WEDNESDAY 28 SEPTEMBER 2016 – ROSEHILL GARDENS
Rail: +8m Entire Circuit
SEDANZER (Race 1, 1.40pm, 1100m, No. 6, rider Johan Victoire, 56kg).
Sedanzer (Sebring x Voltdanze), three-year-old filly. After two nice trials, I have decided that this filly is ready for the 1100m in city company first up. Her work has been that of a very smart filly and I think she will measure up nicely after a good stint in the paddock. I have plenty to work with and she definitely will improve on whatever she does first up. Rough each way chance on Wednesday.
SHACKLETON (Race 2, 2.15pm, 1100m, No. 10, rider Kerrin McEvoy, 56kg).
Shackleton (Fastnet Rock x Wiener), three-year-old colt. Finally! I have been very patient with this colt because I know how good he is. His last trial was that of a very good colt, and from barrier two with a champion hoop aboard, Shackleton will jump, run and he will take some catching. He is one of the most progressive colts in the yard and I can’t wait to see what he can do on race day. He is a very exciting prospect. Strong winning chance.
BROADSIDE (Race 3, 2.50pm, 1900m, No. 3, rider Koby Jennings (a2), 60.5kg).
Broadside (Raise the Flag x Anam Cara), five-year-old gelding. This gelding only knows how to win. Whatever is thrown at him, he just cops on the chin and keeps on giving. He is a smoky Melbourne spring prospect and even with 60.5kg on Wednesday he looks the horse to beat. He will run well; he is one of those types of horses that will never be disgraced in a race as he only has one effort level and that is 100%. I love these types of horses and Broadside has this important quality plus talent to burn. Big winning hope on Wednesday.
CHLOE’S COMET (Race 5, 4.05pm, 1500m, No. 6, rider Tim Clark, 57.5kg).
Chloe's Comet (Northern Meteor x Chloe), four-year-old mare. Week after week this mare continues to run well. She drops to just about the lightest weight she has ever been asked to carry on Wednesday; also the mare has the perfect barrier, she is up to the 1500m and she is $13 to boot. Well worth an each way bet as she just keeps on giving. Super each way hope.
THURSDAY 29 SEPTEMBER 2016 – WYONG
Rail: +2m 1350m-210m, cutaway applies, true remainder
ALU ALU (Race 4, 2.55pm, 1200m, No. 1, rider Johan Victoire, 59kg).
Alu Alu (Not a Single Doubt x Montecatini), five-year-old gelding. After what seemed like years off the scene, this gelding has come back and come back better than ever. His first two runs this time in have been exceptional and he is now ready to make the next step – the step into the winner’s circle. He is a big winning hop on Thursday.
