Race-by-race tips and preview for Goulburn on Monday

How to play it: Uprise to win and quinella 1 and 2

Odds and Evens (First 2): Split

Race 2 CL1 HCP (1400m)

Modest and fairly even race. Warwick Farm 5YO gelding 4. Rubino Veloce has hit the line hard in all three runs this prep and looks really well suited with superior soft track form and the visors going on.

Dangers: Local 5YO gelding 1. Acquittal is capable on his day  but very disappointing last start in a Randwick Highway when failing to run on from midfield. Back to much easier grade, and trainer has removed the blinkers  and off-set big weight putting a 4kg claimer on. Hawkesbury-trained mare 3. Our Blue Moon can give another big sight up front after winning his maiden fourth-up this track. Liked the improved run last start at Bathurst of rival Hawkesbury gelding 2. Banjo’s Voice who is now hard fit.

Odds and Evens: Split


Race 3 MAIDEN PLATE (1300m)

Wide open affair here, although keen on 4YO Warwick Farm mare 7. Sunsuzie who didn’t miss by much finishing hard under a bigger weight resuming at Gosford and was good second-up last prep in a stronger metro maiden.

Dangers: Warwick Farm 4YO mare 4. Madam Oaks can bounce back after disappointing as a short-priced favourite at Gosford. That was her first run in 10 weeks, and up to a more suitable trip here augers well. Another Warwick Farm visitor, 4YO gelding and northern hemisphere-bred 1. Canasta had two trials before hitting the line nicely on debut this track, and extra little distance also an obvious plus. Hawkesbury 3YO gelding 11. Jailbreak hasn’t run a place in five starts but took on much smarter fields last prep, and first-up run at Canterbury was sound. Watch the market too on stablemate 3YO colt and first starter 8. Bullet Storm (Sizzling x Transocean by Lonhro) who has had two trials.
How to play it: Sunsuzie to win and trifecta 4,7/1,4,7,8,11

Odds and Evens: Split

Race 4 CL2 HCP (1200m)

It doesn’t get much easier here, with several chances all from Warwick Farm stables. One of those is promising 4YO mare 10. Mosuo (also accepted for Gosford on Tuesday) who was disappointing first-up at Wyong but showed real ability last prep and is already a winner this track for a stable having a great run.

Dangers: Progressive 5YO gelding 5. American Salute (also accepted for Gosford on Tuesday) has really attacked the line in two runs back this prep and is still on the way up, although up sharply in weight and drawn off the track. Expecting a big run fresh from 5YO gelding 1. Baanone who has had two forward trials and can take up a nice trailing position from the good gate, while 6YO gelding 4. Accelerato is no star  but never shirks finding the line. Last effort in a BM64 at Gosford when doing his best work late would nearly get him into the placings again. Canberra 4YO gelding 7. Ninky Nonk is hard to place first-up in this field but normally comes to hand quickly and is a knock-out hope at big odds.
How to play it: Mosuo to win

Odds and Evens: Split

Race 5 BM 58 HCP (1200m)

Thin but tough race. Warwick Farm 4YO gelding 3. Drifter flopped badly on the Canberra synthetic after being heavily backed but can rebound back on the turf with the winkers going on. Three runs back wasn’t far off the smart Rhythmic Pulse at Gosford.

Dangers: Canberra 6YO mare 1. Suneeze is a four-time winner from 19 and again been around the mark this prep. Finished hard in a higher grade on the synthetic last start and stable is shrewd at placing their runners. Moruya mare 2. Judy In Disguise found her best this grade last start but bigger weight and wide barrier might be a bridge too far. South Coast mare 5. Sestina has been freshened since ploughing through the mud to win this grade at Nowra, but probably needs it wetter to repeat the dose.
How to play it: Drifter to win and quinella 1 and 3

Odds and Evens: Odds

Race 6 BM 66 HCP (1400m)

Another even field that looks ripe for the exotic players, with most having an each-way claim. Settled on local 6YO staying mare 8. So It Is first-up. Took on tougher company last year, including fast-finishing effort in a stronger Rosehill Highway in the spring. Hasn’t started for nearly 10 months but draws to do little or no work in the run.

Dangers: Kembla 6YO mare 7. Titaness has the found strong in her last two, and draws to get a nice trail midfield one off the fence. Include 6YO Canberra mare 5. Bella Amante third-up and Warwick Farm gelding 4. Tycoon Mar who is also third-up and back in grade.
How to play it: So It Is each way and box trifecta 4,5,7,8

Odds and Evens: Split

Race 7 BM 58 HCP (1600m) 

Rosehill 5YO mare 4. Northern Lights stepped up sharply to the mile last start this track, and battled on okay after leading, and is significantly fitter now third-up.

Dangers: Warwick Farm gelding 3. Eden Vale continues to improve, and draws to get a nice run with plenty of cover.
How to play it: Northern Lights to win
