Horses To Follow From THE GOLD COAST JANUARY 11

GRESHAM
The Chris Waller-trained gelding was third-up (Gold Coast, Race 2) and at barrier rise, reared and landed two lengths behind the rest of the field. He made up the lost ground and settled third-last, some eight lengths off the pace. In the run home, he was blocked for a run, and eventually had to cross the heels from behind the eventual second placegetter (Reckless Choice). He did a mighty job to finish where he did, doing his best work over the final 100 metres, where he grabbed fourth prize, beaten three lengths on the line. With an even start, he is fighting out the finish. Mark him down as one to consider next start.

ROMANI GIRL
This Chris Waller-trained mare has been in great touch (other than a failed performance at Flemington). After a close-up fourth behind Taniko at Randwick just before Christmas, she lined up in the MM for fillies and mares (Gold Coast, Race 5) and escaped the limelight behind Invincibella’s win, but didn’t escape my eye. She jumped well enough, but drifted back early to settle worse than mid-field. Rounding the turn and Invincibella had gone past her and she left to track that mare home, whilst being the meat in the sandwich (jammed between runners), while tending to hang in on straightening. Once clear, Avdulla had her five lengths off the pace and two lengths behind Invincibella. Her final 100 metres was exceptional, as she was taking ground off the winner. Finishing third in that field, under those circumstances was an amazing effort. Watch for her in a smaller field.

EXHILARATES
This Godolphin filly was my second selection for the MM Guineas and she didn’t disappoint, finishing third. Last year’s MM Classic winner lined up in the Guineas (Gold Coast, Race 6) and after jumping well, settled mid-field with cover. Tracking the odds-on favourite (Alligator Blood) throughout the race, she chased David Vandyke’s gelding all the way home and while no match for the $1.80 chance, she did well to finish third, beaten just over three lengths in the end. I also believe she may be looking for a mile now. The Snitzel filly was second-up on Saturday and does race well when fresh. She is a Group Three winner and should be respected in any race over 1400m and beyond.

CONCEITED
Talented and promising Godolphin colt who should have finished a lot closer on Saturday. He lined up in the two-year-old MM Classic (Gold Coast, Race 7) and jumping from gate 14, collided with Dusty Tycoon, costing him about two lengths. That saw him settle in the back half of the field and trapped four-deep to the turn. Damien Lane had no choice but to take the turn, via the cape, and on straightening, was spotting the front runners the best part of five lengths. Lane threw everything at the Brazen Beau colt who responded well and he hit the line hard to grab third prize, beaten just over two lengths in the end. He collided with several other runners during the race and it was a run worth taking note of in the end.

 

 

 

Horses To Follow From Eagle Farm JANUARY 4

BRIBERY
A winner on debut at Morphettville, turned a few eyes on Saturday with a big finish in the Aquis Pearl for fillies (Gold Coast, Race 3). She jumped well enough but was soon beaten for early speed and at the halfway mark, was mid-field, six lengths off the leaders. Nearing the turn, Bowman found himself third-last on the fence with a ton of work to do. He pulled her wide at the 200m mark and she started to motor home and finished third, beaten just a length on the line. She was taking ground off the first two in the end. She finds herself as first emergency for the two-year-old Magic Millions (MM) on Saturday and she gains a start, she may be worth a place ticket.

CONCEITED
Opening at $101 with all-in markets for Saturday’s MM, this Godolphin-owned colt has turned that price inside out in his two career starts. A winner on debut at Flemington, he made the trip north to qualify for the MM and did so in fine style on Saturday. The Brazen Beau colt blew the start and landed second last on settling (Gold Coast, Race 4). Tearaway leader Tramonto strung them out and passing the 600m mark, he was third last, seven lengths off the pace. In the run home, Damien Lane had him the widest runner and passing the 300m mark, was next to no chance of winning. Over the concluding 200 metres, he showed a great turn of foot and was finishing all over them, only to fall just short (less than a length) on the line and had to settle for second prize. He is currently on the second line of betting at $8 with BetEasy for the MM on Saturday. The extra distance there will it very interesting.

