Race 4, n ° 6: SHIBLI
Lightly run Waller import whose only victory, so far, was on a slow track. Put the writing on the wall with two ultra-impressive test wins.
Race 3, n ° 6: YULONG TURBO
Had two runs for Lindsay Park, first winning in Adelaide and then bottom of order in the Blue Diamond Prelude. With Waller now and ready for a great spring.
Race 2, n ° 10: I AM AIR
Showed a clean pair of heels in the sprint for a big win in a test at Kembla in record time. Market watch in its early stages.
Quinella Race 2 n ° 8 and 10
Race 4: 5.6
Race 5: 5,8,9,10
Race 6: 9.12
Race 7: 5,7,12,13
JOCKEY TO FOLLOW
Kerrin McEvoy has had huge laps on the Kensington track and could well shake up the TAB Jockeys Challenge if they all show up.
HOME MAIL TO KENSINGTON
Unwrite has been an eye-catcher in both innings on either side of the spell, keeping in mind that he debuted in the Breeders’ Plate no less. He’s a great type of horse who handled the weight pretty well when he won a trial ahead of his engagement here on August 4th. Willowy is the eleventh foal of the winner of the Sandown Guineas Dextrous and therefore a half of Skilled, Sidestep and Ambidexter. They all ‘run away’ from this mare and Willowy is no different looking at the trials. Edmonton is a aptly named and very handsome son of Vancouver who has done his tests well.
Bet: Not written to win
I Am Brazen is a granddaughter of Group 1 winner Rewaaya coached by John Thompson. The filly left them standing from the top of the straight to win her Kembla try by a large gap and in a very quick time. Tristate is not placed in his four innings but is held in high regard by his coach Anthony Cummings. If he brings his practice on race day, he will be at the finish. Ditto for Dalchini, who was super impressive winning her two rounds of Rosehill. Big watch on Omni Man, She Will Reign’s brother for various reasons.
Bet: I Am Brazen to win, quinella 8.10
Yulong Turbo is without a doubt a much-loved addition to the Chris Waller team for the spring. The now three-year-old colt won in his debut at Morphettville for Lindsay Park before finishing order in the Blue Diamond Prelude where Anamoe was a finalist. Much to love the trials of this horse. Stablemate Starman won many admirers when he charged at home over the top of his rivals to win here on his debut. Clearly a talented colt with a bright future. Finally, Realize is on the 7 day backup after a close second here last Wednesday. To go well.
Bet: Yulong Turbo to win, quinella 5.6
Shibli does trials as well as any horse race today and better than most in fact. The Chris Waller-driven import ran five times for a win that was on a soft track at Newcastle in his second appearance only. He seems to have a fantastic shape. Dhakuri is an absolutely stunning son of Sheikh Mohammed’s own contributor. You would think he aspires to better runs up to 2000m and more now at the age of four, so he’s perfectly suited here on the 1400m on the return trip. Armatree is fit and consistent.
Bet: Shibli wins, exacta 6 to beat 5
John O’Shea produced the “wow horse” at last Wednesday’s reunion here, namely Jal Lei. This time it’s another of her three-year-old star fillies in Mascherata. Born and raised in Waikato Stud, she was brilliant when she won at Scone and is surely destined for better races than that – and that. Zero To Hundred won in their debut on a Heavy 9 at Warwick Farm, so I shouldn’t have any problems with the surface today. Essays are much better than they appear on paper. Suborn has reached his best pace and could continue the job now.
Bet: Mascherata winner, box trifecta 5,8,9,10
Dinado was brought up and partly owned by Adam Sangster. The mare is a daughter of Cup winner Adelaide Lacey Underall (think Caddyshack) and will come in third here after some decent effort. Note that two of his three victories so far have been on difficult tracks. Appeals all over the place. Estreet enjoyed the firm surface when he won here three weeks ago. It remains to be seen whether it will be able to be as good in wet conditions today. The Savabeel Black Bolt replica is a very practical horse in its day and should be in its prime for it.
Bet: Dinado each way
Pippali is one of those typical mares trained by Jason Coyle who was very well placed. Every time Coyle asked a little more of the Golden Slipper Polar Success winner’s granddaughter, Pippali stood up. It’s far from her best but she could end up anywhere here. While waiting for a return to the form of the cash register today. The Anthony Cummings-trained son of Pendragon was way below his best when he raced at Kembla on the last start, but he will appreciate moving from a difficult track to a more forgiving track here. A Very Fine Red finished fourth for the Percy Sykes immediately after a first provincial victory.
Bet: Pippali winner, quinella 5.12
