No new tricks for 9yo HELLO CHINA (Best Odds Currently $16 with Sportsbet). Shaun Guymer, who has ridden Hello China in six of his seven victories, rides for the first time this prep. The horse will be hard fit and ready to go with the three runs already under his belt. First two races were over the mile, spaced four weeks apart. He then jumped straight out a 2500m BM66 at Wagga. Hello China ran on strongly that day to finsih with a third placing. As a back marker, he’s not typicaly the type who we want to see come this far back in trip. He is a winner here, and at this distance though. On that Occasion, Guymer sent him on a long run around the field early, and Hello China raced clear to score by 3L. Most of his wins have come at a roughie’s price, and he is a dual heavy track winner too.
Natural running type BLEUE’S CHOICE (Best Odds Currently $3.80 with Sportsbet) has off the track here. Still pay to follow as he’s in some good form already this prep. Jumped and ran along over 900m at Goulburn, first-up, only to find one better late. Nick Heyward to the mount over this track and trip, plus on a similar Heavy 10 surface. Kept going too strongly for the rest, breaking the maiden in good time to the day. Blue’s Choice showed he was up to the next grade as he sat 3WNC the speed when back to Goulburn again. He was forced off the track by the inside runners, yet still looked the winner until he was claimed in the shadows. Heyward will be banking on that early speed out of the gates to cross, and Blue’s Choice can land again.
four kilo claiming apprentice Teighan Worsnop gave a peach to score with SESTINA (Best Odds Currently $7.50 with Sportsbet). That was here over the 1000m on a similar Heavy track, and following a let-up for Sestina. Back the fence early, Teighan picked their way through without losing momentum to score. Mathew Cahill took over at the duties at Narrandera, where Sestina missed in a blanket go. Since disapointed when trapped deeo at Corowa, and probably looking for the extra furlong now. Worsnop back in the saddle from an inside gate, and Sestina can win again with luck in running.
