Targetted a few races at the Sapphire Coast (Bega) tomorrow.Race 2
Form comes from two races.
If you watch the Wagga maiden on Everest Day, it is hard to get enthused about anything other than the favourite #5 Giocoso
. Given it is set weights there is no advantage for the beaten brigade. #8 Boxing
went OK as did #7 Lots Of Dosh
but Giocoso had them covered.
The race is worth watching if for nothing else than counting the number of cliches Alan Hulls uses when calling Boxing (punches up, fighting on, etc). I counted 4.https://racing.racingnsw.com.au/FreeFields/VideoResult.aspx?MeetDate=2019Oct19&VenueCode=MzY5OTYzMA==&RaceNumber=1&MeetingCategory=Professional&VideoFileType=FullReplay
The other form race is a 1600m maiden at Moruya. The horse that ran 5th, #2 Mr Dreamy
, was 3 deep the entire journey until the jockey decided to sprint up before the turn and actually was clear on the turn. Amazing effort to run as close as it did. Looks to have "clicked" at it's 6th start and the $9 each way appeals although I suspect the form at Wagga was stronger.Race 3
There are 12 horses.
#1 is scratched.
#5 and #6 are unraced and their trials appear unremarkable
Put a line through every other runner except the bottom two because of atrocious form and you are left with the only two chances.#11 Let Me Guess
is a 22 start maiden but has 10 placings with previous trainer Ross Dawson. Now with Nick Olive.#12 Michael Oscar
is first up for new trainer Theresa Bateup and it's 6 Victorian starts were good enough for this. Looked good in a recent trial.
I've taken those two first and 2nd in the trifecta and put the bolters in for third because anything could run 3rd.Race 4#1 Loudaz
came from near last on debut over a 1000m at Wagga and blew them away. Big horse who looks promising and the extra 200m should be in his favour.
Noticed the horse that ran 2nd to him is in a maiden at Wagga on Friday so I've taken $10+ about the both of them winning.
