13 July 2019 (Racing at Rosehill Gardens)

Racing returns to ROSEHILL with wintry and windy weather forecast for race day. Currently looking at a HEAVY (8) surface with the penetrometer reading 5.93.

RAIL: +3M (ENTIRE CIRCUIT). We head to ROSEHILL with the rail out +3M. Given the conditions, very important to keep a close eye early on how track is playing. Given the wind, and on a heavy track, I think some races will end up battles of attrition, whilst smart ride (cover for as long as possible even in the straight) could pay big dividends.  

Average odds $7.09+ per suggested runner!

BEST VALUE @ $7.10+ & @ $6.50+

BEST LONGSHOTS @ $19+

8 June 2019 (Group 1 Stradbroke Day racing at Eagle Farm)

Racing at EAGLE FARM where most eyes are on nationally with some super racing once again, with not one but three Group 1s. Penetrometer 4.26, which equates to a GOOD (4) surface, BUT rain is forecast, with anything from 4-6mm so we look destined to land in the SOFT range.

RAIL: +2M (ENTIRE CIRCUIT). We head to EAGLE FARM with the rail out +2M, out from the TRUE last time. The forecast rain means guesswork needs to come into play. Critical to keep a close eye on how the track is playing ALL day, as things can change, especially with rain forecast to fall during the race card itself. If decent amount arrives early, expect them to start getting off the fence as the day progresses. To make things even trickier, new track, which hasn’t seen race during race day so we can only guess as to how things will pan out.

Average odds $18.27+ per suggested runner!
