Narromine Tips – April 27
Race 5 – 2:35PM NARROMINE USMC ALL VETERANS CLASS 1 & MAIDEN PLATE (1600 METRES)
Yet to miss a top-five finish, SHAMUSU SHO cracked it for a big win last start, and could go on with it here. The Shamus Award gelding has been thereabouts at his first four starts but really put his best foot forward at Armidale last start. The late money turned out to be ‘spot-on’ as he was backed in from $2.10 to start a white-hot $1.75 favourite and he ran accordingly. He drew the fence and was first out of the gates, but Rory Hutchings then eased him back to be near the tail on settling. Still second-last and five deep on the turn, Hutchings said ‘go’ and the four-year-old released an incredible turn of foot and whizzed past them in an instant. He went on to win by five lengths in a canter. The step up to the mile here should be no problem and if he can reproduce that turn of foot again, he wins this comfortably.
Race 8 – 4:20PM NARROMINE USMC DIGGERS CUP (1300 METRES)
Well, he’ll have to do it from the car park but the Kody Nestor-trained SNEAK PREVIEW has the class to match it with this field and take home the Cup. Nicely bred, by Smart Missile out of an Encosta De Lago mare, the four-year-old has had just 11 starts but has won five of those to date. Two starts back, he was second-up from a 14-week spell and overpowered them in the WRA Championship Qualifier at Coonamble and went on to win comfortably in the end. He then lined up in the Country Championships Final at Randwick and in the big field, never got a crack at them in the run home. The track was against him that day rating a Heavy 8 but he wasn’t disgraced, finishing just over two lengths from Gracie Belle over the line. Back on top of the ground here, he will find this much easier, back in country grade. Nick Heywood takes the reins for the first time and if he can manage to cross and find a sit somewhere around mid-field (with cover), he is big chance of taking this one out.
