WA horses to follow

Looking for WA horses to follow each Saturday? We pick out the best blackbookers each week from the metropolitan meeting in Western Australia.

From winners of feature races to unlucky loses and first up gallopers outrunning expectations, we select three or four horses each week to add to your blackbook from Perth’s Saturday racing.

Here are some horses to put in your blackbook:


Race 7 – LISTED (1400m) – NOTORIOUS ONE
Getting repetitive with this horse but he stays in the Blackbook. First time against Listed company and he ran the fastest 600-400m and 200m – finish. He ran home 4L faster than the class benchmark and was only narrowly beaten in the end. He is doing much more right during the race now and looks set for the Ascot Carnival.

Race 9 – 66+ (1200 METRES) – MYSTICAL VIEW
Hopefully a few of you followed her in on the one week back up. As you will see below, she was the only horse we suggested to follow out of last weekends meeting. She found herself well back in the early stages, but ran the fastest 400-200m and 200m-finish to rattle home. Her last 600m was 6.5L faster than the class benchmark. She’s set to keep heading towards the Listed Black Heart Bart Stakes.


Race 3 – 66+ (1000 METRES) – MYSTICAL VIEW
Four-year-old mare that was in the cerise and white and bought by Sue Olive. The investment was clearly for her after racing life as a mum, but what we learnt today is that she still may have a few wins left in her. She went out at a big price but showed her class getting home 5L faster than the average for this class. Already placed twice in Listed company as a three-year-old, expect her to continue to go through her grades and play a part in some better races throughout the Ascot Carnival.


Race 5 – 1MW (1000 METRES) – DIVINE BEAST
Had been racing well and backed that up again here. The race was run at a slow tempo which forced her to be in the back pair for the majority of the race. She has got home almost 6L faster than the average benchmark for this class over the final 600m and only lost by 0.8L. Will be following again.

Race 9 – 66+ (1200 METRES) – CRYSTAL SPIRIT
Missed the kick by a few lengths and found itself in last position. Was forced to get moving throughout the early stages of the race and has run almost 10L faster than the average class benchmark over the final 600m. Very stiff to still not win and a horse we can definitely keep following now that he has also shown this form on a good 4 and not just rain effected tracks.


Race 2 – 0MW (1000 METRES) – WILCHINO
Already in our blackbook and she stays there after her result on the weekend. Got home 4L faster than the class average over the final 600m carry 60kg. It’s now three in a row for her and she is destined for bigger things. She is well worth watching for when she drops in weight over the 1000m.

Race 8 – 66+ (1000 METRES) – ISEERED ISEERED
Has always produced good sectionals and is clearly in for a big prep this time in. First-up with no trial, ran 6L faster than the class average over the final 600m and will only improve from that run.

Race 9 – 72+ (1400 METRES) – NOTORIOUS ONE
Like Wilchino, Notorious One has been in our Blackbook for his last three victories and again stays in it. Wasn’t as brilliant on the clock as his last two victories but it was more of the complete package. He was in trouble with 100m to go, but he responded to the whip. It is the first time the jockey has used the whip this prep on him due to his quirky issues, but he responded immediately and ran straight. Jockey and trainer also reported that he paraded better and settled better in the run. He goes to the Listed Farnley Stakes next over 1400m and trainer/jockey will go their with confidence now that he’s doing more right so they can put him under more pressure and hopefully he responds.
