Into The Black Book – Gloucester Park


The OzRace Team comment on the ones to follow from the Fridays meeting at GLOUCESTER PARK

Friday 1st December 2017



“Eden Franco looked the winner on paper and that proved to be the case but Ace Bromac was game in defeat as he held on to third place from the breeze. He looks a horse to follow going forward.” – Trent Orwin

“got beaten two lengths in the second of the Invitational Drivers Series after drawing awkwardly in barrier 6, suggest to continue to follow on an each way basis.” – Robbie Dewar


“fought on tenaciously to finish third in the Parliamentarians’ Cup after she covered extra ground from gate seven and then faced the breeze. The Victorian six-year-old looks set to be a major contender in the Mares’ Classic on Friday night. She has won eight of her past 10 races and was most impressive when triumphing at Gloucester Park on November 24. Three weeks earlier she had won at Melton as a long odds on favourite. Ameretto has an enviable tally of 25 wins and 17 places from 59 starts.” – Ernie Manning


“I have loved the way he has stood up this Inters campaign, probably won’t even get close to running a place, if he gets through  next week trainer Phil Costello might have a WA Pacing Cup, Fremantle Cup proposition.” – Robbie Dewar


“Motu Meteor had no luck in the 4YO Championship and he looks one of the better chances to run a place behind Ultimate Machete pre-barrier draw for the Golden Nugget. Expect him to be at his peak for that Group 1 feature on Friday night.” – Trent Orwin


“successfully graduated to higher class when he ran second for trainer Ross Olivieri and reinsman Chris Voak at his Gloucester Park debut in the Four-Year-Old Championship. He had been Narrogin and Northam winner at his previous two starts. The gelding, with eight wins and four places to his credit in a 16-start career, should now be considered as a betting proposition in Friday night’s Golden Nugget. He has the potential to hold long-term prominence in feature events.” – Ernie Manning


“was never going to beat the winner of the opening event Reaza Grunter but did enough to suggest that he will play a part in the final of the San Simeon Series this Friday night, is in a clever stable.” – Robbie Dewar


“Finishing quickest in the final race on the program, Costa Del Magnifico was held up until close to the line and would have rocketed home if he had found clear running late. Looks to be versatile which means he can be followed next start.” – Trent Orwin


“produced a top run to finish second by only a half-head after starting from the second row. Forced to cover extra ground early, he led at the bell and fought on gamely. The five-year-old, trained and driven by Kyle Harper, has won 14 races and run four places from 31 starts. His looks capable of stepping up to better quality events and achieving success. Harper, with a relatively small team, consistently develops smart pacers and he is a talented reinsman.” – Ernie Manning
