway Star and hasn’t been shown up in any way in his two trials. Ceasefire was $2.15 into $1.55 on debut at Tamworth and ended up winning by 6-lengths. Bred to be good but he will have to be ‘very good’ to win his Class 1 from the outside alley. Glowing red, the half-sister to In Her Time, was almost unbeaten at the first campaign. Kept plenty in reserve in her two trials. Market watch essential for most of these.
BET: Resilient Star win
