Midweek racing this Wednesday, and there’s some good selections from Sandown Lakeside and Randwick Kensington. Check out the thoughts of our PlayUp form analyst below.
R3 #3 Pascero
Very good winner on debut, getting splits late in the race and flying to win. Displayed a very good turn of foot once into the clear and even being eased down over the line, still ran the 2nd fastest last 200m split of the meeting. Fitter and improved here with race experience, his debut win figures have him measuring right up to these especially from a soft draw.
R6 #1 Here To Shock
Last chance saloon for this horse, who was very well backed first up at Sandown and ran very well, and then was a touch disappointing at Flemington last start in a much harder race. Third up here, and back to midweek grade will definitely suit. The stable have a huge opinion of this horse, expecting him to reach the higher echelon of group company. So with two runs now under his belt, especially the first up run being very positive, i’m confident he breaks through again here under D Oliver.
R8 #9 Ninyo
Having something small on this horse at odds, who resumes for the Aaron Laing camp. She has only had the one career start, and saluted on debut at huge odds at Moe on a heavy track. She settled last off a moderate tempo, and got out widest on the turn and managed to fly home to win impressively. It was the fastest last 400m and 200m of the entire day, and the fastest last 200m split of the race by a lazy 6.5L. This is a much harder assignment here, but she’s worth a speck.
R1 #2 Devil’s Throat
Very unlucky in the Magic Millions maiden race at the Gold Coast first up, going very close behind the talented Warmth to be only beaten 0.2L. He was arguably very unlucky not to win that, and now gets his chance in a much easier midweek race here in Sydney. T Berry hops aboard, drawn well in barrier four, and is very well weighted here for a talented horse with only 57kg.
R7 #10 Flash Point
Very keen on this horse at a price in the last, coming off a super trial lately at Randwick. Four runs this prep have been a touch mixed, with her best effort coming two runs back on a wet deck at Hawkesbury. There is rain predicted tomorrow, so hopefully by the last the track has received a good drenching. The Randwick trial was enormous as mentioned, she sat right on the heels of proven G1 superstar Eduardo and managed to match motors the entire trial. Looks a huge each way bet with only 54kg.