GUARD OF HONOUR
While most eyes were on Spurcraft on Saturday, Kelly Schweida’s gelding was lining up for his first hit-out since August and hit out he did. Ridden a treat by Sydney jockey Brenton Avdulla, he sat in the box seat, on the fence right behind the pace (Gold Coast, Race 6). Avdulla timed his run to perfection. 250 metres out, Avdulla crossed the heels of the three in front of him, and set himself up for a two-horse war with Spurcraft. Ands that’s how it panned out. His fresh legs got the better of Spurcraft (who did well to hold onto to second place from the fast finishing Whypeeo and Tycoon Ace). That was the Northern Meteor gelding’s third win when resuming and he can only improve on that.

YAMAZAKI
Arguably the run of the day on Saturday belonged to this Real Saga mare. Drawn the car park, in gate 16 (of 16), jockey Glen Boss held her back and found himself back near the tail and still wide (Gold Coast, Race 9). Never on the track, she was the widest runner on straightening and looked all but gone. Boss got her moving inside the 300m mark and her turn of foot was nothing short of amazing. Still four lengths off the leaders passing the 200m mark, she finished two to their one, and after hitting the front, then went on to put more than three lengths on them over the line. She ran 1:15.55 for the 1300m which was 1.2secs outside the track record set by Helideck in 2008. One can only wonder what may have happened, had she drawn inside and saved all that ground in running. That was her first (second-up) victory and on that performance there will be plenty more.

BOOMTOWN LASS
Having her third start off an 18-week spell, The Spirit Of Boom mare put in a solid performance (Eagle Farm, Race 3), to beat all but Jami Lady home in a BM90 over 1200m. Again she appeared to be doing her best work over the final 100 metres which suggests to me that she is ready and looking for further now. They ran 1:09 for the 1200m which is travelling, so to finish second to that time, with some to spare is a good indication that further will suit better. I’m sure trainer Chris Anderson will be thinking something similar now for this talented four-year-old.

WINNING WAYS
This Group One winning mare was second-up off a 10-week break and she handled herself quite well over the 2200m trip (Eagle Farm, Race 4). She sat mid-field on the fence with The Candy Man sitting right alongside her to the turn. Ryan Maloney had to ease her on several occasions approaching the turn to avoid the heels of weakening runners. Half way down the straight, Maloney weaved a passage between runners, albeit a tight squeeze, but once clear, the four-year-old mare hit the line well, without threatening The Candy Man who is in form and a class galloper just the same. She finished a close third, just behind second-placed Morton’s Fork. The mare has won three of four when third-up so keep an eye out for her next start.

PROFIT
One of the best runs on Saturday was from this well-bred three-year-old who certainly stamped himself a true contender for the Magic Millions (MM) Guineas on 11 January. The Dundeel gelding was first-up off a 10-week break and had MM Guineas favourite Alligator Blood to deal with, and he did it well, considering. He lined up in the Group Three Vo Rogue Plate (Eagle Farm, Race 5) and had every excuse to miss a top-three finish. Turning for home (already spotting Alligator Blood two lengths), he shifted out and bumped Eleven Eleven who didn’t take kindly to the interference and 50 metres later, that horse then shifted in and bumped Profit even harder, putting the gelding off balance. He then had to take a different path where he went inside, nearer the fence to finish his run, and still hit the line hard, beaten only two lengths by Alligator Blood on the line (who is now a $2 chance for the MM Guineas). One thing to remember here, while there are no arguments that Alligator Blood has earned his short price for the Guineas, Profit can only benefit from that run and will surely be even fitter when the 11 January comes around. He has won three of his five starts and is yet to finish worse than second. Currently at $13 and $4 with Sportsbet for the Guineas, he looks excellent each-way value for the big race two weeks from now.

GAULOIS
This Godolphin-owned gelding was resuming from a four-month spell and in that time made the trip north from Sydney to make his return to racing (Eagle Farm, Race 8). He settled mid-field on the fence while tearaway leader Fiery Heights put four lengths on the field passing the 800m, leaving Gaulois to set his own stride behind the blistering pace. He was always potting race favourite Deep Image a decent start, but did get within a length of him before his condition gave out inside the final 100 metres. He eventually finished fourth, almost three lengths behind the winner. The Street Cry five-year-old will strip fitter next start and Cummings may even look for a mile for him. Keep him safe in anything 1400m or beyond.

