Gatton Tips – july 12
RACE PREVIEWS 🧐
Race 3 – 1:40PM LOCKYER VALLEY PAINTING Class 2 Handicap (1600 METRES)
The Lindsay Hatch-trained GUNNOBE (No.4) has been thereabouts recently until last start when she bobbed-up at odds in a Class 1 here over 1400m. With Justin Stanley on board for the first time, the Wicked Style mare jumped from the outside gate (8) and settled a long last. Shen then steadily improved during the race and on straightening was sitting just behind the leaders although out wide. Carrying 58kgs that day, she finished too well for the rest and went on to win by two lengths on the line. She steps up to the mile today and has Baylee Nothdurft back for his second ride on the four-year-old. Drawn wide again, she will probably drop back early and play the waiting game. Carrying the same weight today, she is in the right frame of mind now and could go back-to-back.
Race 5 – 2:54PM TRADIES DAY SATURDAY 5TH SEPTEMBER QTIS 3-Y-O BENCHMARK 62 Handicap (860 METRES)
Unbeaten first-up, the Toowoomba visitor, ZAITEKI (No.3) is resuming here off a 14-week break and from a favourable draw, might prove too slick for these today. Last preparation, the Golden Archer filly resumed at Dalby off a 19-week spell and on fresh legs that day proved too strong for her Class 1 rivals, winning that 800m sprint. Here, she has drawn nicely in gate two and with plenty of early speed drawn outside, she will probably box-seat. Baylee Nothdurft returns to the saddle after steering the three-year-old to her maiden win when on debut at Ipswich. She is clearly at her best when fresh so it may pay to stick with her here at good each-way odds.
