Another Saturday upon us and this Saturday finds us in a bit of a rich vein of form. It has been a solid few weeks for our members and results for June are looking really strong after a couple of struggling months in April & May. Looking forward to another big day. The race I am probably most confident on is the fifth in Sydney where I expect one of Embracer or Roheryn to salute for us, I think that is a really good two bet play, but struggled to split them

Ms Catherine (No.1) & Acumen (No.6)

This looks one of the more interesting races of the day over the 1000m for the three year olds but broken record time, it looks tough like most of the other races on the day. There look to be some handy horses going around nonetheless. I thought the best betting option in the race was Brazen Brando. This does look a race where there is a lot of early speed and from the low draw he looks like he might just get that nice suck run in behind them and be able to finish strongly late. He has always been a horse that has possessed good natural ability but has struggled to put it all together. This might be the campaign. His first up win albeit in a weaker race on the synthetic track at Pakenham was dominant. He sat back, rounded his rivals up and came away for an easy win. He gets good weight relief here dropping down to 54kgs after Tom Stockdale’s claim and I just think if the breaks come his way he is going to be really charging late. Around the $12-13 mark I think he is a good bet in the race.

I thought Wilmot Pass jumped out well leading into this first up run. He is another galloper that has shown good ability in his career to date but probably hasn’t really put it all together. He has a very strong SP profile and a few of those runs last campaign he was probably unlucky not to win in particular the day at Mornington. I just think sitting off a fast speed first up over 1000m he also gets the opportunity to be really strong late and off the two good jump outs fancy he comes here ready to play on Saturday with an in form Froggy Newitt on board. I will have something on him.

There is no reason to jump off Iconic Star either in my opinion. I thought she was fairly dominant at The Valley last start in beating Sansom and Ms Catherine and I see no reason why any horse from that race would turn the tables here. She hung out around the home turn on a day that was favouring those on the rails but still proved too strong and was really good through the line for Ollie. She draws to again get that good run on speed and for mine has come up a big price around the $8-9 mark and is well worth a ticket.

The 1000m is a slight concern for Proper Rogue and had this race been 1100m I probably would elevate him higher. I just think from gate two though with that good speed he might come into play. He can track them up and when they start to wilt late he will be strong late. He was good winning his only two runs last campaign and has jumped out well leading into this. He looks a pretty likeable horse, the only think not really likeable about him is some bloke named Mutley owns him. Hopefully Old Cocko might crack a smile if he runs well on Saturday. I think he will and obliged to at least save on him at double figure odds.

Betting strategy

I will have $20 the win on all three of Iconic Star, Wilmot Pass and Brazen Brando! I will lock in the $9 and $13 with TopSport about Wilmot Pass and Brazen Brando and I will also have $15 the win on Proper Rogue just in case! I will just add an extra $5 to Wilmot Pass too now after a couple of scratchings on Friday morning!

Time To Reign (No.1) & You Make Me Smile (No.9)

This is one of the smaller fields of the day here over the 1100m for the sprinters and it has been made even smaller by a couple of early scratchings. I am sticking with a couple of proven first up performers here in Embracer and Roheryn to get the job done.

I feel Embracer might be a horse that is on the verge of going to another level this campaign. He was super at the first four runs of his last campaign winning three of those before an end of campaign run behind funnily enough his main rival here in Roheryn. I loved the way he went about it last campaign. He got up on speed and really owned a few of those races and ran his rivals into the ground. The suggestions are that he has come back well this time in too. His two trials leading into this first up run have been excellent and I fancy he will come ready to rumble on Saturday. He draws the second outside gate which is a little tricky from a map point of view, but in the smaller field and by the middle stage of the day I am hoping that being off the fence a little won’t be too much of an issue. If that is the case and he can get into a nice rhythm on speed I think he will take some running down and happy to be with him.

Roheryn is just a jet when fresh and this race just looks as if it will set up perfectly for him. There looks like being good speed on paper and from the middle gate for J-Mac he just looks likely to lob in that perfect stalking position off the speed. If those leaders overdo it he is going to be the one coming off their heels and being really strong late. He has been given a nice quiet trial leading into this assignment and we know he just flies fresh as I mentioned having won all three starts when first up. I think he is going to be very hard to hold out and I am surprised the two gallopers aren’t more pronounced favourites. I think it is a very good early two bet play as I expect Time To Reign and Prime Candidate to both drift, so the mid to high $4 on offer about both at the moment looks to be a really attractive price.

Betting strategy

I will have $40 the win on both Embracer and Roheryn and with both will have half now at the $4.40 Embracer and $4.80 Roheryn and the other half at Top Fluc!