 

 

Horses To Follow From Eagle Farm December 21

LADY BAMFF
Well, it wasn’t the prettiest Magic Millions trial but it sure was an honest one. Her resume now reads two wins and a second, from three starts, but her defeat on Saturday was full of excuses and should be used as a guide to just exactly what she is capable of, despite everything going against her on the day. The Top Echelon grey had to do it the hard way from the start. Drawing gate nine (of 10), she jumped well enough (Eagle Farm, Race 1) but so did a couple of others drawn inside her who took her on early and kept her three-deep without cover. There she stayed for the entire journey and had them all off the bit until Gotta Kiss, got a saloon rails run on straightening, and after jumping from gate one, and enjoying the tow behind the pace for most of the race, the Steven O’Dea filly fell in to win. She actually headed Lady Bamff and put half length on her before winning by just a head on the line. Considering Lady Bamff covered more ground then Bourke & Wills, her effort was far more impressive and she should lose no fans going into next month’s million-dollar event.

CHAINS OF HONOUR
I had him as a Racingbase.com tip on Saturday and he didn’t disappoint. This Gerald Ryan-trained three-year-old is shaping up to be something pretty special if his dominating victory on the weekend is anything to go by. In a bizarre turn of events, he drew gate two and jumped nicely (Eagle Farm, Race 5). He was inclined to hang out going past the post the first time and ended up taking the turn three and four deep. Mark Zahra had no choice but to push forward and passing the 1400m, he took over and led the field into the straight. He had every right to throw the towel in at that point, after all the extra work he did earlier, but Zahra had other ideas and two or three slaps with the persuader and left them all standing. He went on to win by 2.5 lengths which was an astounding performance in the end. This Redoute’s Choice gelding has a bright future and should be watched at all costs.

MAGIC FOX
Second-up on Saturday and drew gate 22, after scratchings jumped from 13 (of 15). Got away ok but settled near last (Eagle Farm, Race 6). Tailed off to the turn, he straightened in last place, some eight lengths from the leader. Adin Thompson rode him confidently from there and he reeled in the front runners to grab third, beaten just over a length on the line, finishing by far the better. The four-year-old put in a herculean performance for just his second start since July and the Foxwedge gelding can only improve on that effort. Keep him safe.

SOFIE’S GOLD CLASS
Another who was second-up, and appeared a certainty beaten in the run home. Drew sweetly in gate two (Eagle Farm, Race 7), but was slowly away and settled second last on the fence, six lengths off the pace. Ridden patiently by Robbie Fradd, he stayed on the fence and as the runner ahead drifted away, he loomed up to sit right behind Cruz passing the 300m mark. Fradd then tried to push up under Cruz but there wasn’t quite enough room (as Steph Thornton kept Cruz close to the fence). Fradd had to stop riding ‘Sofie’ several times to ease off the heels of Cruz, costing him any chance of victory. He eventually crossed the line in third place, nosed out of second money by stablemate Skate To Paris. Given a clear run to the line, Fradd probably collects the winner’s purse. Trainer Chris Munce may look to push her up to 1600m from here where she is already a two-time winner. With better luck next start, she could be a force.

VIENNA POWER
Riddled with injury throughout his career, this six-year-old has had just nine race starts but has won four of those and picked up minor money on three other occasions which is credit to the Gollan stable for achieving such a high strike rate considering his lengthy absences. On Saturday, he was fourth-up (after a hat-trick of minor placings), and would have been a Racingbase.com tip of the day had he not been listed as an emergency. He drew wide (Eagle Farm, Race 1) in barrier eight and missed the jump as well, but pushed early by Jim Byrne, managed to settle mid-field. Cornering, he had to come wide but still finished too strongly for them in a hotly contested finish. If the Snitzel gelding can stay fit and injury-free, he has plenty of victories left in him yet.

 

ALLIGATOR BLOOD
He was a ‘QLD Horse To Follow’ back on August 10, and even more so now. He has franked that Doomben win with three more victories (and a very unlucky second in the Group One Caulfield Guineas). On Saturday, punters sent him out the hottest favourite of the day ($1.55) and he certainly didn’t disappoint. Although a little slow to begin (Eagle Farm, Race 6), Ryan Maloney had him settled mid-field early and rode him an absolute treat. Turning for home, he ranged alongside the leaders and it was clear from there he wouldn’t be denied. Under hands and heels only, Maloney drove him to the line, winning by more than two lengths with plenty to spare. Understandably, the bagmen responded quickly and he is now at $2.50 with BetEasy for the MM Three-Year-Old Guineas. It’s going to take a very special horse and/or a ton of bad luck to rob him of that trophy next month.

