Toowoomba Tips - December 15

Tips to be updated on Thursday, December 13.

Previous Toowoomba Tips:

December 8

Race 1 - 4:44PM VANDERFIELD JOHN DEERE BenchMark 60 Handicap (1210 METRES)
Track and distance reveller MISHANI WRANGLER looks ideally placed here and clearly the one to beat. Two starts back he proved too good for them here in a BM0-65 beating home Just Favulous. Then last start was a little disappointing after looming up on the turn, found nothing in the run home while Ryan Maloney appeared to stop riding him over the last 100 metres. Three starts into this preparation and being a two-time winner at the track and the distance, he should bounce back here.
Result (Won - $2.60)

Race 2 - 5:20PM NORTHBUILD CONSTRUCTION Class 3 Plate (1300 METRES)
After a string of no less than six-straight third place finishes, Tony Gollan’s four-year-old SPLITZ finally broke through for his third career win. He finished on top of his class 2 rivals here last week and is on a short back-up to try again. He has performed well under Skye Bogenhuber and looks well placed here to go back-to-back. 
Result (4th)

Race 3 - 5:50PM HAPPY 50TH BIRTHDAY BALKE BenchMark 70 Handicap (1000 METRES)
Only a small field but still looks an open affair with CLIVEDEN getting the nod from me. His resume is glowing with track and distance stats far better than most of these. After winning a class 3 here over 1050m four stats back, he mixed his form in his four starts since then. His two runs on this track since then both ended in minor place finishes including last start where he put up a solid effort to grab third prize behind the Ben Currie-trained Snitch (who has now won five on the trot). The Street Cry gelding has won two of three at the track and trip (finishing second at his other run), and from a favourable draw here will be hard to beat.
Result (3rd)

December 1

Race 1 - 5:11PM CHARLTON TYRE SERVICE Class 1 Handicap (1000 METRES)
Hoping to kick the meeting off with a winner and the leading choice is ARDOYNE ROAD who will be having her second race in a row for the first time. The Top Echelon filly has had a disruptive to career to say the least with three career starts spaced over a 12-month period. She won her maiden in classic style on debut at Doomben, putting more than three lengths on her opposition that day. Then spelled for six months, she resumed a different horse and finished seven lengths last in a two-year-old hcp at the Gold Coast where she box-seated and simply went backwards in the run home. Another six months off and she returned to the track two weeks ago and finished a gallant second behind Real Cute in a BM65 over the 800m sprint. Fitter for that run, she’s drawn ideally in gate two and if she can produce her early form, she should take this out comfortably.
Result (unplaced)

Race 3 - 6:20PM SUPERSPROUT BenchMark 65 Handicap (1100 METRES)
In outstanding form since resuming, the Ben Currie-trained MISHANI RAINMAN would have to do a lot wrong to lose this. The Real Saga four-year-old has missed a top three finish just three times in nine starts and all three of his victories have been here on his home track. Two starts back, he registered one of those wins here in a BM60 over 1200m. He carried 60kgs to a half-length victory in 1:12.4 on a wet track which isn’t loafing. Last start, he missed the jump and never really recovered. Sitting second-last to the turn, he was pratted four and five wide cornering and took too long to steady over the 1100m journey. He still hit the line hard to grab third prize. Jumping from gate two here, if he jumps with them and settles better than mid-field, he will prove hard to hold out, back on his home track.
Result (2nd)

Race 4 - 7:00PM FALKEN TYRES QTIS Three-Years-Old BenchMark 65 Handicap (1200 METRES)
Second-up here, SPIRIT’S CHOICE looks well placed in this field and is sure to give this a shake. This Spirit Of Boom filly won a two-year-old Hcp at her third appearance on a race track by more than five lengths over 1000m at Dalby. Franking that effort, she repeated the dose next start at Rockhampton where she put all but six lengths on her rivals that day over 1100m. Resuming, last start, she was far from disgraced when finishing fifth, beaten three lengths behind the undefeated Zoustyle (who is a $1.30 chance at Doomben on Saturday). Fitter for that run back, this filly can match it with any of these and with Rebecca Goldsbury remaining in the saddle she has the opportunity to turn two victories into three.
Result (1st - $2.70)