Racing in Brisbane comes from Doomben this Saturday for what looks to be quite a strong meeting. There are good depths to the fields and looks one of the better meetings in recent times away from the big main days we have seen in Brisbane. The track is currently rated as soft but the weather looks relatively dry and we should certainly be racing in that Good 4 – Soft 5 range. Like I said, it is a good meeting and hopefully we can find a few winners.

I am kicking the day off in the fourth race which is over the 1350m for the three year olds. I see no reason to be jumping off Scathing here. We have been on him in higher class races at bigger odds at his last couple where he has chased home Hightail and Dawn Passage and he has performed well running fourth on both occasions. He gets a nice little drop back in class here and that should see him prove very hard to hold out. He has clearly come back to racing in good form this time in. He won his first two starts of the campaign impressively and then took on those stronger races at his past two. He has been given a solid trial at Doomben since the last start effort behind Dawn Passage to keep him up to the mark. He chased through the line strongly in that providing he can get into a good position from what is potentially a slightly awkward barrier draw, he should prove hard to hold out. Keen to be with him.

Sea Raider is another horse that comes into this race in really good form. He has won his last two at the Gold Coast in dominant fashion. He has relished the step up to the 1400m. The softer tempo of those races compared to the sprint trips have seen him find the front and really own and dominate those races. Glen Colless has build up a good association with him. He sticks here and if he can find the front around Doomben without exerting too much early energy there is every reason he is going to prove hard to get past again so I want him on side.

Arthur In Charge looks the value runner in the race. He makes his way up from Sydney for the Mark Newnham camp having won well first up at Newcastle. He had the gun run there but I thought it was a pretty dominant and soft win on the line. That was over the 1200m so he should relish the step up to the 1350m here and he just draws to get the perfect trailing run behind the speed around Doomben from gate four. From that position I think he can be right in the finish and is well worth a ticket at the double figure odds.

I will have $50 the win on Scathing, $20 the win on Sea Raider and $15 the win on Arthur In Charge!

He won his first two starts of the campaign impressively and then took on those stronger races at his past two. He has been given a solid trial at Doomben since the last start effort behind Dawn Passage to keep him up to the mark. He chased through the line strongly in that providing he can get into a good position from what is potentially a slightly awkward barrier draw, he should prove hard to hold out. Keen to be with him.

Sea Raider is another horse that comes into this race in really good form. He has won his last two at the Gold Coast in dominant fashion. He has relished the step up to the 1400m. The softer tempo of those races compared to the sprint trips have seen him find the front and really own and dominate those races. Glen Colless has build up a good association with him. He sticks here and if he can find the front around Doomben without exerting too much early energy there is every reason he is going to prove hard to get past again so I want him on side.

Arthur In Charge looks the value runner in the race. He makes his way up from Sydney for the Mark Newnham camp having won well first up at Newcastle. He had the gun run there but I thought it was a pretty dominant and soft win on the line. That was over the 1200m so he should relish the step up to the 1350m here and he just draws to get the perfect trailing run behind the speed around Doomben from gate four. From that position I think he can be right in the finish and is well worth a ticket at the double figure odds.

This looks one of the more interesting races of the day over the 1000m for the three year olds but broken record time, it looks tough like most of the other races on the day. There look to be some handy horses going around nonetheless. I thought the best betting option in the race was Brazen Brando. This does look a race where there is a lot of early speed and from the low draw he looks like he might just get that nice suck run in behind them and be able to finish strongly late. He has always been a horse that has possessed good natural ability but has struggled to put it all together. This might be the campaign. His first up win albeit in a weaker race on the synthetic track at Pakenham was dominant. He sat back, rounded his rivals up and came away for an easy win. He gets good weight relief here dropping down to 54kgs after Tom Stockdale’s claim and I just think if the breaks come his way he is going to be really charging late. Around the $12-13 mark I think he is a good bet in the race.

I thought Wilmot Pass jumped out well leading into this first up run. He is another galloper that has shown good ability in his career to date but probably hasn’t really put it all together. He has a very strong SP profile and a few of those runs last campaign he was probably unlucky not to win in particular the day at Mornington. I just think sitting off a fast speed first up over 1000m he also gets the opportunity to be really strong late and off the two good jump outs fancy he comes here ready to play on Saturday with an in form Froggy Newitt on board. I will have something on him.