 

VEGA ONE
Here’s another previous ‘QLD Horse To Follow (November 9), who didn’t let us down. He stood out as the ‘eye catcher’ in the Listed Keith Noud Hcp where he finished eighth in the run home behind Outback Barbie, but still looked the one you wanted to follow. Last start, he finished second behind Tambo’s Mate when second-up and on Saturday, he comprehensively beat both of those horses home in a record-breaking performance. In a perfect 10 from 10 ride, Michael Rodd had the Tony Gollan-trained gelding box-seating from the outset (Eagle Farm, Race 7). Turning for home, Rodd simply eased him across the leaders’ heels, and just strolled past them to win, breaking Trekking’s course record in the process, running a time of 1:21.7 for the 1400m trip. Gollan has big plans for this fellow so keep him nice and safe in your black books.

 

MR BELLAGIO
Renowned for fresh performances, this Team Edmonds-trained six-year-old didn’t scar that record at all when finishing second behind Epic Girl on Saturday. He jumped from the middle of the pack (Eagle Farm, Race 9) and settled mid-field on the fence. Matt McGillivray pulled him wide on straightening and despite the leader (Epic Girl) having the race well within her keeping, the O’Lonhro gelding chased her home and took ground off her in the final 100 metres. He will benefit from that run and be even fitter next start.

 

 

Horses To Follow From Doomben December 7

RED STILETTO
This David Vandyke filly was making her debut (Doomben, Race 1), and left a big impression. Unwanted in the market at $12, the daughter of Sizzling missed the start badly and settled three lengths last. Still last on the turn, Robbie Fradd asked her for more and she knuckled down and showed a super turn of foot. Passing the100m mark, she waved them all goodbye and was off for the prize. Eased on the line, she won by a length, and considering her poor start, it was a vey impressive performance on debut. Watch this young lady closely. *(She is into $26, from $101 in all-in markets for the 2yo Magic Millions).

 

WINTER PASSAGE
First-up since August, the Stuart Kendrick mare had little luck in running and will definitely benefit from the run (Doomben, Race 5). She settled mid-field early and tracked the pack into the straight. Soon after making her move in the run home, she was hampered by runners on both sides. She still hit the line full of running to grab fifth spot, but should have finished closer. She is a mare who runs without luck, having won just three of her 20 starts. However she also has no less than 13 minor placings to her name as well and with a little more luck she can add more victories to her tally this preparation.

 

BELLARIA
This Magnus mare is out of the Kris Lees stables on the Gold Coast. She was disappointing when first-up at Newcastle where she failed to fire a shot in a BM78 for Fillies & Mares. On Saturday however, it was a different story (Doomben, Race 6). She drew the fence but missed the kick and settled mid-field. In the run home, Andrew Mallyon sat patiently on her and finally seeing daylight he drove her to the line, but not before being crammed for room and losing a little momentum along the way. It was a super effort to grab second prize after the interference. She is usually a good fresh type and has won third-up in the past. Keep her under notice.

 

SPURCRAFT
Trainer Charlotte White has this Jet Spur gelding’s measure when it comes to preparation. Already boasting a super first-up record, the six-year-old destroyed his opposition on Saturday (Doomben, Race 7), where he led from barrier to box and ran the fastest closing 600m for the day, clocking 32.71 in the run to the line. The six-year-old ran the 1050m in 59:45, barely half a second outside Houtzen’s track record. His second and third-up records are near perfect as well, and if that first-up performance is anything to go by, watchout for him next start.

 

 

Horses To Follow From Doomben November 30

WAPITI
This three-year-old son of Love Conquers All was having his third race start on Saturday (Doomben, Race 4) and based on his performance he should be somewhere in your black book. He jumped well enough but drifted back to settle in the back half of the field. Turning for home Sean Cormack had to go via the cape to secure a clear run and by then the leader (and eventual winner Le Palmier) was six lengths in front of him. It was his final hundred metres that caught the eye. He hit the line really well, taking ground off the first three. On debut at Eagle Farm, he dead-heated for second with Xanthus behind The Odyssey in a three-year-old Hcp (all three horses are nominated for the MM Guineas). At his second start, he won a colts and geldings maiden over 1200m, in a slow 1:11.0. They ran 1:09.2 on Saturday which explains a lot. Keep this fellow under notice.

