TERANG TIPS – APRIL 19
Race 6 – 3:30PM Jim McKinnon BM78 Handicap (1200 METRES)
One of the good support races on Terang Cup day is Race 6, which sees the BenchMark 78 gallopers tackle the 1200m. DUECOURSE has been posted at the healthy odds of $15 in early markets and can spring an upset over the likes of Sweet Snitty and Moor Wanted. The six-year-old struggled at Sandown on April 1, fading into 13th behind Street Icon, however, she races very well at Terang track and has won two from two at the track and trip. Prior to her Sandown effort she was a big winner at BenchMark 64 level over the 1200m here, clearing to a three length win from Stayawake and she has an edge in fitness over some of her key rivals. The daughter of Duporth will just need some luck from barrier 10 but if she can find a spot in the running line she should be strong at the business end of the race.
Race 8 – 4:35PM Sungold Milk Terang Cup (2150 METRES)
The feature at Terang is the Terang Cup and THE BLACK LEOPARD can go very close. The Henry Dwyer-trained galloper takes on the likes of Too Close The Sun, but was a dominant winner when stepping up to the trip at Sandown on April 8 in a BenchMark 78. On that occasion, the six-year-old was third up and settled out three wide without cover before swinging out even wider on the turn, hauling in his rivals and going on to win by nearly three lengths. That was a hard performance to ignore and the form out of that isn’t too bad with the runner-up, Declares War, going close in a $200,000 race at Caulfield on Saturday. At his last campaign, the lightly raced galloper was strong at this distance range, placing in two on the trot over the 2000m at Caulfield and with Michael Boy to ride from barrier 5 he can go very close.
