Kilcoy Tips 26/07/2022   


Race 1 No. 4 SUPER SWEET – ($2.80)    

The opener sees the return bout between Redheads Rock and SUPER SWEET who clashed recently on the poly track. Market is moving with the former who does plenty right in terms of putting herself into the race early. Thought Super Sweet was the filly we’d prefer to take home as she’s showing some ability while still learning. She found herself strung up in traffic while third-up in that 1400 metre event. Finished doggedly once clear and we saw her sprint sharply from well back on a heavy track when resuming. Meets her more fancied opponent with a weight swing and has fared well at the barrier draw.



Race 2 No. 4 LUVYOUANYTIME – ($4.80)   

Regular rider Chris Meheen comes back aboard LUVYOUANYTIME who proved the ultimate video watch horse when resuming. Settling towards the tail as one would expect when resuming over seven furlongs, Wendy Peel found no luck in running. As the winner Vitae coasted in front to kick away and score on the synthetic surface, Peel was left with a handful of horse with nowhere to go. Concern is backing mid distance/stayers second-up, however we are loath to take the price about Vitae in the going. While Luvyouanytime may not win often as his get back style, he is consistently amongst the placings and handles all conditions.



Race 4 No. 2 RELICTA – ($10)   

We typically want to look for those with a bit of pace while drawing the inside three barriers when accessing the runners at Kilcoy. Drawing out with RELICTA does hold some concerns, however we feel this may be reflected in the quote. He showed brilliant gate speed in his first two race starts under Nathan Fazackerley, both were around this trip. Relicta had been run down late on debut, only to lead and come away again at his next start. This was his maiden win over 800 metres where he handled a similar turning track at Dalby. He showed no problems in getting through the Soft 7 on that occasion.