 

CAPITAL GAIN
Second-up from a long 42-week break, this Ad Valorem gelding’s run was outstanding, considering the circumstances. He drew wide (Doomben, Race 6) leaving Larry Cassidy little option but to drop back (from the 2030m start) and take a sit nearer the back of the field. Turning for home, he was blocked for a run and had nowhere to go, By the time Cassidy saw daylight he was many lengths back and out of contention. Just like Wapiti however, it was his final 100 metres that brought him under notice. While the three favourites were battling it out up front, Capital Gain was closing on all of them. It was a mighty effort to get as close as he did, finishing fifth. Keep him safe at his next two or three starts.

 

JEWELIANA
I get the feeling this filly is looking for further, even this early in her career. The three-year-old daughter of All Too Hard was up against it on Saturday where she came up against the in-form Sugar Boom (who basically led all the way). This Steven O’Dea-trained filly drew the car park (in gate 14) and was trapped four and five wide the entire trip. Spotting Sugar Boom more than six lengths on straightening, the filly showed an incredible turn of foot to finish less than 1.5 lengths behind the Tony Gollan-trained winner. Had she drawn a decent gate, she would have been in the money at least. She was just second-up after a 20-week absence and will no doubt be much fitter next start. It wouldn’t surprise me to see O’Dea try her over 1400m in the near future.

 

CRACK ME UP
Formerly with the Liam Birchley stable, this six-year-old is now with Team Edmonds and was first-up after more than a year off the scene. He lined up in the Group Three George Moore Stakes (Doomben, Race 8), carried top weight (60kgs), drew the car park in gate 14 (of 15) and finished fifth, half a length from victory. He settled third-last, 10 lengths off the pace and was never closer than four horses from the fence. He turned for home the widest of all, and in a blanket finish (with six across the track), he finished as good as any and should have possibly won the race with better luck in running. All this, first-up after a year in the paddock. Don’t let this Mossman gelding get away.

 

 

Horses To Follow From The Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast November 23

LADY BANFF
This well-bred filly has loads of potential, winning both her starts to date. After winning her one and only trial, she then came out and comfortably took care of a two-year-old Hcp on debut. Then last Saturday, she drew wide in a similar event (Doomben, Race 1) but hit the ground running to cross easily and lead and that was all she wrote. On straightening, she found another gear and quickly put two lengths on them, and in the run home, went further in front to go on and win by four lengths eased on the line. By Top Echelon out of a Magic Albert mare, this little lady is bred for speed and appears to have a very bright future. Her main rival in the Magic Millions (MM) will be Every Rose who won a barrier trial by five lengths on Tuesday morning. While she was impressive, the $13 and $4 currently on offer for Lady Banff in the MM is just as impressive.

 

MISS FABULASS
You’d swear this young mare had some ‘Kiwi’ blood in her, the way she finished off her third-up run last Saturday. She had just about all the odds against her (Doomben, Race 7). She carried top weight (58.5kgs) and jumping poorly was last early before making up a little ground to settle third-last 15 lengths from the lead. Straightening for home, Andrew Mallyon had a wall of horses in front of him and was still six lengths of the pace. He had to pull wide to avoid the heels of Jadentom and seeing daylight in the final 100 metres, stormed home to grab victory on the line. Winner of the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes at Randwick last year, this Frankel mare looks to have plenty more to offer.

 

SILVERA
This Tony Gollan-trained gelding was resuming from a 12-week spell last Saturday and despite finishing unplaced, he had absolutely no luck in running (Doomben, Race 8) and still ran home strongly. After an average start, he was beaten for early speed and dropped back to settle with the tail-enders. From there, he was always going to struggle, being awkwardly placed on the fence behind all but two as they turned for home. Jim Byrne chose to stay nearer the inside which proved a disaster, as he was held up by a wall of horses in front of him. The final 100 metres saw him going up and down on the one spot and simply couldn’t get clear, finishing an unlucky fourth, beaten just a length on the line. His second-up history reads, five starts for two wins and three minor placings. A must for the black book.

