Race 7 - CANTERBURY HURLSTONE PARK RSL CLUB SPRING PREVIEW


Race Card  |  Speed Map    

Two very interesting runners dominate the market in this Open Handicap. THAT'S A GOOD IDEA and OXFORD POET will make sure the tempo is FAIR, with the enigmatic TOM MELBOURNE on their back. Now with the Waller stable, TOM MELBOURNE has a list of positives and negatives as long as your arm! Distance too short, can over-race and not reliable are the downside, a great fresh record, impressive trial win and of course Chris Waller are the positives. He'll have to be right at his best to beat the dynamic WASHINGTON HEIGHTS, who returned to Aus with a flashing win first-up. SARRASIN and ETYMOLOGY will be warming up late. DEE I CEE Blinkers FIRST TIME, ETYMOLOGY Gelded. [updated 9:14am]

Returned with 6th to Boss Lane over 1100m when on-pace and not too far off. Since won a trial. Place at best staying on 61kg.
The last 200m SURGE is the risk for this powerful on-pacer up in distance with some company setting a tempo.
He's one of two big front rowers that lead up this race, but I'm bettin' on the swooper to take the gap and storm home to score!

Safely held when 12th to Slightly Sweet before heading to Brisbane and winning easier 1350m race. Back in better grade again now.
He does have 1400m form at best, however his last couple of efforts have posted a weak final 200m SURGE. Worried about that.
He's had some injury worries over the years and it's a miracle Kimmy squeezed out one more win in Brisvegas.

Stayer resuming coming off nice enough trials (4th and 5th). Ran good 3rd in G2 Villiers over 1600m at only Australian start. No form over 1400m.
He will be winding up and hitting the line late, assuming he is fit in the yard. Has some hope if the tempo is STRONG.
Waller might be heading to the big one with this guy. This is a barrier trial for a Melbourne Cup prep.

New trainer. Highly talented stayer at best resuming here over 1400m and was unlucky fresh last prep. Recent trials very impressive (4th and 1st). Winning chance.
Can over-race and does prefer galloping room so barrier 2 could be some concern. Hard to be confident he can sprint on firm 1400m. Check the yard.
He's cost punters an arm and a leg down south and now he's in Sydney to cause havoc. Trials were like Phar Lap. In the Quaddie.

Blinkers FIRST TIME. He hasn't looked good in the trials (ridden for 6th and 4th), but does have 3 placings from 4 fresh. No form over this distance.
A one-paced horse that should be out-sprinted in this race. Doesn't have the POWER of others.
I'd out-sprint this bloke after 12 beers and a pie. Grinder.

New trainer. Three trials all nice (7th, 1st and 5th), but has never figured first-up before Risky runner straight to 1400m.
The wide barrier doesn't make this an easy ask for Rachel King. Other horses in peak form and fitter. Check the yard.
Not leaving this guy out for a few bucks at long odds. Very sneaky.

Stormed home to win first-up in Aus over 1200m following a stint in Hong Kong, beating Sir Plush. Only needs to get 1400m to win again.
A brilliant effort last start, showing he has supreme POWER to sprint on a dry Rosehill track. That will be key today. My favourite.
Everyone is tellin' me this is a match race between TOM and this bloke. That's an easy choice surely!

Gelded. Trials looked good (4th and 2nd) and was G1 placed before a long break. Touch of class, but will want further.
Tempo is so important for this horse. He has stamina so will be hoping for a STRONG tempo early on. Place perhaps.
Another Cups horse resuming for a look around the track. Not here to win.

Out-sped first-up over 1200m and takes on high grade race again here. Might need easier over slightly further.
Simply doesn't have the POWER and sprint to figure at Rosehill against horses like these.

Up on STRONG tempo and well beaten for 7th behind Pelethronius over 1500m last start. Racing out of grade here.
Perhaps has reached his mark, a genuine on-pacer that doesn't have a lot of SCOPE. Not expecting him to win.
Barrier 1, no weight, but beating Lay Down the Law is C grade compared to this. Nope.
