Toowoomba Tips - December 7

Race 1 - 4:43PM AXIOM INSURANCE BROKERS Class 2 Handicap (1300 METRES)
Formerly with the Mark Newnham stable, MILLEN FALCON has come to town and now resides at the local stables of Matt Boland. All four of his career starts have been here at Clifford Park where he has recorded two wins and as many minor placings. On debut, he won his maiden with ease, although covering the 1200m in a slow 1:13.6, he managed to put 2.5 lengths on the field in the process. Last start he brought up win number two with a close result in BM58 company over 1300m. He steps up to Class 2 company here but after the claim, will carry just 55kgs over the 1300m trip. Noriyuki Masuda is the only rider to have sat on him to date and he remains aboard again. Drawn ideally in gate three, he will take some beating here.

Track specialist BELLA OCCHI looks ideally placed here to bounce back to her best third-up. Back after a four-month break, she has been nailed on the line at both of her runs this time in. Two starts back, she took over passing the 200m mark but was run down over the final 50 metres by Cambooya Rock over the 870m sprint on this track. Then last start, she ran around here again but was again headed by one better on the day, finishing second to smart mare, Love You Lucy in a BM70 over the longer 1110m trip. Down slightly in grade here, she will strip fitter from those two runs and should prove a handful here again. 

Race 4 - 6:30PM JOE WAGNER GROUP Class 3 Handicap (1625 METRES)
Locally-trained by Jason Gregory, THE IRONS will be out to avenge his last start beating. With a resume very similar to Tom Melbourne, the five-year-old boasts no less than six runner-up finishes in his 26-start career, with three of those coming from his past four starts. After finishing second at the Sunshine Coast and then the Gold Coast, he broke the trend with a fourth placing here behind Deladies Boy in a Class 3 over the mile. Then last start, it was back to bridesmaid’s trophies when finishing second to Toga Picta in a harder Class 4 affair, also at Clifford Park. Back to Class 3 company here, and in a reduced field (after early scratchings) he gets another chance to break the drought.

November 30

Race 1 - 4:44PM PAKADERINGA FEEDLOT Class 2 Plate (1210 METRES)
Locally-trained by Matt Kropp, FISH BURGER will be out to atone for his last start defeat. Resuming from a 25-week spell, the Golden Archer gelding finished a close-up third in a Class 1 here over 1050m. Then second-up, he was clearly a lot fitter where he put more than five lengths on his rivals when stepping up to Class 3 company here over the 1000m trip. Last start, he dropped back to Class 2 grade where he just couldn’t match it with Moscini, finishing a close-up second on the line. He has drawn wide here but with little early pace inside him, Maddy Wishart should manage to have him settled just behind the pace with cover. Fourth-up today, he will be at his peak for this.
Result (2nd - $1.30 to Place)

Race 2 - 5:19PM BINDAREE BEEF RATINGS BAND 0 - 68 Handicap (1300 METRES)
Mark Currie’s five-year-old, VIBRATO is in outstanding form of late and looks the testing material again. The son of Your Song has not missed a quinella finish in his past seven starts with six of those being here at Clifford Park. Two starts back, he finished too well for a Class 1 field over 1200m. Then last start, he stepped up a gear and put almost three lengths on a BM60 field over the same trip while carrying 59.5kgs. He rises slightly in class here and has Nathan Thomas aboard who will be the sixth jockey in as many starts to partner him around the track. With a resume like his, its hard to tip against him and he looks the goods to make it a hat-trick here.
Result (2nd - $1.30 to Place)

Race 4 - 6:30PM FRASERS TRANSPORT Class 4 Handicap (1640 METRES)
She hasn’t won a race in almost a year but COOLMUNDA does boast a very good third-up record and two of her four career wins were at Clifford Park. To be honest, she did very little to impress in her last preparation after last victory which was here in Class 3 company in December last year. She then went to the paddock for a 26-week break and resumed here three weeks ago where she was never sighted in a BM60 over an unsuitable 1200m. Last start, she took on a BM65 over 1300m and fared no better, finishing unplaced behind Hydrangea, never getting hot in the run. I believe with those runs behind her now, she will strip a lot fitter here and the 1640 metres will see the best out of her yet. Also, a major gear change, with the blinkers and cheekers going back on could see add to her improvement here. Drawn nicely in gate four, she does look great each-way value.
Result (unplaced)

November 23

Runner-up at her past three starts, ESKDALE GIRL gets her chance to break the drought here. After finishing second at Warwick over 1100m, she mirrored that effort next start at Kilcoy, beating all but Write The Rules home that day in the Class 1 event. Last start, the Turffontein mare stepped up to 1200m at Beaudesert but in the run home, gave the leader ( Cabalo Escuro) too much start and had to settle for second prize again. The extra distance here should suit and this looks no harder. Given a good pace early, she will be there at the finish.
Result (unplaced)

In great touch this time in, LOVE YOU LUCY looks well-placed in this field to bounce back from her unlucky unplaced finish in the city last start. First-up off a lengthy 33-week break, the Love Conquers All mare lasted long enough to get the cash in a Class 1 at the Gold Coast over the 900m sprint. She franked that win by repeating the effort next start where she cruised to victory in a BM0-65 at Ipswich where she put more than three lengths on the field in the 1025m event. Last start, she fell too far back early, but finished like a train to be a part of a blanket finish where only a length separated the first seven past the post. She finished fifth among the mass finish. She should find this provincial class a little easier and from an ideal draw, should be no worse than mid-field early and then have the last say in the run home.
Result (1st - $2.20)

Race 6 - 8:20PM ALEMLUBE Class 1 Plate (1000 METRES)
A late starter for Lindsay Hatch, FOR MY ANNIE looked most impressive when winning his maiden on debut on this track. The four-year-old son of Shaft jumped well and soon took up the front running. Harassed by Golden Symphony (on his outside) to the home turn, it mattered not as the chestnut slipped into another gear and quickly put two lengths on the field, and from there was never troubled, going on to win by 2.5 lengths eased over the final 50 metres by Josh Oliver. Asked to carry 1.5kgs more here, that looks a modest weight penalty for such an easy first-up victory and with Oliver remaining aboard, he looks the one to catch here.
Result (1st - $3.50)