November 24

Race 1 - 4:51PM Laser Clinics Australia BM75 Handicap (1100 METRES)
A winner at two of his five starts last campaign, LAST ARMAGEDDON is coming off a 10-week let-up and has a history of performing well on fresh legs. Two starts back, the Northern Meteor gelding beat home Mishani Shiraz here over 1110m whilst conceding him 4kgs (and meets him 1kg better here). Last start is one to forget where he missed the jump and never got into it from there. Yet to miss a top three finish when fresh, there is plenty of early speed here which will suit the five-year-old’s racing style and watch for him finishing hard in the run home. 
Result (2nd)

Race 2 - 5:30PM Enterprise Legal Class 1 Handicap (1200 METRES)
One of only two three-year-olds in the event, the Ben Currie-trained MISHANI RULER is working up to a win and looks well placed to make it happen here. Last start he sat on the pace here over 1300m and finished third in a three-way go to the line, beaten less than half a length. He drops back to the 1200m trip here and with his good early gate speed, he should be on the pace again in the big field. Nozi Tomizawa has partnered him three times for three minor prizes and will looking to break the ice on him here.
Result (1st - $2.10)

Race 5 - 7:25PM Ryley Jewellery Creations BM62 Handicap (1625 METRES)
Never surer of a horse winning than here with BEQUEATHED as she ticks all the boxes for me (and then some) in this field. Resuming from four months in the paddock, she put away a class 1 field over 1300m first-up. Last start she stepped up to the mile and class 2 company for the first time and made it look easy. Leading all the way, the Lonhro mare showed an impressive turn of foot in the run home. Making light work of the 58.5kgs, the four-year-old ran away with the event, putting three lengths on the opposition. The 1.5kg rise here will seem like a postage stamp, going on her last run. Impossible to pick anything to worry her in this.
Result (1st - $1.65)

November 17

Race 1 - 4:59PM Homestyle Bake Class 2 Handicap (1300 METRES)
Jumping to class 2 company from a last start maiden win shouldn’t pose too much of an issue for ROSENDAHL RED if she turns up in a similar frame of mind from her last start. After finishing second to Mishani Roman in a 1300m maiden two starts back, the Red Dazzler filly gave nothing else a chance next start where she blew her rivals away, putting almost six lengths on the field. Despite the sharp jump in grade, I feel she is up to this and if she can overcome the wide draw and find a forward spot with cover, she may prove hard to hold out.
Result (scratched)

Race 2 - 5:35PM Richo's Boxing Gym BM75 Handicap (1300 METRES)
Back on home soil, MR CHOW gets his chance to bounce back to the winner’s circle. Prior to a six-week let-up, the Commands gelding was in top form with five straight top three finishes (including two wins) before showing a clear disliking to the Sunshine Coast track where he was caught wide and never recovered, finishing five lengths from the winner. Resuming from the let-up, the Ben Currie-trained five-year-old wasn’t disgraced finishing fourth, beaten less than two lengths behind Rich Affair at the Gold Coast over 1400m. His stats here are outstanding missing a top two finish just once from five starts at the track and trip. Expect a big improvement here.
Result (1st - $6)

Race 4 - 6:50PM Southern Cross Bricklaying BM62 Handicap (2030 METRES)
Overdue for a win, the Tony Gollan-trained OAKFIELD MONARCH delivered, big time, last start where the six-year-old put more than four lengths on his rivals in a BM60 over 2200m at the Gold Coast. Her first time in the saddle, Skye Bogenhuber rode him a real treat, taking over on the turn and left the opposition to fight over the minors. He did tend to hang out in the run home but with a super turn of foot, he still ran away with the event, hitting the line full of running. This looks no harder and he must be considered a strong chance on his last effort.
Result (1st - $4.60)