 

FAST THINKER
Made a big impression on debut (Gold Coast, Race 1). Drew the outside gate and was caught three-deep to the turn. He was then pratted even deeper on straightening, where he was the widest runner, at least seven horses off the fence. Ran home full of running and despite his tendency to hang in, hit the line well to get up for second prize. Such a well-bred three-year-old, by So You Think out of an Exceed And Excel mare, he has so much promise and will learn so much from that first-up performance. Keep this fellow in good sight.

 

 

Horses To Follow From The Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast November 16

SO DAPPER
Having just his fourth race start, this four-year-old looks a very promising prospect. After winning his maiden at his second start, then claiming a Class 1 after that, he made it a hat-trick on Saturday (Sunshine Coast, Race 2) when stepping up to Class 3 company. Caught wide at the start, Larry Cassidy had to work him early and push forward, eventually finding the lead. After setting a solid pace, he had the rest of field off the bit on the turn, and in the run home, found another gear and passing the 200m mark, had put five lengths on them. Eased up on the line, his winning margin of just over three lengths flattered the others. Watching his performance reminded me of another QLD front runner, Vo Rogue. Four starts for three wins and a minor placing (on debut), who knows, but he should be an essential entry in your black books.

 

SUGAR BOOM
Another for the black book is this Tony Gollan-trained filly who just keeps on improving. The three-year-old defied all the odds last Saturday where second-up, she drew the car park in gate 15 (of 16) which saw Steph Thornton push her hard early to cross and lead (Sunshine Coast, Race 9). In driving rain, (but still on a Good 4), the Spirit Of Boom filly gave them all something chase and in the end, they simply couldn’t catch her. She led all they way, making it look easy in the end, winning by more than a length eased near the line. That’s her third win from six starts now with two runner-up finishes thrown in. Her only failure was on a Heavy 10 at the Gold Coast where she made it clear dry tracks are the only go for her. Cautious not to get too carried away, but this little girl could also have a bright future.

 

HEARTS LIFTED
Talk about a certainty beaten. This Michael Costa-trained mare was second-up from a year-long spell (having easily won her first-up run in a Class 4). She jumped nicely and settled in the box seat behind the leaders (Gold Coast, Race 4), but still had a tendency to pull in the first half of the race. Then the dramas happened. Caught behind the tiring leader, Zoff ‘n’ Off (on her outside), shifted in, crowding her even more. Meanwhile, two other runners whizzed by her while jockey Allan Chau was trying to find a way out. Only getting clear in the final 100 metres, the damage was done, but she still hit the line hard to get up and grab third prize. What should have been, wasn’t. This Hinchinbrook Mare has returned even better than she was as a juvenile and should be watched at all costs.

 

SUPERGIANT
Wow !! On debut as a three-year-old, another from the Michael Costa stable, this Red Giant gelding was super impressive in his maiden win. Jumping with the field (Gold Coast, Race 6), he strode out nicely, sitting second behind the leader to the turn. Then Allan Chau (riding the second of his three winners for the day), eased him off the fence and on straightening, it was simply a case of by how far. With an impressive turn of foot, he put two lengths on them passing the 200m mark, and went on to win by four lengths in the end, eased over the final fifty. He covered the 1400m in 1:23.04 with the track record being 1:21.9 set by Consular in 2005. A super effort for a maiden on debut to run just over a second behind a 14-year record (eased nearing the line). Watch this fellow closely.

 

SIMPLY SACRED
Shades of God’s Own’s win in the 2005 Caulfield Guineas. This Toby Edmonds mare was sent out a white-hot favourite and did an amazing job to get there in the end. She missed the jump and was last on settling (Gold Coast, Race 8). Ryan Plumb worked her up to mid-field on the fence where she copped a check, and lost some ground passing the 1000m peg. She ran into more interference passing the 300m mark and had to be steadied again. At the 200m mark, Plumb pulled her five deep to check off the heels of the three in front of her and once steadied again, her turn of foot over the final 100 metres was something to see. She went whoosh, and got up on the line to win by a length going away from them. After all the dramas she went through, she still ran the 1400m in 1:22.8. Keep an eye out for her third-up performance.