There is no reason to jump off Iconic Star either in my opinion. I thought she was fairly dominant at The Valley last start in beating Sansom and Ms Catherine and I see no reason why any horse from that race would turn the tables here. She hung out around the home turn on a day that was favouring those on the rails but still proved too strong and was really good through the line for Ollie. She draws to again get that good run on speed and for mine has come up a big price around the $8-9 mark and is well worth a ticket.

The 1000m is a slight concern for Proper Rogue and had this race been 1100m I probably would elevate him higher. I just think from gate two though with that good speed he might come into play. He can track them up and when they start to wilt late he will be strong late. He was good winning his only two runs last campaign and has jumped out well leading into this. He looks a pretty likeable horse, the only think not really likeable about him is some bloke named Mutley owns him. Hopefully Old Cocko might crack a smile if he runs well on Saturday. I think he will and obliged to at least save on him at double figure odds.

Betting strategy

I will have $20 the win on all three of Iconic Star, Wilmot Pass and Brazen Brando! I will lock in the $9 and $13 with TopSport about Wilmot Pass and Brazen Brando and I will also have $15 the win on Proper Rogue just in case! I will just add an extra $5 to Wilmot Pass too now after a couple of scratchings on Friday morning!

Time To Reign (No.1) & You Make Me Smile (No.9)

This is one of the smaller fields of the day here over the 1100m for the sprinters and it has been made even smaller by a couple of early scratchings. I am sticking with a couple of proven first up performers here in Embracer and Roheryn to get the job done.

I feel Embracer might be a horse that is on the verge of going to another level this campaign. He was super at the first four runs of his last campaign winning three of those before an end of campaign run behind funnily enough his main rival here in Roheryn. I loved the way he went about it last campaign. He got up on speed and really owned a few of those races and ran his rivals into the ground. The suggestions are that he has come back well this time in too. His two trials leading into this first up run have been excellent and I fancy he will come ready to rumble on Saturday. He draws the second outside gate which is a little tricky from a map point of view, but in the smaller field and by the middle stage of the day I am hoping that being off the fence a little won’t be too much of an issue. If that is the case and he can get into a nice rhythm on speed I think he will take some running down and happy to be with him.

Roheryn is just a jet when fresh and this race just looks as if it will set up perfectly for him. There looks like being good speed on paper and from the middle gate for J-Mac he just looks likely to lob in that perfect stalking position off the speed. If those leaders overdo it he is going to be the one coming off their heels and being really strong late. He has been given a nice quiet trial leading into this assignment and we know he just flies fresh as I mentioned having won all three starts when first up. I think he is going to be very hard to hold out and I am surprised the two gallopers aren’t more pronounced favourites. I think it is a very good early two bet play as I expect Time To Reign and Prime Candidate to both drift, so the mid to high $4 on offer about both at the moment looks to be a really attractive price.

Betting strategy

I will have $40 the win on both Embracer and Roheryn and with both will have half now at the $4.40 Embracer and $4.80 Roheryn and the other half at Top Fluc!

Racing in Brisbane comes from Doomben this Saturday for what looks to be quite a strong meeting. There are good depths to the fields and looks one of the better meetings in recent times away from the big main days we have seen in Brisbane. The track is currently rated as soft but the weather looks relatively dry and we should certainly be racing in that Good 4 – Soft 5 range. Like I said, it is a good meeting and hopefully we can find a few winners.

I am kicking the day off in the fourth race which is over the 1350m for the three year olds. I see no reason to be jumping off Scathing here. We have been on him in higher class races at bigger odds at his last couple where he has chased home Hightail and Dawn Passage and he has performed well running fourth on both occasions. He gets a nice little drop back in class here and that should see him prove very hard to hold out. He has clearly come back to racing in good form this time in. He won his first two starts of the campaign impressively and then took on those stronger races at his past two. He has been given a solid trial at Doomben since the last start effort behind Dawn Passage to keep him up to the mark. He chased through the line strongly in that providing he can get into a good position from what is potentially a slightly awkward barrier draw, he should prove hard to hold out. Keen to be with him.

Sea Raider is another horse that comes into this race in really good form. He has won his last two at the Gold Coast in dominant fashion. He has relished the step up to the 1400m. The softer tempo of those races compared to the sprint trips have seen him find the front and really own and dominate those races. Glen Colless has build up a good association with him. He sticks here and if he can find the front around Doomben without exerting too much early energy there is every reason he is going to prove hard to get past again so I want him on side.

Arthur In Charge looks the value runner in the race. He makes his way up from Sydney for the Mark Newnham camp having won well first up at Newcastle.

From that position I think he can be right in the finish and is well worth a ticket at the double figure odds.
