Kembla Grange Tips – May 19
Race 6 – 3:55PM TC AIR & ELECTRIC CONDITIONAL BENCHMARK 70 HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
Unbeaten this preparation, CATAPULT will strip even fitter here and over the extra distance can make it three on the trot. Resuming from a six-month spell, the four-year-old finally cracked it for a Maiden win at Goulburn while lumping 60kgs over the 1000m sprint. Then last start, he faced BM66 company and settled mid-field after drawing wide in gate 11 (of 12). Again he waited til the final 200 metres before finishing strongly to grab victory on the line, also running the best overall race sectional of the day. Up in grade (and distance) but down a little in weight, he is expected to settle back in the field again and come around them in the run home. Fitter for those runs, he looms as a big threat here.
Race 7 – 4:35PM MARKEY SADDLERY BENCHMARK 64 HANDICAP (1600 METRES)
Improving greatly after his first-up failure, EXTREME JEWEL is drawn to do no work here and looks a real threat to these. The nicely-bred Zoustar filly put her best foot forward at Orange two starts back where she comfortably beat home a Class 1 field over 1400m, after drawing wide in gate 12. Then last start, she followed that up with a bold effort in her first attempt at Class 2 grade. Settling near last, she tried to run them down again but came up half a length short, finishing second behind Greek Hero over 1500m. She jumps to the mile here but finally draws a gate and from the fence, she may even try to settle mid-field just to stay in touch with the pace. Three starts into this preparation and should be almost at her peak and is capable of bouncing back here.
