Toowoomba Tips – February 15
Race 1 – 4:45PM PRYDE’S EASIFEED BIOMARE CUBES Class 2 Handicap (1210 METRES)
Promising three-year-old RAPIDO GRIS looks well-placed again to bounce back and bring up win number three. The Jest Spur gelding won back-to-back races before hitting the paddock for three months. Resuming, he finished strongly at Warwick to grab third prize over 1100m then repeated that effort here last start in Class 2 company behind Kasita over the same trip. He should settle mid-field here and stepping up in distance here, and a solid pace set up front, he will be charging home and will be hard to hold out.
Race 2 – 5:20PM PRYDE’S EASIFEED EASIPERFORMANCE BENCHMARK 58 Handicap (1300 METRES)
Running with some value here and I am expecting improvement with BRIDGET’S DIARY to run in blinkers for the first time. Three starts back she was a winner at Warwick in Class 1 company over 1100m, then was disappointing at the Sunshine Coast when beaten more than six lengths, although she was up in grade that day. Last start, she settled near the tail of the field and spent most of the race looking around, despite wearing winkers. She did run home well however, making up some ground to finish 4.5 lengths from the winner. Trainer, Garry Schwenke has taken the winkers off and will fit blinkers on the Red Dazzler mare which should see her focus more. The step up to 1300m will suit her better. In the small field, she could ‘bob-up’ at odds.
Race 3 – 5:55PM PRYDE’S EASIFEED RACING CUBE Class 4 Handicap (1050 METRES)
Looking for back-to-back victories here, THE GREAT BOOMBINO is drawn and weighted to give this a real shake. Unwanted in the market last start, she surprised many when saluting first-up at $31 in a BM70 over 1000m at the Sunshine Coast. Drawn wide (gate 10), she crossed to share the lead in the 15 strong field and in the run home, showed a good turn of foot and left the rest to fight over the minor money, winning by 2.5 lengths eased on the line. Trainer Craig Cousins had her wearing pacifiers for the first time that day which clearly made a difference. Should she reproduce that effort here, from gate two the Spirit Of Boom mare looks the best of the day.
