MOREE TIPS – July 16
RACE PREVIEWS 🧐
Race 5 – 3:40PM MOREE CUP 6TH SEPTEMBER CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1300 METRES)
Denied a hat-trick last start, the Brett Thompson-trained CHEVRON PRINCE looks well-placed to avenge his last start defeat and bring up win number four for his connections. After going back-to-back on the Wellington track, he then lined up in a BM58 at Muswellbrook (on a soft track) with Andrew Gibbons in the saddle. Carrying 59kgs, he drew wide in gate 10 (of 13) and as expected, was trapped three-wide without cover. Heading for home, he had nothing left after covering the extra ground and finished mid-field, beaten just over two lengths on the line. So much was against him that day including the soft going. Today, he draws nicely in gate four and has Ron Simpson back in the saddle who is two from two when partnering the four-year-old. He is up in class today but amongst country class company. After Simpson’s claim, he carries just 52.5kgs which will give him a huge advantage here. With a clear run to the line, he looks hard to hold out.
Race 6 – 4:15PM OFF THE TRACK NSW GWYDIR HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
With an excellent first-up record, HEAVEN’S HIGH looks ideally-placed her to kick-start this preparation with another win. Two starts back, the So You Think mare took out the Armidale Newmarket in fine fashion where she finished best to win by more than a length on the line. Then last start, she drew wide in the Country Championships Qualifier at Tamworth and couldn’t recover from it, finishing down the track that day. She was then sent to the paddock for 18-weeks before returning to work. She trialled recently at Tamworth where she finished second on an unsuitable Heavy 10 track. She has run on fresh legs four times in the past for two wins and a second placed finish. First-up again here, she Ben Looker back in the saddle who has won three times with her previously. Drawn ideally in gate two today, she maps well and will be hard to keep out.
