Cessnock Tips – June 2
Race 5 – 2:25PM TAB – LONG MAY WE PLAY CLASS 3 HANDICAP (1350 METRES)
When it comes to good bloodlines, the Kim Waugh-trained JOY FOR US is full of it. By Lonhro out of a Flying Spur mare, there are no less than 14 Group One wins between the two of them so this five-year-old has something going for her. She is six starts into this preparation and hasn’t finished any worse than fifth so far. Last start, she saw a heavy track for the first time and it clearly didn’t bother her as she put paid to a Class 2 field over 1208m at Port Macquarie. She ran the best 800m-200m sectional of the day (at the distance) as she put more than a length on the field over the line. The experience of Andrew Gibbons help get her home that day and he remains aboard here for his second ride on the mare. She has drawn wide here but Gibbons should manage to slide across and find a sit with cover, probably in the back half of the field. With a solid pace being set up front, the five-year-old mare will get the last shot at them in the run home. Currently good value with the bagmen.
Race 7 – 3:40PM CESSNOCK LEAGUES CLUB BENCHMARK 66 HANDICAP (1150 METRES)
The Paul Perry-trained SCHEMER has been a model of consistency on the track which is evident just from his five starts this time in. The Epaulette gelding has finished top-three on three occasions and finished no worse than fifth all-up this preparation. Last start, he brought up his third career win at Quirindi where he snatched victory in the last stride in a BM58 over 1100m. He has drawn the middle of the field here and has early speed drawn all around him, which should see him settle somewhere near mid-field with cover. Ashley Morgan has partnered the grey to victory twice previously and remains aboard here. The four-year-old has a 3kg advantage over topweight, Kosciusko which could be a telling factor in the run home. He is currently at double-figure odds and despite the class rise, he looks outstanding value in this field.
