Newcastle Tips - December 22

Race 1 - 2:14PM JOIN ASCOT VIP NEWCASTLE NOBBYS - BENCHMARK 70 HANDICAP (1600 METRES)
The opening race at Newcastle is a BenchMark 70 and the top weight in the race, CHALMERS, should be hard to beat. The Kris Lees-trained galloper last lined up in the $150,000 Spring Provincial Series Final and had no luck whatsoever, finishing 7th to Bobbing. Prior to that he finished 4th of 8 runners at Newcastle but this is a much easier race this time around and he does look to have a class edge over his rivals. The son of Mossman has drawn barrier 2 and his jockey, Andrew Gibbons, is likely to elect to settle in the first few. His mount will be hard to beat. 

Race 2 - 2:49PM NEW FM BOXING DAY RACES CLASS 2 HANDICAP (900 METRES)
It could be an early double for the local trainer, Kris Lees, who saddles up DREAMY BELLE  in the second event of the day. The four-year-old resumed with a 5th at Gosford behind Transmitter on December 6 and on that occasion she did it the hard way, travelling wide throughout the 1000m affair before sticking on well to be beaten by two lengths. At her last preparation, she was a second up winner in similar class before eventually lining up in the Denises Joy Stakes (1100m), a Listed race in Scone. The daughter of Dream Ahead has had one start at Newcastle for a 3rd placing earlier this year an took out a recent trial at the venue before her Gosford run. She has drawn barrier 2 and will go very close.

December 8


Race 1 - 12:59PM MADDISON SAFETY & INDUSTRIAL SUPPLIES CLASS 2 HANDICAP (900 METRES)
Tough race and big rise in grade for the filly DESIGNER MAID here but she is a speedster who is trained here. And more significantly, she can scoot this trip having won this track and trip last start. They will come at her late but sheer speed is her ace in the hole.
Result (1st - $2.70)

Race 3 - 2:09PM THORZT SAFETY CG&E MAIDEN HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
CATEGORIC for Kathy O'hara here. Caught the eye with a strong finishing 2nd this grade and track last start. This is his 4th race start so presumably is fitter, and with more experience comes right into the frame this time from stablemate VERVE.
Result (1st - $3.40)

Race 8 - 5:16PM KEITH MADDISON CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1300 METRES)
I was on SINGING SAND for a mint last start and she plodded home. Just plain old plodded when I thought she’d win by 3 lengths. She wound up 4th. Either I'm just off regarding her potential or she put in a bad one last start. I find out here because I'm determined to get all my money back.
Result (unplaced)

November 10


Race 2 - 1:34PM NEWCASTLE STEVEDORES BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP (900 METRES)
NATALIA resumed from a spell last start and met with sizeable support firming in to start odds on favourite. This despite the fact she was up in grade and racing over more ground than she’d ever raced before and had drawn the extreme outside gate. She finished a good closing 5th despite all those obstacles. Is fitter now, drawn better and back in trip. Will take holding out.
Result (1st - $3.40)

Race 6 - 4:14PM QUATTRO RISK SERVICES CG&E MAIDEN HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
Gai and Adrian hold the keys here and may well quinella the race with ZEPPELIN and BLACK SUNRISE. They finished next to one another last start at this level and perhaps Black Sunrise will derive the most benefit as it was his first start. And he made good ground late. Saying that, Zeppelin has been placed 6 times this level already. Good race.
Result (Quinella lost)

Race 8 - 5:49PM SUBWAY CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
Toppie TORYJOY has a big weight and is resuming here but does have class that she has displayed thus far that is superior to these. So in short, she has earned her weight. Won her maiden in town and has been runner up in the city too. None of these can boast stats like that.
Result (4th)


November 3


Race 2 - 1:04PM HUNTER JAGUAR CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
I love the back story here. This old boy, OAKFIELD JET, who is a rising 8YO, only began racing 3 weeks back and he scored at big odds in the mud at Kembla. Much harder here and he gets a firm track, but he obviously has a zest for the game and I'd keep him very safe.
Result (Unplaced) 

Race 5 - 3:09PM STEEL CITY FP F&M MAIDEN PLATE (1200 METRES)
I'm on MIMIC here. She gets back and will be spotting them a fair start but being trained on this track and having had 2 previous runs before make her a neat bet I think. Last start before spell 5 months back, she was 10th for home and rattled late for 4th behind a few smart ones. Drawn well here, field looks easier and should be finishing like a train.
Result (Unplaced)

Race 7 - 4:39PM ROBERTS LEGAL NEWCASTLE NOBBYS - BENCHMARK 70 HANDICAP (1600 METRES)
I know this is a recipe for disaster but I believe this bloke MO THE GREAT is ready to win again. Yes, it's been several starts since he scored and he leads and gets beaten more often than not, but his runs have been, I think, in slightly better company of late. And this track can play to leaders. So give him one last chance.
Result (2nd)

October 20


Race 3 - 1:56PM COLLABORATIVE CONSTRUCTION SOLUTIONS CLASS 2 HANDICAP (900 METRES)
She's had 14 starts but only won once - not good stats on face value. However VENTURE CAPITAL has placed a further 8 times! Is a rocket early and speaking of placing, looks nicely in here over this scamper. Big show.
Result (1st - $5.10)

Race 6 - 3:46PM AUTO ONE WARNERS BAY BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
It's a rise in difficulty to come from bush racing to the provincials, and step up in grade also, but I kinda think Mikayla Weir and SILENT DREAM might handle it here. The horse drops a lot in weight and form has shown she runs well with no weight on her back. She's in form too and is drawn to get a great sit.
Result (3rd)

Race 8 - 5:11PM RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE NORTHERN NSW BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
Old RADICAL IMPACT did enough last start when 3rd this grade to suggest he could give this rising star apprentice Mikayla Weir a double. He is down a bit in what he's raced in for the past 4 years and can rattle home.
Result (2nd)
