Bathurst tips – june 15
RACE PREVIEWS 🧐
Race 6 – 3:55PM BATHURST RSL CLUB BENCHMARK 66 HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
Dropping in class here, ACTON SHALE (No.4) will be hard to hold out in this event. The Hinchinbrook gelding put back-to-back victories on his resume recently against opposition tougher than his rivals here. After a Class 3 win at Wagga over 1200m, he franked that effort by making it two in at row at Queanbeyan next start. In BM66 company, he sat midfield early then was bumped badly on the turn. Recovering quickly, the four-year-old re-balanced and finished too strongly for them, winning by more than two lengths in the end. Last start he lined up ina BM70 over 1300m at Canberra where he chased the leader home all the way but the final 100 metres saw he out as he raced beyond 1200m for the first time in more than a year. He finished fifth that day, beaten just over two lengths on the line. Today he has drawn the fence and should avoid trouble from there. The bay gelding drops back to the 1200m and should find this easier than his Canberra rivals. He looks the pick of the day at Bathurst.
Race 7 – 4:35PM KENNARDS HIRE BENCHMARK 66 HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
Making the trek again from Warwick Farm here is the Garry Neale-trained HEMSTED (No.2) who looks well placed to repeat his last start efforts on this track. He was fourth-up last start and reached his peak where he took a sit behind the leaders and got the better of them in the run home, winning the BM58 contest over 1400m by more than a length. The effort was better than it looked as he carried 61kgs that day an drew the outside gate (11). Today, he’s drawn wide again in gate nine but has enough early gate speed to cross and find a similar sit to last start. Up in class but down in weight, he looks great value in this event.
