Taree tips – june 29
RACE PREVIEWS 🧐
Race 6 – 3:45PM XXXX GOLD F&M BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
Trained at Kempsey by Barry Ratcliff, GWENNYBEGG (No.3) has raced herself into form of late and looks well-placed here to give this a real shake. Two starts back, she brought up career win number two at Tuncurry with a convincing win in a Class 1 over 1400m on a Soft 6 that day. Then last start, she was back on top of the ground at Grafton and stepped up to 1720m. She settled nicely behind the pace with cover but just didn’t have enough speed left to run down the leader, finishing second on the day. Ratcliff has brought her back to the 1400m here and although drawn out today, she has enough early gate speed to cross somewhere near the pace. Ray Spokes is sticking with her after partnering the Shamus Award mare in her three previous runs. She got out to as much as $14 last night but single figures is all that’s available now. She is worth an each-way ticket in this.
Race 7 – 4:20PM SAXBY’S SOFT DRINK CG&E BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
Second-up today, DASHING ‘N’ DARING (No.8) has a history of solid second-up performances and looks in the mix here. The Moshe gelding hasn’t won a race this year but in his defence, he has been racing against much harder company than he faces here today. Coming off a 15-week break, he won a Gosford barrier trial by more than three lengths before returning to the track against BM64 company. In Heavy 8 conditions, he struggled to handle the track and as his first-up record shows, he missed a podium finish that day. He drops back in grade here to face a similar line-up to what he beat in Albury six starts back. He won’t spend too much from gate one and has the services of Grant Buckley for the first time. Race favourite, Senatorial is first-up for the fourth time and is yet to finish top three when resuming. He also has to lump 60kgs which is the most weight he has ever carried, a big ask when on fresh legs. I see far more value in Dashing ‘n’ Daring today and is currently showing great each-way value for a galloper dropping in grade.
